“RateSetter was created to provide access to this asset class for ordinary investors and it’s important that there is someone whose role is solely to focus on that,” Lupori told Peer2Peer Finance News. “I want to see it become a household name for investors.”
Lupori said that his key focus will be on continuing to improve the product for customers and on growing RateSetter’s customer base.
“I want an active and engaged customer base who are advocates and happy with the service they are getting from us,” he added.
“It’s a refocusing of my role – before it was more broadly focused, now it is going to be laser focused.”
