By Staff Writer January 15, 2023

Westlake Portfolio Management, a loan servicer located in Los Angeles, has entered into a servicing partnership with Nicholas Financial, an auto and consumer loan finance company based in Clearwater, Fla.

Beginning Dec. 1, 2022, Westlake began providing servicing operations for Nicholas Financial’s existing portfolio, which includes 24,000 active and charge-off loans with a total principal balance of approximately $165 million. WPM will also handle the servicing for Nicholas Financial’s new loan originations.

“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Nicholas Financial,” said Todd Laruffa, vice president of Westlake Portfolio Management. “Nicholas has an excellent reputation in the industry and a very experienced and talented management team. As their servicing partner, we can offer our scale and expertise which will allow Nicholas to optimize the productivity and performance.”

As part of Nicholas Financial’s ongoing restructuring plan, the goal of the partnership with WPM is to revamp its operational structure and alleviate additional expenditures by utilizing Westlake Portfolio Management’s technology, scale, and experience.

“When reaching this decision, Westlake was the clear choice to begin this business venture with, and we are looking forward to this future partnership,” said Mike Rost, CEO of Nicholas Financial.
