In terms of market share, statistics from 2009 showcase that DFG was the largest provider of payday loans in the United Kingdom...

...providing around 1/4 of the loans in the marketplace.

Their marketshare has grown since, with the company having acquired Month End Money (MEM), which includes the online payday loan brand PayDay UK, in 2011.

Similarly, they are among the market leaders in many other European countries where DFG operates, such as Finland, where Risicum has been the leading brand for years.

In addition to payday loans, the company's retail and online services have grown into a one-stop-shop concept.

For example, from the bricks-and-mortar stores in the United States, the firm's customers can also use...

  • Western Union money order and money transfer products,
  • electronic tax filing,
  • bill payment,
  • reloadable VISA brand debit cards and gift cards, and
  • prepaid local and long-distance phone services.

In selected stores, in addition, the services include currency exchange, gold purchasing, pawn lending, and tax preparation.
