With the establishment of the Common Securitization Fund (FCT), Younited Credit collects money from professional investors (companies, insurers, foundations, pension funds). The funds collected are then used to grant consumer loans to borrowers. We come back to the different approvals necessary for Younited Credit in order to grant loans on the one hand and pay lenders on the other. Thus, from its launch, Younited Credit was approved in France as a Credit Institution and Investment Services Provider by the ACPR and the AMF. Charles explains how the company has become a key European player in consumer credit with EUR 2,7 billion in loans and payments taken out.
