About Us


Vanquis Banking group has a rich history dating back to 1880. The company was founded in Bradford by Joshua Kelley Waddilove as The Provident Clothing and Supply Company to help people access finance and goods who couldn't from traditional lenders. Today, Vanquis Banking Group is a FTSE All Share company listed on the London Stock Exchange with around 1.7 million customers and plays the same role in people lives today, as it did when it was founded.


Initially launched as a credit card pilot in 2002, Vanquis has evolved to offering credit cards and loans, and is now a key player in the credit card market for customers who are not well served by mainstream lenders.
