Peer To Peer Finance News announced the their Power 50 for 2020 in early October and Simple Crowdfunding's MD, Atuksha Poonwassie is recognised in the top 10.
The 2020 Power 50 identifies those whose exceptional achievements have been driving growth in the peer to peer sector, in what has been the most unprecedented year in generations. It recognises individuals leading the UK’s largest and fastest growing platforms and those that have shaped the sector into what it is today.
"We give a particular mention to the top 10 most influential individuals who have made the most significant impact in 2020. This year the top 10 underwent a shake-up with a number of new entrants.....Other new names on the top 10 – although not new to the Power 50 – were Abundance Investment’s Bruce Davis and Simple Crowdfunding’s Atuksha Poonwassie, who not only run successful platforms but also help to drive change through their work at the UK Crowdfunding Association."
Atuksha sits alongside the UK MD of Funding Circle, the Chief exec of Assetz Capital, RateSetter, Zopa and the Director of Financial Services at the Treasury and others. It is wonderful to see that there are 4 women in the top 10.
On reading news of the the award in the press, Atuksha said:
“For Simple to be recognised as an impactful business in this sector is a real honour. I have to admit that it was a wonderful surprise to be sitting alongside such impressive individuals in this industry. It clearly demonstrates our continued drive to bring new and innovative products to our investors."
