Valiant Finance launches their business loan matching tech platform featuring twenty-four lending partners

Valiant Finance, led by co-founders Alex Molloy and Ritchie Cotton, has launched into the Australian market, with its game-changing business loan matching technology.

Small businesses in Australia are struggling to access unbiased, quality commercial funding and strategic advice. With 97% of all Australian businesses classifying as small-to-medium, Valiant is tapping into a large market that is struggling to find finance on their terms.

“Fintech is providing new opportunities for startups to help consumers with finance related problems that established companies are unequipped to solve,” said Ritchie Cotton.

The Valiant platform is built around the needs of small business owners, and the user experience is designed to make a diverse set of twenty-four commercial lenders accessible to small business customers. Valiant’s platform empowers customers with transparency and choice, ensuring that they are able to find a loan that suits their needs and specific preferences.

“The big priority for us was trying to move quickly to get something to market that we could begin serving customers with so that we could improve and optimise the platform as well as understand where the pain points are in a customer’s experience,” Molloy said.

About the Valiant platform

Valiant Finance is a business loan marketplace that matches borrowers to lenders, with the aim of removing the barriers that prevent Australia’s small-to-medium enterprises from scaling and growing. Using a proprietary algorithm that identifies the best loan product for the customer, the platform improves the experience for the business owner and saves the lender time by pre-vetting the borrower.

Products available through the Valiant Finance platform include:

  • Unsecured business loans;
  • Secured term loans;
  • Overdrafts;
  • Line of credit;
  • Equipment finance;
  • Debtor financing;
  • Merchant cash advances; and
  • Business credit cards.
