Peer-to-peer lender Zopa saw its revenues double last year as more savers and borrowers used its platform ? but its losses also doubled as the business hired more staff to prepare for its planned future growth.
?We are delighted that we have doubled revenue in 2014, and we are on track to more than double it again this year to in the region of £23m,? said Zopa?s chief executive Giles Andrews.
