Big Banks Vs Fintech Lenders

One of the main reasons why Fintech (Financial Technology) lenders are winning the hearts of
business owners is their ability to offer a service that is quick, easy and without security.

Traditional lenders such as banks require pages of paperwork, they require substantial loan sizes,
they need security in the form of a home and their process often take over several months. This is
not conducive for business owners that often need to seize opportunities quickly.


  • 4-12 Weeks approval
  • Pages of paperwork and financials required
  • Security required
  • Substantial loan size
  • Low rates
  • No ATO Debt accepted
  • No defaults or adverse


  • Same day approval
  • Simple online form & bank statements
  • No security required
  • Minimum $10K
  • Rates are competitive to banks (based on risk)
  • ATO debt still acceptable
  • Defaults and adverse acceptable

Timing and speed are everything in today’s world of business. Historically, businesses would have to pass on opportunities such as new contracts or acquisition because they knew they would not get the finance from their bank on time. This became a barrier for growth for many business owners. Alternative lenders recognised this pain point and leveraged technology to support small to medium sized businesses.
