Our Mission and Vision
Our vision is to empower private investors to earn better rates of interest by meeting the finance needs of growing businesses.
Our mission is:
(1) Help businesses grow via a trusted, collaborative funding platform
(2) Provide the Investor community with more choices of attractive yields
Being involved in the financial sector for more than a decade, we realised that capital and opportunities gravitate towards the “big boys” and become motivated to address the structural impediments towards entrepreneurship, focusing on SMEs.
We have taken the lead to champion a specific process innovation that has taken root in many parts of the world – peer-to-peer lending. We feel that this new route of capital allocation will make the financial system more inclusive and participative for the benefit of the society at large.
