Cabot Square Capital has substantially increased its equity investment in Blue Motor Finance (Blue). This further round of investment follows the announcement in December of a new GBP300 million financing facility with a leading international bank and provides Blue with sufficient funding to deliver beyond its 2021 plans.

Blue continues to deliver very attractive investment opportunities characterised by loan portfolios with relatively low average loan sizes, low term lengths, diversity in originations and customer base, good security and predictable low default rates. Blue’s long term consistency and prudency in credit risk policy has supported this investment and their ongoing performance.

Tiku Patel, CEO of Blue Motor Finance, says: “In these challenging times, we are delighted that Cabot is willing to further invest in our business. Through the crisis, we have shown our ability to treat customers fairly, maintain good operational capability and carefully manage credit risk. Cabot continues to be a great partner for Blue and we are delighted in their confidence as we grow our business for the future.”

Stuart Williams, CFO of Blue Motor Finance, says: “This further investment clearly supports and values our approach in bringing together technology, data and analytics to build a flexible, growing and profitable business platform as we look to the longer term.”
