    Launched in February 2014 Paragon Bank brings a fresh approach to banking

Welcome to The Paragon Group of Companies PLC - a specialist provider of finance for people.

At Paragon we have 30 years’ experience in providing specialist finance solutions to our customers and currently have £11.2 billion of loan assets under management.

Established in 1985, we began providing buy-to-let mortgage finance to landlords and today maintain our position as one of the leading, independent lenders in the UK. We also have extensive experience in loan servicing for third party clients, along with being a leading acquirer of assets and loan portfolios. Most recently, in 2014, we opened a banking subsidiary, Paragon Bank.

Paragon is a buy-to-let specialist lender to landlord customers offering products through our Paragon Mortgages and Mortgage Trust brands.

We were one of the first lenders to work with the UK’s private rented sector to develop the buy-to-let market and, in 2000, we became the only major UK mortgage lender to focus exclusively on buy-to-let products.

Our investment division, Idem Capital, is a leading UK consumer debt purchaser, acquiring loan portfolios, including first and second mortgages as well as unsecured assets.

We have over 25 years' experience in loan management and have serviced more than 1.5 million accounts. We also service loan portfolios for clients such as banks, private equity houses and specialist lenders.

Launched in February 2014, Paragon Bank is a new British bank built on good, simple, old-fashioned principles, offering savings products online and second mortgages and car finance via intermediaries.

Most recently Paragon Bank acquired Five Arrows Leasing Group, an SME asset finance business, and then in November, launched its latest product line – development finance.
