We’re a team of experienced business leaders with over four decades of collective experience in investment banking, risk management and tech.
As diverse as our backgrounds are, we are unified in our culture. Here are our core values:
Default to open. We believe there’s nothing we can’t discuss as a team - be it constructive feedback or a novel idea.
Make each other better. We look out and support each other’s development both personally and professionally.
Make sure it’s fun and get things done. There isn’t a dull day here at PeerPower - there’s lots to do and a great team to journey with together.
Our first principle is about building a Trusted Platform - and we strive to align our culture, mindset and actions with that. We enable trusted transactions between people and businesses.
With the current economic environment, we believe we can help Borrowers to secure better rates and Investors to achieve better returns. In the longer term, we want to support the ecosystem through partnerships and product extensions.
We believe the world of financial services is moving towards a customer-centric and frictionless one. And we will do our part to make customers’ financial lives Smarter, Better and Faster... because although life isn't fair, hassle-free financial access should be.
