SIMPLY A BETTER WAY...

In Australia banks still dominate the consumer credit market. Banks are able to earn above average returns via their personal lending businesses by capturing the difference between their cost of funds, currently similar to the term deposit rates and the average consumer loan interest rate, currently above 15% per annum.

With the emergence of the internet and online credit assessment services, peer-to-peer lenders have emerged in both the US (like LendingClub) and in the UK (like Zopa). SocietyOne is bringing the revolutionary potential of peer-to-peer lending to Australia.

Peer-to-peer lending from SocietyOne is different from the approach used by a traditional bank to underwrite and manage personal loans:


  • _ We are targeting credit worthy borrowers looking to reduce their cost of funds.
  • _ We operate exclusively through online acquisition channels, loan application processes and proprietary ClearMatch™ technology that delivers lower costs
  • _ Our SocietyOne P2P Lending Trust holds the loan assets for the investors and has been structured as a trust to help protect the beneficial interests of investors in the Fund.
  • _ By sharing our lower operating cost advantage and by targeting borrowers with good credit history and strong capacity to repay their loans we are able to offer qualifying borrowers cheaper loans and investors access to a portfolio of low-risk loans.
