TORONTO, April 28 (Reuters) - Shares of Canadian alternative lender Home Capital Group rose in early trade on Friday after it said withdrawals from its high-interest savings accounts had continued at a slower rate on Thursday.
The company said its Home Trust unit had liquid assets of approximately C$750 million ($549.09 million) as at April 27, compared to C$1.3 billion at April 25. The company’s stock plunged earlier this week on news it had secured a high-interest credit line.
The stock was last up 3 percent at C$8.26.
