Fast Track 100

Founded in 1999 by James Benamor, the Richmond Group operates under five brands in the credit market for individuals who have been denied access to mainstream sources of finance. The group offers unsecured credit through its brands FLM and Loanfinder UK, and debt management services through Debtline. It also provides accident, sickness and unemployment insurance cover through Payment Guard. This year, it launched a “pay day” loans business to meet demand for short-term small loans. Sales at the Bournemouth firm have grown 72% a year from £7.1m in 2006 to £36.3m in 2009.
