Carlyle Finance has recently been purchased by WesBank, a leading global provider of instalment credit. In their home market of South Africa, WesBank are clear market leaders, writing in excess of £4 billion pa in the new and used car markets and a further £3 billion within the commercial asset finance and personal loan sectors.
WesBanks’ success has been founded on their partnership approach to doing business, their passion for providing exceptional customer service and their capacity for delivering innovation to the market.
Known by motor dealers as ‘The Dealer Bank’ and by consumers as ‘The Wheels Bank’, WesBank have won a 35% share of the South African motor finance market. They currently finance 1 in 3 of all new vehicles purchased, through their extensive partnerships with vehicle manufacturers and retailers.
Carlyle Finance has been, during recent years, one of the UK’s fastest growing independent motor finance companies and has established an industry leading reputation thanks to our dealer dedicated approach, the quality of our people and our capacity for innovation. Whilst historically Carlyle has occupied a relatively small niche within the motor finance market, WesBanks’ ambitions are to use Carlyle Finance as the platform upon which to build the UK’s premier instalment credit business. This will involve tremendous expansion of Carlyle within our core motor finance market and entry into a number of new vibrant sectors.
As part of our expansion programme we have a number of exciting opportunities for ambitious, energetic and talented motor finance professionals.
