New figures released today by the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA) show 22% growth in consumer finance new business in February, compared with the same month last year.
Credit card and personal loan new business together grew by 23% compared with February 2015, while retail store and online credit increased by 6% over the same period. The second charge mortgage market reported new business growth of 40% by value and 17% by volume – the fifth consecutive month of double-digit volumes growth.
