Crystal Specialist Finance issued terms on over £1bn worth of business in 2015, a 62% increase on 2014’s previous record year.
During the final three months of 2015 the company issued terms of £316.2m, 55% up on the same period last year, bringing the total annual figure to £1,074m.
Meanwhile, completions throughout the year rose by 51% while enquiries were up 54%.
The company increased its staff numbers by 50% to 27, including key sales, marketing and IT appointments, invested over £350,000 in a new head office in Tamworth and appointed over 12 new lenders to its panel.
Jo Breeden (pictured), managing director of Crystal Specialist Finance, said: “Our aim in 2015 was to beat last year’s issued terms figure by 10%, but given the numbers in the first two quarters this forecast was revamped and I challenged the team to hit £1bn. This huge achievement is here for all to see.
“The rebrand has been hugely successful, brokers now fully understand our ability to secure highly specialist deals as well as secure the best options on standard applications. The numbers are up across all business sectors, bar none.
“The challenge now is to complete more business and continue the sharp upwards trend. January’s figures have surpassed those from last year, and we will continue to invest in all the right areas to ensure our service proposition continues to deliver on every promise and we individually service every application.”
