Founded in 2005 by a management team led by Lee Schear to assist the short-term loan industry in providing an alternative lending product, NCP Finance pioneered the development of the CSO lending model. That’s helped short-term lenders enter new markets as CSOs.

Working with CSOs, NCP funds cash advances, title loans and installment loans for 6 of the largest 10 retail companies operating as a CSO. The company also offers employee loans and loan servicing functions for other lenders.
