Business Finance Broker Altona – Greater Choice

If you own a business in Altona, you may not have thought about using a Business Finance Broker to secure the finance you require.

Mortgage Brokers now write more than 66% of all Home Loans. However, when it comes to business or commercial equipment finance, most business owners still approach their existing Bank, or Lender.

While this may turn out well, there are a number of significant benefits of using a Business Finance Broker or Commercial Equipment Finance Broker including:

  • Far greater choice
  • More options and pathways to approval
  • Increased competition for your business
  • Improved pricing, terms, and conditions

For example, at The 500 Group we have access to over 40 Lenders. Our panel of Lenders includes all the major Banks, Specialist and Fintech Lenders.

This market access delivers better outcomes for our clients.

Why Use our Business Finance Broker Altona?

Unlike Home Finance, Business Finance can be complex. There are many different factors to be considered. Importantly, to avoid time consuming and expensive restructures, repayments need to be aligned to the business cash flow.

Different Lenders! Different Policies!

Business Finance has changed dramatically from decades past. It is a huge mistake to assume they are all the same!

Lenders have different policies and willingness to lend. For example, a Lender may be in growth mode for a time, then decide to consolidate.

Some Lenders also favour types of lending or target specific industries. As a result, they may be able to offer more flexible terms because they have a better understanding of the risk.

The key is to know which Lender will be suited to your business, and the type of funding you require.

How Does the Finance Broker Process Work?

This will largely be determined by the type of finance you require – however in broad terms, when you engage The 500 Group, the process we follow is:

  • Meeting(s) to understand your business and requirements
  • We provide you, and your Accountant, with a list of information required by Lenders
  • Prepare a Bankability Assessment
  • Initial feedback is provided
  • We then seek expressions of interest from Lenders most suited to your situation
  • You choose the preferred Lender
  • Next, we submit a Finance Proposal to the chosen Lender
  • Letter(s) of Offer is received
  • Fine-tuning and negotiation
  • We manage the process through to settlement
  • Ongoing support provided. We stay connected

The Bankability Assessment is a powerful process we follow for Business Finance and larger Commercial Equipment Finance.

Need Finance and Want Greater Choice?

Using a Finance Broker can open the door to far greater choice and different pathways to approval.

Choice introduces greater competition. Our experience is that competition invariably delivers better pricing, terms and conditions.

Importantly, using a Finance Broker changes the game and puts you in control.  (Which is as it should be!)
