We continue to see strong demand for all our products”.
Pepper Money’s Treasurer Anthony Moir, said: “This was a positive result given market conditions and is again a testament to Pepper Money’s well-established investor relationships and exemplary track record of calling every term deal at the first opportunity and providing an attractive investment proposition for investors”.
