Asset Finance International reports:

“Peer-to-peer lending pioneer Zopa has launched a new car finance operation in the UK as it seeks to expand its share of the market.

Zopa has been providing auto finance as part of its personal loans service since the business launched the first peer-to-peer company in 2005, but following its approval for a banking licence last year, it has developed a specialist auto finance arm that will target brokers, dealers and comparison sites for growth.”
