Sub-Prime/Non-prime Lender of the Year

  • Proposal acceptance rates
  • Investment in staff and processes
  • Demonstrable ability to add value to lending partners’ sales operations

  • Evidence of customer satisfaction being balanced with a need for sustainable business practises

Rising Star Award

Motor finance is famously an industry of experienced heads who know their industry like the back of their hands.  This can make standing out a difficult task for newer members of the industry, and this award looks to help highlight the work of someone under the age of 35.  The winner does not need to have yet risen to a senior job, but will need to be someone who can evidence the positive impact they have had on the motor finance industry.
