About Swift Sterling Loans (Closed = Further Details to Follow Soon)
Swift Sterling was brought to market in 2010 by the controversial Malta-based Northway Financial Ltd. This was Northway’s 2nd local project as they had got under way with Pounds Till Payday way back in 2006. PTP is no longer lending having recently been passed on for use by a broker (RU Media UK). There had been problems with the owner Stateside regarding licensing and this was also the case in the UK. This is likely why they had to sell the business. For some time, the sites were down, but it was later announced that MMP Financial would acquire in November 2015, with trading recommencing in December. MMP has done a good job since taking over.
Swift’s popularity isn’t however close to their peak years between 2012 and 2013. The product itself hasn’t changed considerably over the years. There was originally a monthly-only term, but you can now pick between 1 and 5 months. The opening hours have tended to change every so often. It is impressive to see such late closings on Saturdays (11.30pm) and Sundays (10.30pm). It is surprising that this firm has so little feedback on the major review portals. On both Reviews.co.uk and Trustpilot they had less than 10 reviews posted on each. More would be expected from a lender that was historically one of the top lenders outside the top 5.

Rivals & Similar Lenders Like Swift Sterling
In our most recent comparison checks, Swift’s monthly rank was #10 and instalment rank was #12. This shows that they have plenty of ground to make up. Both CashFloat and Ferratum were closely matched on traffic performance. Mr Lender ranked just ahead. They would be a good alternative as they charged less money and have more review feedback. There aren’t any rivals that provide the same 1 to 5 month range. When a more wider set of repayments is required the likes of MyJar, Peachy and Satsuma can deliver. This isn’t the only popular established company that has been struggling for traffic of late. Swift’s popularity was improved upon other well known firms like Fernovo and WizzCash.
