Oplo completes £225m securitisation – its first ever securitisation – aimed at accelerating Oplo’s progress towards becoming the largest consumer lender in the UK’s growing ‘new mainstream’ market

Oplo has over £400m assets under management and is on target to break through £1 billion in gross lending since its launch in 2009

Recent report by Oplo identified up to 26 million customers from traditional prime and near prime segments in the ‘new mainstream’ consumer lending market

Leading consumer lender, Oplo, is announcing today the completion of its first securitisation as the business targets continued growth supporting the UK’s ‘new mainstream’ lending market.

The £225m securitisation follows a series of investor roadshows in September.

Alex Mollart, Oplo Founder and Chief Executive, said:

“Oplo is on a mission to become the UK’s largest lender to the UK’s growing ‘new mainstream’ market of consumers looking for a fair way to borrow with flexible and affordable credit.

“Our first ever securitisation will play a key part in driving our ambitious growth plans over the next few years as we look to support even more hard-working consumers with new products and services.”

Over the past decade, Oplo has built a strong and growing consumer lending business, becoming one of the UK’s leading specialist consumer lenders offering personal, home and car finance loans to borrowers in the growing ‘new mainstream’ market.

Since its launch in 2009, Blackpool-based Oplo has lent over £800m, with over £400m of assets currently under management.

This first securitisation will underpin and accelerate Oplo’s ambitious growth plans as the firm aims to become the largest consumer lender of its type in the UK, leading the way in providing flexible and fair finance for the ‘new mainstream’ market.

Recent analysis by Oplo has identified up to 26 million customers from traditional prime and near prime segments in the ‘new mainstream’ consumer lending market, including up to 7 million conventionally prime customers unable to access mainstream finance from traditional lenders or choosing to use new digital lenders and alongside the UK’s growing ‘near-prime’ market which Oplo estimates now covers up to 19m consumers.

Securitisation Details:

  • First time issuance
  • £225m securitisation backed by a pool of UK second and subsequent charge Consumer Secured loans, originated from August 2017 onwards
  • Rated by Moody’s and S&P
  • Use of funds to pay down existing senior warehouses and support Oplo’s growth
