OMNI CAPITAL RETAIL FINANCE GRANTED FULL FCA AUTHORISATION
Omni Capital Retail Finance (‘Omni Capital’), the Watford-based specialist consumer finance lender, has announced it has been granted full authorisation by the Financial Conduct Authority (‘FCA’).
Omni Capital provides customer finance via retailers and merchants in amounts from £250 – £25,000 and operates across nine distinct retail sectors. It has most recently launched a division servicing the marine sector.
The lender supports more than 500 independent retailers nationwide and has processed over a quarter of a million applications online and in-store.
Before being granted full authorisation, Omni Capital operated under the FCA’s interim permissions regime. The transition to fully-authorised status means the lender can continue to provide its partners with a complete range of regulated finance products while undertaking other appropriate regulated activities, including credit broking.
Michael Bevan, managing director of Omni Capital, said: “Achieving full FCA authorisation is a significant step in our upward progress as a lender providing much-needed liquidity to the UK’s all-important retail sector”.
“Authorisation demonstrates our unwavering commitment to responsible lending and will enable us to continue supporting retailers and consumers across the UK. I would like to thank my team for their hard work in helping the company achieve this milestone, and we look forward to exploring the exciting new opportunities it grants us”.
