We are pleased to officially announce that we have been awarded Fintech of the Year 2022 at the national BTA Awards!

Sponsored by global financial services firm JP Morgan, The Black Tech Achievement (BTA) Awards were created to help foster a more diverse, inclusive and innovative UK technology sector, given that the sector is growing almost three times faster than the rest of the UK economy.

Our team are extremely honoured to receive this award, given that we only launched in 2020 as a COVID-19 response solution. We are passionate about helping financial services sector firms reduce financial risk, by providing unique health performance data and insight on their clients, to prevent future issues or challenges and improve access to finance for the most under-served SMEs.

On receipt of this award that recognises innovators who have made an outstanding contribution to financial technology, our founder and CEO Joel Blake OBE stated “It is an honour for our humble start-up to have been recognised in his way, as we believe that the finance market needs new models of credit, lending and investment more than ever before, to adapt to the changing needs of under-served businesses who have been affected by global challenges.

He continued “But we also understand that many global challenges, like what is happening in Ukraine, do affect financiers themselves. They need deeper insight on their own clients, at scale, so they can better understand what they must do internally to be more inclusive. We are dedicated to help them achieve this, through our award-winning technology and on-going support.”

GFA Exchange is committed to helping organisations who seek to improve financial inclusion, by providing access to its technology via it’s cloud-based platform. We provide free 30 minute demonstration sessions for organisations who would like to see how we can help them reduce their financial risk - to book your free demo, please visit
