Prepaid Financial Services has been named the Business of the Year in the United Kingdom in the 2019 European Business Awards, one of the world’s largest business competitions.

PFS was chosen from 2,753 businesses named ‘Ones to Watch’ in a list of business excellence published in July and selected as the national winner by a panel of independent judges including business leaders, politicians and academics.

The fast-growing FinTech is the best company in the UK in the Business of the Year with Turnover of €26 to €150 million category and will now go on again to represent the United Kingdom in the final stage of the competition in Warsaw, Poland in early December. In the previous European Business Awards, PFS won the overall pan-European Digital Technology award.

“This is a significant achievement and Prepaid Financial Services is an outstanding leader in its field. To be chosen as a National Winner means it shows great innovation, ethics and success and is one of the best businesses in Europe. We wish PFS the best of luck in the final round,” stated Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards.

“This is another tremendous honour from the European Business Awards and is a credit to our hardworking team that we have been acknowledged as the Business of the Year in the UK. As a previous overall winner, PFS understands the high regard that the awards have been held in for the past 12 years, not just in Europe but internationally. This time, over 120,000 businesses were considered from 33 countries and we are delighted to be an ambassador going into the finals for companies in the UK and the FinTech industry,” said Noel Moran, CEO at PFS.
