Who We Are

We are a leading provider of specialist funding solutions to professional service firms and their clients. With a proven track record in delivering pragmatic funding solutions, we’ve grown from a niche operator servicing a handful of specialist law firms to where we are today; providing fit-for-purpose funding that helps professional service firms grow, transform and prosper.

We are a private, independent, and wholly Australian-owned company, based in Brisbane and operating nationally.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is providing peace of mind so you can build your business and prosper. Founded in 2013, we had a simple belief – that for some areas of specialist financing, there had to be a better way to get funding than through traditional channels. As our model has evolved to continue helping our clients’ grow, that belief remains.

We’ve provided firms with working capital, processed thousands of transactions on their behalf, paid hundreds of suppliers. By taking care of your working capital and cash flow, we help you and your clients stay focused on doing the work that matters.
