FUNDINGSECURE has named two experienced entrepreneurs as board members to support its growth plans.
The peer-to-peer pawnbroking platform has appointed Raj Kumar and Carl Davies to its board.
Kumar has more than 25 years of experience in running and building value in a variety of companies, including property development, travel, industry, education and the food sector.

“The addition of the two new board members will add significant knowledge and experience to FundingSecure, ensuring our continued successful growth in the P2P marketplace,” the firm added.
The Buckinghamshire-based platform, which launched an Innovative Finance ISA last year, also revealed that it has now lent out more than £280m to date. It hit the £200m lending milestone last December.
