About this site

Lenderscompared.org.uk is a free to use, independent price comparison website. Our aim is to help you find the best small cash loan. We're not here to sell you anything, so there are no sponsored results or other adverts on this site.

The website was set up after the Competition Commission's investigation into the home credit industry. The Competition Commission was closed on 31 March 2014 and many of its functions, and those of the Office of Fair Trading, were transferred to the new Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The CMA works to promote competition for the benefit of consumers, both within and outside the UK. Its aim is to make markets work well for consumers, businesses and the economy. To read more about the investigation and see why the Competition Commission thought that this website was necessary, please see the home credit Competition Commission inquiry pages in the Government's National Archives.

Lenderscompared.org.uk is paid for by the largest home credit companies. The website is governed by a board comprising representatives from these companies as well as a number of people who are independent of the home credit industry.

The voting members of the Governance Board are:

Independent Members

Nick Lord (Chairman)
Peter Tutton
Claire Whyley

Industry Members

Consumer Credit Association
Morses Club PLC
Mutual Clothing and Supply Limited
Naylors Finance Limited
Provident Personal Credit Limited

Credit Union Organisations

The Financial Conduct Authority and the CMA are non-voting observer members of the Board.

We are keen to hear your comments or suggestions about LendersCompared and you can use the feedback form. But please remember that we have to operate the website to comply with the instructions of the Competition Commission Order.
