Shawbrook announces agreement to acquire JBR Capital

We are pleased to share that Shawbrook has announced agreement to acquire the motor finance lender JBR Capital

Founded in 2015, JBR is dedicated to the premium vehicle finance market, with a focus on popular mass market luxury brands (e.g. Porsche, Land Rover etc.). The lender’s extensive knowledge of this specialist segment has facilitated over £1bn in originations since its launch, while driving attractive returns through its tech-driven underwriting approach and broad origination network.

The combination of Shawbrook’s established platform and resources with JBR’s extensive knowledge of the premium motor segment positions the business well to further develop its market share and enhance its product offering, delivering a truly unique offering to customers who value experience, flexibility, and certainty when securing finance for their luxury vehicles. 

For Shawbrook, the acquisition provides an entry into an attractive market through a proven business and team and more broadly expands Shawbrook's offering within the regulated motor finance sector, while also reinforcing its commitment to provide financial products in clearly defined specialist markets.

The two businesses also share an approach to providing specialist finance at scale, which combines technology and data with the expertise and judgement of their people. This ‘best of both’ model is key to delivering a seamless digital experience with swift decision making and certainty of funding.
