The Car Finance Company judged an 'inspiration'

The Car Finance Company has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain. This is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses in the UK.

To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.

The aim of the report is to demonstrate how smaller companies are the driving force behind the UK economy. The UK is getting back to full fighting economic strength and the 1,000 companies that feature in the report are proof of all that the country has to offer.

The Car Finance Company lends car finance to people denied access to mainstream credit. 

The Car Finance Company managing director Mark Smith said: “Featuring in the 1000 Companies To Inspire Britain Report is a very proud moment for us as a company. It is great to see the report full of thriving companies and the positive findings are sure to enrich businesses across the UK and drive them to ensure the UK economy makes healthy recovery.”

Xavier Rolet, chief executive of the London Stock Exchange Group said: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”

Founded in 2007, The Car Finance Company recently ranked in second place in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track Top 100. The top 100 published annually since 1997, is a league of Britain’s private companies with the fastest growing sales over the last three years. This achievement makes The Car Finance Company the UK’s second fastest growing business this year.

    Is there a worrying underlying message here in that the second fastest growing business in the country is for customers with bad credit?
