He said: “Kuflink Group has grown rapidly in 2017 and it was important that we could welcome fresh expertise and promote talent from within to spread the responsibilities created by the success of the businesses.
"We are delighted to welcome our new directors. With the strong upward trajectory that has been such a feature of our year, it was important to ensure we had the right complement of experienced professionals on board. We now believe we have the correct balance in place.
"The makeup of the boards also reinforces the importance we place on maintaining complete separation between our P2P platform, Kuflink, and our lender, Kuflink Bridging. Investors can be reassured that investment and underwriting decision making is kept separate to ensure total transparency.
"Kuflink Group has had an extraordinary year and we have now laid the foundations for our businesses to go the next level in 2018.”
