“During the ongoing pandemic, we've been able to close mortgage transactions in half the time of most traditional lenders,” said Anthony Sherman, CEO at Simplist. “With that said, our focus on technological ingenuity, efficiency and customer experience predates the pandemic and will remain a priority long after its threat has abated. We are thrilled to receive this recognition from FinTech Breakthrough as it is great to have our hard work acknowledged and validated.”

The 2021 FinTech Breakthrough Award program attracted more than 3,850 nominations from across the globe.

“The traditional process of getting a mortgage can be stress-inducing and many consumers often leave money on the table by only submitting an application with one or two lenders,” said James Johnson, Managing Director, FinTech Breakthrough. “From its inception, Simplist has been laser-focused on reinventing the mortgage journey and they have created a breakthrough mortgage experience that people actually want. We are thrilled to name Simplist as winner of our ‘Best Digital Mortgage Company’ designation for the 2021 FinTech Breakthrough Awards program.”
