“Liquidity is important to our customers, providing confidence that they can access their money quickly and easily; and also for the market more generally, allowing RateSetter to plan for growth,” said Mario Lupori, RateSetter’s chief investments officer (pictured).
“This milestone highlights how deep and liquid RateSetter’s market is.”
