Charter Court Financial Services Limited (CCFS), the owner of Charter Savings Bank, has been named as one of the UK’s most inspiring companies in an influential report which showcases the country’s most dynamic businesses.
The Wolverhampton-based financial services company has been included in the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2017 report.
The report features small and medium-sized companies from more than 40 sectors which have demonstrated positive growth in revenue and strong performance in their areas of expertise.
Founded in 2008, it is the first time CCFS has been included in the report, and comes just months after it was ranked, for the second year running, in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. CCFS was named the third best company to work for in 2017, after featuring tenth on the list in 2016.
CCFS employs more than 450 people. It offers savings products which regularly feature at the top of the best buy tables, and is a top 20 UK mortgage lender.
Ian Lonergan, CEO of CCFS, commented: “We’re delighted to be named one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2017.
“To achieve recognition in such a prestigious publication less than 10 years after the company was founded is testament to the hard work and dedication everyone who works for the business has put in.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive of the London Stock Exchange Group, highlighted CCFS as an example of how London’s dominance is being challenged by the West Midlands and other regions.
“CCFS is a successful specialist bank that is growing rapidly and has created more than 450 jobs in a sector which is traditionally associated with the Square Mile in the City of London,” he said.
