Benefits of Non-Bank Lenders

Non-bank lenders are institutions that are not a bank, credit union or building society. Non-bank lenders offer loans to consumers, with each institution varying in rates and features. There are some benefits of obtaining an unsecured business loan with a non-bank lender rather than a bank:

Rates and Fees

Because non-bank lenders are privately owned institutions, they are able alter their rates and fees to stay competitive against banks and other non-bank lenders.

Easier and Faster Application

Banks require a more extensive set of financial documents to be submitted with loan applications whereas non-bank lenders will not. This means that unsecured business loan applications with non-non-bank lenders are streamlined and you can receive funding faster.

More Flexible Criteria

Non-bank lenders will generally have more flexible criteria when it comes to requirements for unsecured business loan applications. This can include requirements such as time in business, minimum business revenue and minimum business credit score. Customer service and customer support can also be an advantage of non-bank lenders.
