Who we are

We’re ordinary people, helping ordinary people, ever since 1974.

Over the last four decades, we’ve seen trends and technology come and go. The world is a very different place, and you have to move with the times.

Lending year-in, year-out – in good times, and not-so-good – we’ve grown into one of the finance industry’s best-kept secrets. We started life as one man, giving one loan. But these days, we’re a team of over 700, and have a loan book topping £3billion.
