General Finance experiencing good growth

General Finance is seeing growth in its business as investors chase good yields.

Thursday, 2 July 2015

“The year to March 2015 was a good year for General Finance”, director James Lockie said. The company was issued with a Non-bank Deposit Takers licence by the Reserve Bank in February 2015. Its deposit base grew by 20%, over the last year, and its lending business has expanded.

"Profitability also strengthened on the back of increased lending.”

General Finance reported the following audited result:

  •  Pre-tax profit from operating activities increased to $432,586, up 52% from $284,211.
  •  Lending (and receivables) increased to $9.33 million, up 7.0% from $8.71 million.
  •  The company’s deposit base increased to $7.79 million, up 20% from $6.47 million.

Capital was maintained at $3.2 million, with a risk weighted capital ratio of 55% (well above the 10% required).

"The company is currently experiencing a strong demand from those looking to place deposits at higher than bank yields," Lockie said.

General Finance is a licensed Non-bank Deposit Taker, specialising in short term advances, secured over residential property.
