Freedom Finance has reported a record month in June.
Last month saw over £10.7 million worth of loans completed through Freedom Finance’s soft search loan system.
The firm says these results highlight a significant increase in consumer appetite for both unsecured and secured lending products and better options being offered by lenders.
Freedom Finance’s year-end results for financial year 2013 also revealed a 40% increase in profits compared to the previous year.
Nicola Georgiou, managing director of Freedom Finance, said: “Lenders are starting to offer better options for borrowers, which is leading to a significant uplift in consumer appetite for loan products. We see this as an indication that consumer confidence is growing and that the economy is starting to show signs of recovery.
“Lower rate lending products are great news for consumers but borrowers need to be wary of the pitfalls. Simply applying for the lowest rate loan on a traditional comparison site can damage a credit score so applicants should make sure they use ‘soft search’ sites, which find the best rate for their individual circumstances without having a detrimental impact of their credit rating.”
