LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Circle Ltd (WCL) submits its application for full permission authorisation by the Financial Conduct Authority as a move towards trying to become a leading UK lender.
Western Circle Ltd (WCL), a London-based lending company trading as Cashfloat.co.uk, has confirmed that it has submitted its application for a full permission to enter into High-Cost Short Term Credit (HCSTC) agreements this month. A full FCA permission will strengthen the company standing in the financial market, as well as allow them to carry out the rights and duties of a responsible lender in HCSTC agreements.
“After a lot of work and review, we have submitted our application for a full permission. Our aim is to become the most affordable, transparent, and friendly short term loan provider in the UK. ” says Jeremy Lloyd, a WCL representative.
Western Circle currently holds an Interim FCA permission. In fact, most lenders in the UK still operate under an interim permission. However, this revolution of new lenders obtaining a full permission will certainly change the dynamics within the market.
