About Amigo Loans

Amigo offer guarantor loans to those with bad credit, with ‘trust’ being at the heart of the company’s offering. Knowing what it’s like to be rejected by the banks, Amigo was founded to help those affected by computer credit scores, who instead could receive the help they need based on the relationships they have.

Established in 1999, the company is based on the core principles of ensuring every piece of communication is as simple as possible, that every interaction should leave the people involved feeling at ease, of being honest at all times and of taking responsibility.

Amigo’s values are reflected in its workplace culture - its offices are large open-plan spaces, where the directors sit among the wider business, with glass-walled meeting rooms symbolising transparency and honesty.

Based in Bournemouth, the company is led by Chief Executive Officer Glen Crawford.
