Crystal clear after fifteenth year

Santander Consumer Finance (SCF) is celebrating fifteen years in the UK automotive finance sector this month.

Since launching in August 2005, SCF has grown and established itself as one of the UK’s leading automotive finance providers expanding into the motorcycle finance market with three manufacturer partners KTM, Husqvarna and Yamaha, alongside two joint ventures: Hyundai Capital and Banque PSA UK, 11 vehicle manufacturer partners and a network of over 4,000 dealer partners.

Focusing on the continual development and investment in its products and services, for both customers and dealer partners.  Together with a comprehensive suite of retail finance products and services, including a contract hire offering soon to be extended to motorcycles.

Investing in digital business solutions has become a key focus in recent years, having developed a finance calculator which can easily integrate with dealer websites, giving customers the capability to tailor a finance quotation. 

SCF have now also launched eSign Plus. This delivers a package that is both convenience and flexible, allowing customers to decide where and when they complete their online finance agreement.

Supporting customers has and always will remain at the centre of everything SCF does.  In 2019, SCF partnered with The Money Advice Trust to launch the first ever Motor Finance Guide for dealers, focussed on vulnerable customers.  During the Covid-19 pandemic SCF acted quickly and decisively, offering a three-month interest and fee free payment deferral to those customers who had been financially impacted.

Vik Hill, CEO Santander Consumer Finance said “Let’s not forget what really makes SCF different…its people. The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated once again just how incredible the spirit at SCF is. During the most difficult, challenging, and stressful of times”

“I am incredibly proud of what SCF has become over the past 15 years, providing great products, business solutions and service to our customers, OEM and dealer partners.
