Stockport based Together named as one of the UK’s top companies in prestigious Sunday Times league.
Specialist lender, Together, has been included in The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 for 2016 – the elite league table ranking Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales.
The company, founded in 1974, has a current loan book of £1.8 billion, and recently announced record lending figures, with the total new lending for the year ended 30 June 2016 exceeding £1 billion for the first time.
Gary Beckett, group chief financial officer at Together said: “We are delighted to be included in the Top Track 250 which affirms our strong financial performance. Having recently announced record trading results, with profit before tax up 20.8% to £90.3 million for the year ended 30 June 2016, this accolade is a welcome recognition of all we have achieved.”
Together was also recently named the second most profitable company in the North West, in a report compiled by Manchester Metropolitan University.
Marc Goldberg, commercial chief executive officer commented: “We continue to build a strong platform for future growth. With a team of over 460 dedicated staff, we have made significant investment in governance, our infrastructure and our distribution channels and have extended and enhanced our product offering which includes bridging finance, auction finance, residential, buy-to-let and commercial mortgages and secured loans.”
In addition, Together has also just announced a further increase in its funding, as a result of a new successful £375m bond refinancing, which will support increased lending activity across the Group.
