In response to 4062, although that was a long time ago, I can assure you that I would never had made such a comment. Metro is a rubbish bank with appalling metrics in all respects. I was short from about 3000p but via a fund, so I had no control over exit price. If you are trying to imply that I was bullish in some respect, hardly, but I may have bought a few to hedge half the position in the fund (by memory). I deal in the big picture, not day-to-day movements (in general) - that's for spivs.

Wise move. Best of luck but I don't think you will need it. I'm also in now and if they go down a bit more I will buy more, it's a case of waiting. As sure as night follows day these shares are well under value and will take off.

I can see what you're saying, but at the end of the day the City know and being a UK company, comparing the difference in the share price doesn't make sense.

Years ago Provident expanded into Poland and South Africa. Provident split the company and IPF was born. Provident UK and ROI. IPF is international. IPF have since expanded into other countries. IPF is still known today in Poland as Provident. It's a UK company on the LSE.

The City is playing a bloody silly game here. The share price is ridiculously low. Compare the price to IPF and you will see the stupid difference. Poland has one of the highest COVID 19 outbreaks and the government has imposed interest limitations on new loans until June, after being extended from March, and this is expected to be extended again to the end of the year. Plus they had to refinance their loans to stop defaulting on their existing loans. We are coming out of lockdown and yet IPF shares are more solid than Provident. The City has gone completely mad.

cheers jimbob Thanks for explaining, now I understand the significance of it all. A so called mis selling style scenario. I wish companies like PFG would be more diligent on such matters and have some large print telling customers, make sure you can afford to pay us back. No doubt the sales force responsible got their commissions and now shareholders are left taking the heat.

If you look at the dates of these complaints they are all within COVID 19. I don't blame the management at all, as their hands were tied, having to adhere to the government lockdown and FCA regulations. Basically they were shafted with no means of getting out of it. Now, if they couldn't collect and issue loans at customers homes, how many of these complaints are about breaking FCA regulations or are they service related complaints. The majority has to be service related. Everyone is getting on the bandwagon regarding mis-selling of loans issued prior to these dates and I know Provident introduced a policy that customers had to show documented evidence of affordability to get a loan. So how many of these claims are genuine. They off loaded over 300 thousand home credit customers 6 months prior to COVID 19 and have been in large amounts every 6 months for a few years. Knowing the company as well as I do, I doubt very much that liquidation even entered their heads. I think their intention has been, to milk off the good debit card customers and reduce the cash paying customers to the level that can either be sold on or do what they did with Provident Polska which is now IPF. Either way the company knows exactly what they are doing. When is the best time to break the news, now, under the umbrella of COVID 19 before the Annual Report. The directors are not stupid, far from it. The way they write their reports proves it. It's not what they tell you, it's what they leave out and have to read between the lines. There are a lots of grey areas in their report writing and people take it as black and white, big mistake.

It's not customers directly, it's claims management companies telling them they can claim their interest back if they borrowed the money but couldn't afford to. Another PPI Scandal. Which is why PFG are trying to ring fence the liabilities and cap them at £65m and if the FCA/Court won't play ball then close it down. It's a show of strength from the company.

If CCD is a separately capitalised entity then the group has no obligation to prop it up and can let it go to the wall drowning in customer complaints and leave an administrator to deal with it. Indeed the group board would be acting on their fiduciary duty if they did just that.

1Cutandrun, a decent summary and close to how I see it (though I have not been looking too keenly, to be honest).

"If the Scheme is not approved, it is likely that CCD will be placed into administration or liquidation. If this were to happen, CCD customers would not be expected to receive any redress payment. " So they know they are going to be responsible for redress but the business seeks to ring fence the liability ? If I read that correctly its as if they are putting a gun to the head of the Courts (?) that decide whether the scheme should go ahead. So they screw up and then tell the authorities just how much they are prepared to do and if they don't accept then liquidation? Given the seeming lack of remorse are they putting the credibility of the whole business in the firing line ?
