- Non-Standard Finance said its loan-book growth, impairment levels and risk-adjusted margin are all ahead of its expectations.

"The opportunity that we identified back in 2015, namely to deliver highly profitable growth in each of our three operating divisions, remains substantial," the company said.

"Having increased investment in our infrastructure and networks, we are now seeing an acceleration in the rate of loan book growth whilst maintaining tight control over impairment."

"As we enter the seasonally important Christmas period for our home credit division, we remain confident about the group's prospects."
