After its pilot launch, an online lending service has announced its growth plans, looking to revolutionise the way people access credit in the UK.

Set up by senior figures from the UK’s financial sector, including ex-Citibank executive Paul Salariya, FairQuid has confirmed that it hopes to bring an end to the high-interest predatory lending practices of high street lenders and Payday loan companies.
