A finance partner is better than a loan facilitator

By Lorin M

Gone are the days of walking into a bank and putting both your business and yourself on the line in front of a preoccupied loan officer who could on one hand reject your application because they want to leave early, or accept it and tie you into a lifetime of debt and repayments under the threat of having the repo men come and take away everything if you miss a payment. 

Maybe those days weren’t quite as dramatic as that, but the fact of the matter is, bank loans come with a stigma and a bad feeling that stems from certain truths. Another fact is that they are no longer the only option, far from it.

The rise of online business funding   

An online business lender provides fast business funding through a simple online process. This ‘new way’ of getting a traditional business loan provides the fastest turnaround times and removes the need for long forms, paperwork, and yes, human interaction. 

But this way of acquiring valuable business funding isn’t just quick. It’s reliable, transparent and it’s always available. 

Where a loan facilitator is a person asking all the questions and keeping you at an arm’s length from your funds – they are a middleman – an online funding application is more like a supportive financial business partner who allows you to take the opportunities for growth that present themselves. 

Why is a finance partner better than a loan facilitator?   

With Bridgement as your finance partner there are a plethora of benefits over choosing the traditional bank loan application route:

  • Bridgement has one simple and transparent fee, making for easy-to-understand pricing and no complex fee structures.
  • Bridgement is flexible which means you get approved once, repay and re-use your business loan facility over and over as you need it.
  • Bridgement offers early settlement discounts so you can save on the outstanding interest when settling early.
  • Bridgement has dedicated support staff that are available every step of the way and focus on nothing other than business funding. Your business funding.
