In the News - Consumer finance new business growth in February

FLA report the growth of consumer finance new business in February 2018

New figures released today by the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA) show growth of 10% in consumer finance new business in February, compared with the same month last year.

Credit card and personal loan new business together grew by 10%, compared with February 2017, while retail store and online credit new business increased by 9% over the same period.

Commenting on the figures, Geraldine Kilkelly, Head of Research and Chief Economist at the FLA, said:

“The latest figures reflect the recent general improvement in consumer confidence. Real earnings have begun to grow again as consumer price inflation has slowed, which has contributed to consumers feeling more confident about their own finances and spending.”
