LoanDolphin fintech dives into banks’ mortgage market

After eight years at Westpac, self-described “ideas guy” Ranin Mendis finally put one into action. Today, a few months after co-founding LoanDolphin with Rod Dutra in February, Mednis says the start-up has distributed more than $50 million of mortgages on its online auction platform, building on the fintech sector’s assault on the $1.5 trillion home loan market. “The mortgage space is a massive market so if you can crack it then that’s obviously a great space to be in,” says Toby Heap, a founding partner at H2 Ventures, which has invested $100,000 in LoanDolphin. “What we really liked about LoanDolphin is they’re tackling it from a pretty fresh perspective.” LoanDolphin […]

Fintech platform helps brokers tackle business lending

A new online marketplace for business loans can help brokers tackle the growing commercial lending space. Launched in November 2015, Valiant Finance is a comparison website which compares and matches business loans, debtor finance and equipment finance to small businesses. But unlike other comparison websites which largely focus on home loans or personal lending, Valiant co-founder Alex Molloy said it fills a gap in the complex business lending space. “[Small businesses] can go to their business banker – who they might have had three of in the last two years – who will ask them if they have residential security and then say they can’t help them if they don’t,” […]

Celebrate innovation that puts the customer in charge

It’s no secret that the word innovation is in vogue. It’s not just that it’s one of our prime minister’s favourite words, it’s a trend across the English-speaking world. Use of the word has grown steadily since 1943, according to Google’s database of books published from 1800 to 2008. It was used almost twice as much in 2008 as 1969, the year humans first landed on the moon, and it’s a dead cert the past eight years have been no different. But using “innovation” as a mantra doesn’t make you more innovative. Many people feel that it’s become, or becoming, a meaningless catchphrase. It’s time to reclaim it. It’s a […]
