Why choose us

Our Story

Founded in February 2015 by Steven Sher and Gavin Solsky, we believe our entrepreneurial mindset has helped us bring a different perspective to the Australian private credit market and deliver exceptional results for our clients (both borrowers and investors).
We recognised that post the GFC, regulation on banks would mean borrowers would need to look for more flexible, alternative funding sources. At the same time, we saw that investors were looking for greater diversification opportunities and to deploy capital outside of conventional asset classes.
We saw an opportunity to bring together our investment and entrepreneurial backgrounds to create a private credit business that could help transform businesses in ways that traditional lending cannot. Private credit can support business owners to grow without needing to deal with the bureaucracy and constraints of large banks and avoid the need for business builders and owners to raise very expensive equity capital if bank funding is not possible.
We offer our borrower clients three core innovative financing solutions: Asset Backed Finance, Real Estate and Strategic Capital. Each solution seeks to arm business owners with the power to meet their individual funding requirements no matter the stage of the business evolution they find themselves in.

What Sets Us Apart

We are credit providers who think like business owners. We work with our borrower clients to see through complexity, to understand their specific requirements and to provide them with fast and flexible financing solutions that enable them to reach new heights and achieve their goals. We have a vested interest in seeing them be successful.
