Two PFG brands won big at the Credit Awards last night.

Our Vehicle Finance division, Moneybarn was last night named Responsible Lender of the Year while Vanquis Credit Cards took home a second award in as many months for their Walk Tall advert, when they snapped up best Marketing Campaign of the Year.

The Credit Awards are the flagship awards for the credit and financial services industry. They're known as 'the Oscars of the industry', and recognise and celebrate innovation, best practice, and the hard work of individuals, business divisions, and pan-global conglomerates across the entire industry.

Big names from across the industry, including HSBC, Santander, Virgin Money, Tesco Bank, Alphera Financial Services and Transunion, were also in attendance and hoping to win awards too. This year they were hosted by comedian Jack Dee.


Managing Director of Moneybarn, David Shrimpton said, “Winning ‘Responsible Lender of the Year’ is a huge achievement for us. It truly shows our focus on delivering the best possible service and financial outcomes for our customers. It demonstrates how we are living our purpose of helping people on a path to a better everyday life. I genuinely couldn’t be prouder today. The award reflects the hard work, passion, and dedication of all our staff and our fantastic partners to drive the business forward. Thank you to everyone.”

"Our Marketing team really pulled out all the stops when they created the multi-award-winning Walk Tall campaign and this award is a testament to their brilliance." - Fiona Anderson, Managing Director, Cards
