The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the independent regulator of financial services. Use this information to decide if our services are right for you.

S.G. Petch Limited is an appointed representative of ITC Compliance Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) (their registration number is 313486). Permitted activities include advising on and arranging general insurance contracts as an intermediary and acting as a credit broker not a lender.

Finance

Acting as a credit broker we can introduce you to a selected group of lenders / brokers (see below) who may be able to help you finance your purchase. This group of lenders / brokers provides us with a range of products which may be suitable for your purchase. We will explain the key features of those products to you.

- FCA Automotive Services Limited - N.I.I.B. Group Limited - Leasys (UK) Limited - Evolution Funding Limited - Lex Autolease Limited - Santander Consumer (UK) plc - Black Horse Limited - Startline Motor Finance Limited

Unless we consider it to be inappropriate given your personal circumstances, our approach is to introduce you first to the lender associated with the vehicle manufacturer who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account interest rates, residual valuations (where applicable) and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to other lenders on our panel. The lender we introduce you to and available rates will depend upon a number of factors including: the vehicle, your personal circumstances and the likelihood of a lender to accept an application based on information provided.

Lenders may pay a commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions; some lenders may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned.

We do not charge you a fee for our services. Whichever lender we introduce you to, we will typically receive commission from them based on either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow.

All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18s or over, Guarantees may be required.
