New Lenders on the Platform Finance Panel

We are very excited to announce that seven new lenders are joining Platform Finance’s already diverse panel, as part of our strategy to provide our broker network with a larger range of new finance solutions for your clients.

Partnering with such a great range of lenders and diversifying our product and service offering ensures you can cater to a wide variety of client needs and enables you to achieve your goals.

Asset finance obviously isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation. Businesses have different requirements depending on their industry and customers, and we understand these needs can change as businesses grow or change structure. It’s vital that we partner with lenders who offer a wide range of products and services to suit these ever-changing needs. This enables us to support you in providing many lending options and the highest level of customer service, and thus help you achieve better outcomes.

Whether it’s a consumer, SME or larger organisation needing car finance, equipment finance, fit-out finance, trade finance, lines of credit or flexible business loan offerings, we have specialist lenders on our panel that can provide a solution. For brokers, having this expanded offering enables you to further strengthen your relationship with your clients and to reach new clients.

We understand brokers are now playing a greater role in assisting businesses – small to large – in securing asset finance and working capital. And with asset finance also impacted by tighter lending standards, having a wider range of options is crucial. That’s why we welcome our new lenders to our panel:

  • Branded Financial Services (BFS): offers a range of tailored finance solutions for commercial customers and consumers purchasing motor vehicles
  • OnDeck: a small business loan specialist
  • Society One: offers personal loans for both business and private use
  • ScotPac: offers a range of finance solutions to SMEs
  • Bigstone: offers commercial asset finance loans
  • VWFS: offers a variety of fleet, finance and novated leasing products
  • Judo Capital: a new bank aimed at supporting Australian businesses with various products

Diversification isn’t just important for our broker network, it’s also integral for our lenders, as highlighted by Tony Farnell, Business Development Manager with BFS.

“BFS has a vision to grow and diversify its portfolio which has to date been exclusively servicing the franchise motor dealer market,” he told Platform Finance. “Whilst looking for a new partner and business channel to grow with, it was quickly evident Platform Finance was a good fit for our business model.

“We were very impressed by our discussions with the Platform executive team and their willingness to grow a new partnership at a sustainable rate geared for the long term, which worked for us. The partnership with Platform Finance gives our business access to a diverse market and reputable network, as well as the comfort of their commitment to and focus on regulatory compliance.  BFS looks forward to working with Platform Finance and its partners in forming long term mutually beneficial relationships.”

Building mutually beneficial relationships for the long term is at the core of what we do, and we are looking forward to working with our new lenders to achieve this.
