We’re a Consumer Credit Awards 2017 Winner!

We’ve done it!

We’re delighted to have been the only firm to pick-up two awards at the Consumer Credit Awards 2017, and it’s all down to our customers.

We picked up the “Consumer Credit Champion” and “Best Newcomer” awards. The awards are run by Smart Money People, and decided by customer voting, so we’re particularly delighted to be recognised as a leading consumer credit business that puts customers at its heart.

Our win was announced at an awards ceremony at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair, London, in front of some of the biggest consumer credit firms in the UK. The evening was hosted by Mock the Week regular Gary Delaney, and we’re still over the moon that we were able to attend and take home an award.

Winner Badge_CCA 2017_BlueAngela Clements, CEO & Founder of Fair for You says:

“We set up Fair for You to create an alternative to high cost credit, and we want to change the way we lend to lower income households in the UK. Angela Clements, CEO & Founder of Fair for You says We are absolutely delighted to have our work recognised by the only people that really matter – our customers. 

Credit needs to be affordable, but it also has to be better structured, with highly visible cost, and with better support for customers. When credit is better designed, it gives customers one of the key tools they need to avoid the poverty premium which sees millions being extracted from our poorer households and communities every week.”

The founder of Smart Money People, Mike Fotis, said,

I’d like to congratulate Fair For You for taking home two awards in the Consumer Credit Awards. Fair For You was set-up to make a positive contribution to the financial lives of those that often need the most help…. and Fair For You’s customers are clearly pretty impressed with this new entrant. I hope the team at Fair For You are truly proud of these two awards.”

About the Consumer Credit Awards

The Consumer Credit Awards use the power of consumer voting to find the best consumer credit companies in the UK. Customers, not industry experts, decide these awards, so we’re particularly thankful that our customers took part.

The Consumer Credit Awards have become the largest consumer-voted awards programme within the consumer credit industry, and help to put the customer at the very heart of the industry, which is why we’re so grateful to win an award.

Awards were handed out in fifteen categories, ranging from “Best Personal Loan Provider” and “Best Newcomer.” Thanks to press and promotion, over 2 million UK consumers like you are likely to come across the Consumer Credit Awards in 2017.
