We treated credit risk and financial fraud with paramount importance, this is at the heart of what we did.
All borrowers were subject to a stringent due diligence check carried out by our experienced underwriting team. We conduct numerous separate checks to limit credit risk through a 30-stage checking process. We only lent when we believe the borrower will meet their repayment obligations.
We also make use Lexis Nexus and Creditsafe, which are two of the leading UK fraud detection systems. These systems provided access to a centralised database that cross-references borrower information across their network of participant members.
