Press coverage

“Lachlan Heussler, Managing Director of Spotcap Australia, says banks typically want security, such as a borrower’s home, but fintech lenders are keen to write unsecured loans and make decisions within 24 hours.”

“Spotcap will differentiate itself by offering a free line of credit for up to three months. As soon as the company starts drawing on the loan, it becomes a “vanilla amortising” business loan that has to be paid back within six months.”

“Spotcap’s better-than-expected launch has driven the company to more than double its maximum loan size to $250,000 for up to 12 months. The company has also lent to businesses from all states and territories, mostly to those in the retail and services sectors.”
