Business, financial and property services firm N1 Holdings has expanded its SME lending capacity and its AFSL authorisations.

The One Lending Fund lends capital to Australian small and medium-sized businesses located in Australia. The loans are secured by first or second ranking mortgages over property located in Australia, and in some cases, personal/directors’ guarantees will be obtained.

The group, which includes a mortgage brokerage and a lending arm, among other branches, has also expanded its existing Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) for its wholly owned subsidiary, N1 Venture Pty Ltd.


The expansion will enable the business to:

  • provide general financial product advice to its wholesale clients in relation to basic deposit products, interests in managed investment schemes (excluding investor-directed portfolio services [IDPS]) and securities; 
  • deal in a financial product by: issuing, applying for, acquiring, varying or disposing of a financial product in respect of interests in MIS (excluding IDPS); and applying for, acquiring, varying or disposing of a financial product on behalf of another person for basic deposit and payment products, foreign exchange contracts, general insurance products, interests in MIS (excluding IDPS), and securities; and 
  • provide custodial or depository services.

The group said the authorisations were a “significant milestone”, as it enables N1 Venture to provide trustee and custodial services to One Lending Fund (which had previously been undertaken by a third party).

N1H signalled that it also intends to further expand into the funds management and trustee services sector.

N1H’s executive chairman and CEO, Ren Wong, commented: “We are excited to be able to continue raising capital amid the pandemic. We are also confident that our lending and property experience will assist in growing our funds management and trustee services business. 

“N1H continues to evolve in the property lending business, and we are proud to be an innovative company bringing value to shareholders, other stakeholders and the market in general.”
