BCCA and the Consumer Finance Association have announced their intention to merge.


In a press statement they say that “the short-term lending sector has changed radically over the last few years

in areas such as regulation and lending culture. It is time for a change in sector representation. The directors of the BCCA and the Consumer Finance Association are therefore pleased to announce that we have agreed to join together to represent alternative lenders and allied services.

They believe they can better represent the unsecured lending market by joining together. The NPA worked successfully with both bodies previously and will continue work with the new body. The new CEO will be the current BCCA CEO Jason Wassell, a former NPA board member in his pawnbroking days with Cash Generator. We wish them well.
