Close Brothers has now completed the planned acquisition of Bluestone Motor Finance (Ireland) DAC, as announced on September 20th 2023.


Bluestone has established itself as a fast-growing fintech business operating in the motor finance sector across the Republic of Ireland since entering the market in 2014. With a growing portfolio of motor retailers and broker intermediaries, Bluestone has won multiple awards for its digital expertise. It has also proved to be a massive hit with its many customers, earning itself an ‘excellent’ 4.8/5 rating on Trustpilot.


Close Brothers Motor Finance has over a decade of experience in the Irish market, having helped over 130,000 customers finance vehicles. The business is committed to the Irish motor market and acquired Bluestone Motor Finance because it was a business that not only shares Close Brothers’ values, but also its high standards of service for dealer partners and customers.
