Central Trust has come a long way since it was set up by an accountant, Andrew Turner, in 1987 in a small office in central London. The company acts as an intermediary between the borrowing public and banks such as Lloyds TSB and Barclays, matching financial products with the banks’ target customers. In the right place at the right time to benefit from a surge in borrowing, it has driven up profits 81% a year, from £652,000 in 1997 to £3.9m in 2000, when it employed 113 people.
