Valiant Finance has joined forces with rate comparison website Finder in a move designed to provide its brokers and small business customers with greater access to loan information.
Valiant noted that the partnership would enable small businesses to use Finder’s comparison services, along with Valiant’s loan matching technology, to find a financial product that suits their business.
“Finder is thrilled to have Valiant Finance as a new partner in the business lending vertical,” co-founder and director of Finder Frank Restuccia said.
“Valiant’s commitment to serving business owners aligns with Finder’s objective to bring great offers to our users. We do this by giving them choices, including broker and direct comparison options, to help them make their best decision.
“We’ve seen huge growth in the alternative finance industry and are excited to increase our support to business owners from enquiry through to settlement.”
Valiant’s head of third-party distribution, Andrew Lim, added that the partnership could help service unmet demand.
“It’s fantastic to see the uptake from brokers and other referral partners,” Mr Lim said.
“What we’re hearing from the industry is that brokers and customers need a trusted partner to help them with their business and commercial transactions, which they otherwise don’t have the capacity or capability to explore in a scalable way.
“Valiant’s smart MatchFit algorithm learns from each individual transaction, and as a result, we have become that trusted platform. We are able to deliver product-agnostic advice to the broker or customer, which brings the mandates of Finder and Valiant into alignment.”
