“Together with economic growth, rising employment and increased consumer confidence, low interest rates – particularly for NI consumers – have returned growth and momentum to the unsecured personal loans market. However, lingering uncertainties around the eventual impact of Brexit, in particular, have resulted in some consumers postponing plans to borrow for the time being."
– Brian O’Connor, Senior Consumer Analyst
