Merger of Consumer Finance Association and BCCA PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 04 October 2017
The Consumer Finance Association and the BCCA are pleased to announce the completion of their merger. This brings to a close the process that was first announced in late July.  

Jason Wassell, formerly Chief Executive of the BCCA has been appointed to run the new organisation. Speaking earlier today he said,

“Through this merger, we believe that we can better represent the entire sector, from new start-ups to the market leaders. Our members provide lending online and on the high street. We will continue to develop our growing representation of credit brokers.

“Any independent observer of high-cost short-term lending would agree that we have seen radical changes over recent years. Companies have entered and exited the market. The sector leaders are different. Products have changed, as has the customer base.

“More importantly – we have seen real culture change. Go to any lender, talk to their staff, and you will hear them focus on treating customers fairly. It is time for us to also change our association to deal with the next set of challenges.”

“I am delighted to have been asked to be the Chief Executive of the new association. It is no secret that I have been keen to see the changes required to improve representation. It has required a formal process, but through great co-operation we have got this done very quickly.

“We have already got off to a great start. The two association teams have always worked in close co-operation representing the interests of short-term lenders. Over the last few months we have engaged with the Financial Conduct Authority, with the Financial Ombudsman Service and other regulators as a single team.”
