Credit comparison site sees successful first year

Macclesfield-based MoneyGuru.com is celebrating a successful first year which saw its turnover top £1.6m.

The credit comparison site launched last September offering consumers choice from a range of loan and credit products across the market. One year on the site has now had more than a million visitors and is challenging some of its larger competitors.

Owned by a specialist consumer credit fintech group, MoneyGuru.com focuses on personal loans, credit cards, mortgages and Credit reports in the comparison space.

MoneyGuru.com is part of Quint Group, a fintech businesses which was this year recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

Greg Cox, founder of MoneyGuru.com and chief executive and co-founder of Quint, said: “What sets MoneyGuru.com apart from our competitors is our technology and mobile experience alongside the long standing relationships with providers across the Group. We have a number of exciting developments in the pipeline which will improve our user experience and make the site even easier to use in the future.

“Since the UK site launched last year, we have already had over 1 million visitors and with another national TV campaign planned for next year we are predicting significant further growth. We’ve had some great feedback from consumers about our quirky brand character – ‘the Money Guru’ – he is very engaging and is all about helping people to make enlightened financial decisions.

“While we are pleased with our first year of trading, we believe our continuing commitment to developing new technology will keep us at the forefront of the market. Moving forward our aim is to build on the early success of MoneyGuru.com and we feel we have the brand and platform to become the UK’s leading credit comparison site.”
