    Prepaid Financial Services (PFS) has been named the UK Business of the Year in the 2019 European Business Awards.

    PFS, originally an Irish fintech startup, was chosen from 2,753 businesses named ‘Ones to Watch’ in a list of business excellence published in July.

    The fast-growing firm was selected as the national winner in the “Business of the Year Award with Turnover of €26-150m” category. It was chosen by a panel of independent judges including business leaders, politicians and academics.

    PFS 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, it won the overall pan-European Digital Technology award. 

    The company delivers payment technology solutions and is one of Europe's largest eMoney issuers.

    Noel Moran, CEO at PFS commented on their success: "This is another tremendous honour from the European Business Awards and is a credit to our hardworking team. 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.”
