Masthaven has been named as one the of fastest growing European companies.
The retail bank was recognised as the 240th fastest growing company in Europe by the Financial Times in the FT1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies.
Masthaven grew by 505% between 2012 and 2015 making it the 43rd fastest growing company in the UK and is just one of 78 London companies to make the list.
Andrew Bloom, CEO and founder of Masthaven (pictured above), said he was delighted that the team had been recognised for its hard work and dedication to clients.
“We had a hugely successful five years growing our specialist lending business and since then we have continued in our quest to continue to grow and develop.
“The growth we achieved has helped us to further evolve our business and last year we launched as a new retail bank.
“This means we can help more people borrow or save in ways that suit their needs, and remain focused on challenging the status quo of traditional banking.”
“As the only UK bank operating a partnership model, with all permanent employees stakeholders in the business, we are delighted to continue growing while remaining true to our core principle of putting people at the heart of our organisation.”
