We went to the 2019 British Bank Awards as finalists in three categories last week. Before the night was through, we were named Best Mortgage Broker and Innovation of the Year
It’s was a massive result for us, especially since we were up against household names like First Direct and companies we really admire, like Revolut.
What’s more, the Innovation of the Year award was the second biggest title up for grabs on the night – so it was really special to win.
The award recognises ingenuity in the financial services sector, and we were given the title for our suite of innovative partnership platform APIs that empowers partners to develop their mortgage services using our unique technology.
Our co-founder and CEO Richard Hayes said: “This is a huge achievement for Mojo, especially since we were up against strong competition and some companies that we really admire.
“Both wins are a testament to the team we’re building and to the potential of Mojo. The innovation we’ve been recognised for is just the beginning. We’ve got some really exciting plans to help us create a better mortgage experience and we can’t wait to share them with everyone.”
Shaping the future
Michael Fotis, Founder of the organisation behind the awards, Smart Money People, said: “The British Bank Awards have one simple aim. To highlight the firms delivering high customer satisfaction. This may be firms with innovative products and services, as well as firms with tried and tested business models.
"This year, it’s been particularly pleasing to see more customers passionately engaged in the voting process, and willing to tell us what they like as well as what could be better.”
“Previous winners of our 'Innovation of the Year' award, powered by Bud, have helped to shape the future of finance. We can't wait to see what Mojo Mortgages has in store for the rest of 2019."
