NewDay Funding 2019-2: 19 September 2019
The transaction is collateralised by a pool of UK co-branded credit card, store card and instalment credit receivables via NewDay Ltd. NewDay acquired the portfolio in 2013 from Santander UK plc, from which it also took ownership of the related origination and servicing platform. With this acquisition NewDay became one of the largest specialist credit card companies in the UK, where it is also active in the near-prime credit card market. At present there are four active retailer agreements, namely Debenhams, House of Fraser, Arcadia Group and Laura Ashley, but there are also historical receivables in the pool from DFS, ASDA, Comet and others.
