Fintech SME lender joins panel

by Rebecca Pike03 Sep 2018

A specialist lender to small and medium businesses (SME) has announced it has joined the lending panel of another aggregator.

GetCapital has been appointed to the lending panel of leading aggregator PLAN Australia, which began on 20 August.

This follows the announcement in June that the lender would be joining FAST’s panel.

PLAN has more than 1,650 members and a total loan book value close to $70 billion. The aggregator’s commercial and asset finance volumes reached $990million in the six months to March 2018.

The partnership will see GetCapital’s multi-product offering of business loans, equipment finance and trade finance become available on PLAN’s extensive broker network across Australia.

CEO of GetCapital, Jamie Osborn, said, “We welcome the opportunity to work with PLAN as part of our commitment to support the growth of Australian SMEs.

“We look forward to delivering real value to PLAN’s experienced brokers, their customers and their businesses”.  

PLAN has one of the largest partnership manager (PM) workforces in Australia, with PMs across all states providing personalised support and business advice.

They work with established financial planners, accountants and property business owners to find a sustainable way of delivering both end-to-end advice and lending services. 

Anja Pannek, CEO of PLAN Australia, said, “We are delighted to partner with GetCapital and have them join our panel.

“This will further strengthen our commercial and asset finance options for our brokers and their customers.”

GetCapital prides itself in approving loans in less than 24 hours, thanks to its technology and range of finance solutions.

This complements PLAN’s broker support offering through technology, professional and business development, based on its four C’s: customer first, compliance focused, commercially oriented, and committed to the industry.
