LendingCrowd’s Helen McKay made Fellow of CBI


Helen McKay, LendingCrowd

We are excited to announce that LendingCrowd’s very own Helen McKay has been made a Fellow of the Chartered Banker Institute (CBI). This is recognised globally in the banking industry and awarded to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the development of the banking profession.

Helen (pictured) is a career banker, working in the sector for over 30 years. Currently a member of the Edinburgh, Lothians & Fife Local District Committee of the CBI Helen is also involved in the Financial Educational Partnership which has seen her work continuously towards upholding and enhancing banking standards and professionalism.

The Fellowship is an accreditation of Helen’s tireless work to educate about banking and to enrich standards. This is especially significant at LendingCrowd – one of the first P2P platforms to achieve full FCA authorisation.

‘I am very happy to have achieved this,’ said Helen. ‘I am proud of the recognition and I look forward to continuing to uphold the high standards of customer focused ethical professionalism the Institute promotes.

This development is another testament to the high standards of LendingCrowd’s in-house credit specialist team. Headed up by Ian Cunningham (also a Fellow of the CBI) the team works tirelessly to ensure every borrower on our platform is thoroughly and fairly vetted.

Senior Credit Risk Specialist Helen has been at LendingCrowd since the beginning and we are delighted that her hard work and commitment have paid off.  Helen’s Fellowship is the latest accomplishment in a career that has seen her work at Clydesdale Bank prior to setting up LendingCrowd’s in-house credit team with Ian.

The LendingCrowd credit team, which also includes Credit Risk Specialist Donald McKinnon, has over 80 years’ combined experience dealing with business loan applications.

Working on a case-by-case basis with each company to offer flexible solutions, the team rigorously assign each company a Credit Band to allow investors to understand the risks and rewards of each borrower.
