Lend expands partner panel
Small-business lending platform Lend has expanded its panel of partners, as the fintech looks to help brokers service the needs of Australian SMEs.
Lend Capital, a new fintech platform that automates the process of matching the funding needs of brokers’ SME clients with lenders, has welcomed several new partners to its panel in recent weeks.
With 18 lenders now on panel and a further seven onboarding, the SME platform has been bringing on more lenders to help offer brokers’ SME clients with more support during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Speaking to The Adviser about the expansion, Lend’s head of third party, Donelle Brook, told The Adviser: “We are expanding our lender panel to bring greater product diversity and choice for brokers and their clients.
“As COVID-19 has unfolded, lender appetites have also changed. Expanding our panel allows brokers to have a greater ability at getting the funding their client needs,” she said, adding: “COVID-19 loans might not be the best solution for everyone, so having a panel where we cover these stimulus packages, but also a range of other options, is exciting.”
The head of third party continued: “What we are really excited about is the support and faith in the Australian economy and SMEs to bounce back, and that lenders are wanting to partner with us so that we can continue to offer choice and solutions directly to our SME and broker family.”
