TF Bank renames business segments

TF Bank has decided to rename its two business segments within lending. As of 13 April, Sales Finance will be renamed Ecommerce Solutions and Direct to Consumer will be renamed Consumer Lending.

The Ecommerce Solutions segment (formerly Sales Finance) offers payment solutions to merchants, both ecommerce and retail, for handling consumer payments. As of 1 January 2017, the segment also includes credit cards.

– Ecommerce Solutions is a better reflection of the segment than Sales Finance. We do not offer traditional sales finance in the stores via card infrastructure. Instead, we offer digital ecommerce solutions for retailers and in-store. We focus heavily on technical solutions that are flexible and easy for both merchants and customers, says Mikael Johansson, Head of the Ecommerce Solutions segment.

In the Consumer Lending segment (formerly Direct to Consumer), TF Bank offers unsecured consumer loans to creditworthy individuals.

– Consumer Lending provides a more accurate description of the segment than Direct to Consumer. The name gives a better indication of what we actually offer, both to new and existing customers as well as investors, says Espen Johannesen, Head of the Consumer Lending segment.
