We've won again!

We are delighted that CrediCar have been awarded the Rate for Risk Innovation Award at the Asset Finance Connect UK Conference & Awards which were held in St Pauls, London on the 9th November 2021.

Our team has worked very hard on building our rate for risk decision engine module since the discretionary commission rules were introduced by the FCA in January this year. We are seeing more lenders explore rate for risk and we believe the opportunity of this in the pre-approval space will accelerate in 2022. 

We look forward to creating value to the auto-finance eco-system in 2022!
