Essentially the SIA application/renewal process is a very expensive form of DBS with a bit of MHA thrown in.
However many security employers use the British Standards vetting standard BS7858 which does include a credit check. a five year address and employment check.
This is only done for a new employee and if the contract moves from one contractor to another the existing details are transferred over (TUPE) to the new contractor.
BS7858 is also used in other roles such as financial services contact centre workers.
Even in the worst case of applying for a new job or your current employer becoming aware of you IVA (there is no requirement in BS7858 to inform your employer) the presence of an IVA would not mean you being automatically binned. It is (if you read the guidance) a management decision, and if a manager is satisfied that you, or the role you are in present no risk or a manageable risk then no worries.
Hope this helps.
PS (soapbox) there is no researched (or even anecdotal) evidence that people with financial problems are more likely to commit crime or be untrustworthy.
