Established in 2010, AI Global Media publishes SME News, a platform dedicated to providing insightful support, advice and news to the UK SME market. SME News’ awards aim to showcase the talent, hard work and commitment of firms from a wide variety of industries, and LendingMetrics is proud to have received recognition as part of the 2021 Business Elite Awards.

By being awarded 'Best Credit Reference Agency 2021', LendingMetrics have again been identified as an industry-leading business, following wide recognition in 2020; they were awarded 'Technology Partner of the Year' at the Consumer Credit Awards as well as 'Best Credit Risk Solution' at the Credit and Collections Technology Awards for the fourth consecutive year. In the final quarter of 2020, they were included in Buzzacott's Organic Growth 25, a roundup of businesses that have scaled successfully without external investment, and Credit Connect's Power List as a top 20 'premier' company, highlighting LendingMetrics as a business providing technological innovation and achievement.

Based in the UK and Australia, LendingMetrics has extensive experience in the field of online lending credit risk solutions and was even the first UK Credit Reference Agency to become fully authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. As a result, they are proud to have been recognised as a leading CRA and financial services provider.

The awards deliberation process was in-depth and, in order to showcase only the very best companies in each respective field, SME News' dedicated awards team researched the nominees thoroughly to ensure that the awards act as a reputable and unique resource for their readers.
