Haydock said its first-half 2021 lending for the business currently stands at over £420m.
“With continued investment in systems and people to support their expanding sales channels, the results demonstrate the success of Haydock’s strategy of accelerating organic growth,” the company said in a press release.
John Jenkins, chief executive of Haydock Finance, said: “The team have done a great job in what remains a difficult working environment to keep the focus on the customer in order to deliver a strong first half and set us up for the future”.
Andy Taylor, sales director of Haydock Finance, said: “Haydock is extremely proud to have not only delivered a record first half in 2021 but to also have supported so many of our introducers and their SMEs in what undoubtedly remains very difficult economic times.
“We would like to thank our team and everyone who helped to enable these fantastic results.”
Haydock says it will continue to invest and respond to introducer’s needs, with an increased focus on providing an excellent service experience, the business said in a statement.
