Lucy Hodge (pictured), managing director of Vantage Finance, said: “This is a hugely important moment for Vantage Finance, and testament to how far the business has come since our launch in 2004. The investment will allow us to take our growth and expansion even further, continuing to offer the intermediary market the rigorous approach to quality and service delivery for which Vantage Finance has become known.
“I would like to thank every one of our intermediaries and lender partners for their commitment and loyalty so far, and share our excitement in the journey that lies ahead. As we grow, our focus will always be on providing the best possible offering and achieving good customer outcomes for every partner that we work with”
