2014 Lender Lists:
Aspire Money and Best4Loans
They did start out on the high street though that was back in late 2005. They state that they process in excess of 55,000 personal loan applications each month. This would imply that they would likely be advertising extensively in magazines, newspapers etc since you don’t tend to see them advertised too much online. On the secure application form at www.aspiremoney.co.uk you can access cash from £500 to £10,000, although £25,000 is listed as a possible sum. The variable APR displayed is 58.5% APR. They have also recently added an instant cash loans section to their website that uses Pounds to Pocket.
Best4Loans was formed in 2004 and they are located at www.best4loans.co.uk. On their homepage they promote handling 100,000 loans each year. This brokering service is owned by Valour Finance Group who did have another introducer company called the Unsecured Loan Company, but this has now closed. They also own a direct lending brand known as Lightning Loans. With the company in question you can access between £80 and £25,000. You have to pop in a small secure quote into www.best4loans.co.uk and from here they provide comparison listings. This will showcase a mix of subprime lenders like Everyday Loans and those targeting prime markets such as Sainsbury’s Bank.
