History[edit]

In 1912, OneMain Financial was founded as Commercial Credit in Baltimore, Maryland to provide working capital to manufacturers and building contractors. After several acquisitions, the company became a part of Citicorp in 1998 and in 2011 the name was changed to OneMain Financial.

In 1920, Interstate Finance Corporation was founded in Evansville, Indiana to underwrite sales of Inland Motor Truck vehicles. After several acquisitions, the company became a part of AIG Group in 2001 and was later purchased by Fortress Investment Group in 2010. In 2011, the name was changed to Springleaf Financial Services, and in 2015, the company took the OneMain Financial name after the acquisition of OneMain from Citi.[3]

In order to complete the acquisition of OneMain, the United States Department of Justice required the company to sell 127 branches and certain related assets to Lendmark Financial Services, LLC.[4] The sale was completed in May 2016. The brand migration from Springleaf Financial to OneMain Financial was completed in October 2016.
