FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (October 31, 2019): Los Angeles, CA

Westlake Technology Holdings reaches $10 Billion in assets under management milestone ahead of targeted 2022 goal. Westlake has set a new goal of $20 Billion in assets by 2026.

“In 2012 we set the ambitious goal of reaching $10 billion by 2022 and we were able to accomplish this milestone earlier than expected,” stated Ian Anderson, Westlake Technology Holdings Group President. “Our next step is to reach $20 billion in assets by 2026 using the same aggressive market growth our company has implemented.”

Westlake achieved its $10 Billion goal through strong organic growth with Independent and Franchise dealers, the creation of new companies and divisions (Westlake Flooring Services in 2012, Westlake Portfolio Management in 2018, and Westlake Capital Finance in 2019), and the acquisition of existing companies (Western Funding, Inc in 2013 and Credit Union Leasing of America in 2017).

Westlake Financial’s indirect lending portfolio represents approximately 70% of the portfolio with assets worth over $7.01 billion from more than 660,000 accounts. Westlake’s other subsidiaries make up the remaining 30%:
