An online lender was celebrated as the top Fintech Lender at the MFAA National Excellence Awards for the second year in a row, after being recognised as the best in its class across each state in the weeks preceding.

Prospa has 8,900 intermediary partners and has delivered more than $1bn in funding to 19,000 small businesses across Australia and New Zealand.

According to Stephen Hale, MFAA head of marketing and communications, the Fintech Lender category '"recognises the sector’s increasingly important role in supporting the broker community and helping brokers to diversify and grow their business."

“This national award, and Prospa’s clean sweep across all states, is a testament to the strong partnerships Prospa has developed with brokers across the country," he added. 

Prospa executive GM of business and sales development, Matt Bauld said, “We’re honoured to be recognised as the industry’s fintech partner of choice, not just at a national level, but in every state and territory across Australia. To receive this award two years in a row, and to have our individual BDMs celebrated in the community is a huge achievement.”

Meanwhile, Prospa team member Erin Manhood was a finalist for National Business Development Manager - Lender/Support Services, after winning her category at the SA/NT state awards. Team members Dave Robertson, Simon Winters and Ben Howell were also recognised as finalists in the WA, QLD, and NSW/ACT state awards.

“Thank you to the broker community and to the MFAA for their continued support of the fintech category. Our broker partners are a vital part of Prospa. Together we’re transforming how small business owners access finance in Australia, making it simpler, faster and providing great customer experiences," said Bauld.
