Facts & Figures
The Finance and Leasing Association is the leading trade association for the asset, consumer and motor finance sectors in the UK. Our members include banks, building societies, finance houses, credit and store card providers, motor finance companies and asset finance and leasing companies.
At the end of April 2012, the Association had 112 Full Members and 83 associate members, who provide services to our full members.
The facilities they provide - including finance leasing, operating leasing, hire purchase, conditional sale, personal contract purchase plans, personal lease plans, secured and unsecured personal loans, credit cards and store card facilities - account for a third of the UK’s unsecured lending and half of all car purchases.
In 2011 FLA members financed £72.1 billion of new business.

In 2011 FLA members provided £52.1 billion to the consumer finance sector, representing just under 30% of all unsecured lending in the UK in 2011.
FLA members provided £19.9 billion of motor finance in 2011 and financed more than 60% of all new car registrations in the UK.
