On today's Vox Markets Podcast: Non-Standard Finance, Highlands Natural Resources and Dev Clever Holdings

Peter Reynolds, Director of IR and Communications at Non-Standard Finance (NSF) FOLLOW talks through some of the highlights from their half year results to 30th June.

Non-Standard Finance plc is listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange (ticker: NSF) and was established in 2014 to acquire and grow businesses in the UK's non-standard consumer finance sector. Under the direction of its highly experienced main board, the Company has acquired a sustainable group of businesses offering credit to the c.10-12 million UK adults who are not served by (or choose not to use) mainstream financial institutions. Its three business divisions are: unsecured branch-based lending, guarantor loans and home credit. Each division is fully authorised by the FCA and has benefited from significant investment in branch expansion, recruitment, training and new IT infrastructure and systems. These investments have supported the delivery of improved customer outcomes together with growing financial returns for shareholders.

Nick Tulloch, Finance Director of Highlands Natural Resources (HNR) FOLLOW explains their decision to divert all of Highlands' discretionary expenditure to Zoetic, their CBD brand.

Highlands Natural Resources’ strategy is to develop a portfolio of projects whereby approximately 80% of projects generate secure and sustainable revenue while the other projects demonstrate the potential for exciting capital appreciation. This strategic objective is well advanced and we are generating revenue.
