Cabot Credit Management Announces Financial Results for the Year Ending 31 December 2014 PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 26 March 2015

Cabot Credit Management, a market leading acquirer and manager of consumer debt, today announced the financial results for the year ending 31 December 2014.

“Another strong quarter completes our successful year, with portfolio purchases up by 83% compared with the year ending 31 December 2013, exceeding our full year target, and with a significant proportion of purchases coming from our Irish operation” said Ken Stannard, Chief Executive Officer. “We have continued to focus on keeping the customer journey at the heart of our operation which we believe puts us in a strong position as we go through the FCA application process.

“During 2014 we achieved the highest ranking in OC&C’s prestigious annual Credit Management and Debt Collection index, ahead of more than 60 international debt collection and recovery companies.

"The integration of Marlin and Cabot has gone extremely well, and we are currently in the process of completing the transition to a single collections platform for the combined debt purchase operation.

“We also had two key new appointments, Ryan Stanley, as our new Operations Director and latterly Charlotte Taggart joined as our General Counsel and has subsequently become a board member of the Credit Services Association (CSA), the UK trade association for our industry.”
