Loan firm Springleaf Financial changing name to OneMain


Evansville-based Springleaf Financial Services is changing its name to OneMain Financial, a move that will affect more than a dozen consumer loan branches in the Indianapolis area, the company said Thursday.

The name change will take effect Oct. 1.

Springleaf acquired Baltimore-based OneMain in March 2015, more than doubling the size of the consumer-loan company.

The combined company has 1,800 branches in 44 states, including more than 75 in Indiana.

Springleaf lists seven branches in Indianapolis and single branches in Anderson, Plainfield, Shelbyville, Avon, Martinsville, Greenwood and Noblesville that will change their name to OneMain. Six branches in the Indianapolis area already carry the OneMain name.

The company said it has more than 2.2 million customers nationwide who have received auto and personal loans, including $10 billion in loans in 2015.

Springleaf was known as American General Finance from 1982 to 2010 and Interstate Finance Corp. from its founding in 1920 until 1982.
