DF Capital celebrates 1st year as a bank

In September the bank celebrated its 1st anniversary of being awarded a banking licence by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA).

The company, which was founded in June 2016, and then listed on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market in 2019, initially focussed on providing flexible working capital solutions to dealers and manufacturers across the UK.
