Barclays cuts sub-prime loan products

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

The UK's fourth largest bank will stop selling new loans through its sub-prime loans unit and plans to cut around 300 jobs, Bloomberg reported overnight.

Neil Radley, managing director of Barclays’ subprime unit FirstPlus, said the decision was made due to a drop in customer demand for the lender’s sub-prime products.

``In the past year we have tried a whole range of activities to develop our business but the market demand simply isn't strong enough,'' he said.
