Credit Unions - Secured Asset Lending

Secured asset finance for credit unions

Start offering secured lending with our fully compliant secured asset lending package.  We can offer you a complete suite of fully compliant documents offering you a ‘ready-to-go’ solution for Secured Asset Finance.

Recognising a need for increased lending options

Outside of the UK, credit unions often meet many of the lending needs of their members, not just the need for unsecured loans.  By offering more than one lending product these credit unions are able to compete with other commercial lenders, such as banks and payday loan companies, and help provide their members with a good rate on a car loan or some form of secured lending.  They provide lending in a way which is compliant, safe, and with sufficient expertise to succeed.  They had to meet the needs of the regulator every bit as much as we would here in the UK.  Their members don’t need to go elsewhere for a good rate on a car loan or some form of secured lending.

Filling a gap in the market

In recognition of this need, we have developed a complete suite of fully compliant lending documents, which provide a ‘ready-to-go’ solution for secured asset finance.
