The history of Norton Finance
Norton Finance was founded in 1974, with a mission to help local customers get the loans they needed. The Stringer family business started in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, as an insurance brokerage – and we’re still based there today.
Originally founded as an insurance brokerage, Norton Finance has spent the past 40 years expanding our offering to our customers, branching out into a number of different types of finance. In 1987, we formed the home lending company Norton Home Loans, which has been helping customers gain access to finance for more than 30 years. This sits alongside Norton Finance & Mortgages, our brokerage arm, which helps our customers find the right finance option for their own situation.
Our expertise in the industry has also helped us to negotiate some of the most difficult financial climates over the years. By adapting how we work and being committed to helping get the sector back on track, we were able to get through the financial crisis in 2008.
Over the past 40 years, our business has gone from strength to strength, identifying and responding to the needs of customers. Today, we have over 150 colleagues.
We have two branches which work closely together – and our uniquely joined-up approach means we can find the right finance solution for every customer.
- Norton Finance & Mortgages – Our brokerage, which finds customers the perfect loan based on their unique situation and repayment plan
- Norton Home Loans – Our lending arm, helping customers find the right mortgages and other secured loans for them
With 40 years’ experience in the financial market, we know the specifics of every type of loan. Our customers are in safe hands with our experts, who go out of their way to make sure they get the best and fairest deal for their needs.
By offering a dedicated service that covers the whole loans process – from the first inquiry right through to the final payment – we’re proud of being able to support our customers for as long as they need it.
