    Lender PCF to withdraw from UK market after rescue fails

    (Reuters) -PCF Group is pulling out of Britain's banking market and plans to cancel its share listing on AIM, after it failed to raise capital or secure strategic options to strengthen its consumer and corporate lending business, the lender said. Shares in PCF fell by around 62% to 0.4 pence in early trade following the news on Wednesday, six weeks after Castle Trust Capital withdrew its intention to make an offer for PCF. PCF's decision to wind up its lending business underscores the challenges facing small banks in Britain, where the costs of regulation and doing business have surged and competition from dominant rivals, including Lloyds Banking Group, NatWest and HSBC, has intensified.
