SocietyOne is Australia’s first and leading marketplace lender

We're on a mission to help our borrowers and investors achieve their goals, and provide both with a better deal.

Finding investors who are looking to get great returns and are proud that their investments are supporting real people, then through our digital lending platform, we help high quality borrowers who are looking to get a better and fairer deal than they’d get from the big banks.

Since our beginning in 2012, we’ve matched investors’ funds with over 35,000 customers and we continue to grow, recently passing $1 billion in lending in January 2021.

With the support of strong shareholders we’ve gone from strength to strength, evolving from a small online start-up to an industry leading scale-up.

We continue to innovate and break barriers to deliver on our mission:
“To provide a better deal for borrowers and investors… one brilliant lending moment at a time.”

They love how easy it is to apply (we’re 100% online) and getting a quote doesn’t affect their credit score. The process is so simple and quick…our customer team is fantastic too!
