Alternative Finance Lender George Banco Celebrates their 2nd Year with Continued Growth

George Banco is an innovative alternative finance direct lender based near Frome in the south-west of England. They provide unsecured personal loans or guarantor loans to customers who struggle to get credit via mainstream lenders.

Serial entrepreneur Geremy Thomas founded George Banco back in October 2013, although the official public launch was not celebrated until March 2014. Since that time they have grown at a healthy pace, gaining a strong foot hold in the digital arena and have developed relationships with a highly effective network of brokers and introducers.

Geremy recognised that with the right team George Banco could become a leader in its field, and so that’s what he got, by way of Chief Executive Marc Howells, Sales Director George Thomas and Non-Executive Director, Andy Dewhurst. With over 150 years of management experience between them, they and the rest of the team have collectively driven George Banco to a place of stability and growth in a very short time.

Marc Howells commented:

Driving change is always a challenge, from raising funds post 2008, to getting a business to break even after two years – a challenge, but not without its rewards.†We have been lucky enough and privileged to work with some of the highest quality brokers on the market.† Combine that with a great internal team and cutting edge systems has enabled us to provide a service that, we believe,† gives us a strong competitive edge in a highly competitive market.

George Banco celebrated its 2nd anniversary on 10th March and continues to push the limits of superior customer service. Treating its customers with the utmost of respect in what can sometimes be an emotionally stressful situation.

Speaking to George Thomas Sales Director, he commented:

We will continue to look for ways we can diversify and innovate in a highly regulated environment. In order to stay current we will strive to refine our technology, as well as our understanding of our customers. This will allow us to adapt and change as the market demands and the economy dictates. We have had a few knocks along the way but we have weathered some fairly testing situations and no doubt we will encounter plenty more. But for now we will enjoy some celebratory cake and champagne before we resume business as normal.
