PFG Overview

Provident Financial's core business is lending small sums of credit to poorer sections of the UK population. The demerger of its international home credit business was completed in July 2007. It now trades independently as International Personal Finance. In addition, the firm has sold its motor insurance business, Provident Insurance, to a subsidiary of GMAC Insurance Holdings.
