Valiant Finance announces major nation-wide partnership with wealth management experts, Yellow Brick Road

Valiant has partnered with the Yellow Brick Road Group (comprised of Yellow Brick Road and Vow Financial), as announced at the Commercial Conference held today at The Sheraton Mirage, Gold Coast.

The deal grants YBR exclusive partner access to the Valiant small business loans marketplace, with a view to addressing YBR’s concerns around sourcing, comparing and securing funding for small businesses that are not serviced by traditional lenders.

“The challenge for brokers is that serving customers in the short term funding space takes an unbalanced amount of time - and for hard-to-fund customers, it is often difficult to find a market winning solution,” said Alex Molloy, Cofounder and CEO, Valiant Finance.

“With the Valiant platform, Vow brokers can now see in minutes whether their clients would be eligible for a wide range of short-term secured and unsecured loans. The speed and efficiency of the marketplace should prove an immediate fit for the brokers looking for working capital, equipment finance and debtor finance solutions.”

Yellow Brick Road is a full service wealth management company, offering products and services across home loans, financial planning, insurance, superannuation and investments, as well as boasting a network of local wealth managers across Australia. Valiant Finance now has 35 lenders on the platform, allowing plenty of choice and providing a number of options for brokers and advisers working to satisfy complex commercial loan requirements.

“At Vow, we are always looking to provide our network with the most cutting-edge products and services and this partnership is a natural fit for the business. Valiant has an innovative platform that does not exist in the market right now,” said Tim Brown, CEO of Yellow Brick Road Group.

“Everybody wins when there is a strong match between a borrower and a lender. The platform will save time for Vow finance brokers and their clients, as well as minimising the risk and anxiety of loan rejection.”
