Introducing Nifty Loans
We are a neo-lender that is dedicated to providing easy finance for all Australians. We think finance should be accessible, not privileged. That’s why we offer easy finance to anyone who is looking to boost their funds. Whether you’re looking for a small investment into a side hustle or maybe an upgrade to your bathroom; we can provide the finance. Our loan process is 100% online and has zero paperwork! And more good news, our loan application only takes minutes to complete. That’s it! Easy, right?
A secured personal loan is a personal loan that is backed by equity such as a motorbike, car (new or used), caravan or boat. Our medium and large loans range from $2,100 up to $15,000 and you repay secured loans over 9 to 24 months. All personal loans above $5,000 are considered secured and must be backed by security, while medium loans between $2,100 and $4,600 can be unsecured or secured. We are upfront about all loan costs because we don’t want you to apply for a secured loan if you cannot risk the security. So, if you’re looking for a smaller loan, we offer those too!
An unsecured personal loan is a personal loan that doesn’t have to be backed up security. Are you a bit of a commitment-phobe? Then, unsecured loans might just be your perfect match. Without a need for security, our unsecured loans are easy to repay with flexible loan terms. When it comes to the unexpected, Nifty Loans is prepared to help get you back on track.
What other types of loans can be secured?
Secured loans can be used for just about any purpose, this is provided the security is of equal or greater value than the loan itself. With loans for larger purchases, secured loans offer more security for the bank and less interest for the customer. So what types of loans can be secured?
If you do not own a car but are looking to buy one, car loans can be secured against the vehicle being purchased. This can be brand new or used. The loan terms generally range from between 1-5 years and the interest rate is usually lower than an unsecured loan.
When taking out a home loan, the property in question is then used as security against the loan. This provides less risk for the large loan if it was to fail, as the bank would then take ownership of the property to pay off the amount owing if needed.
Term deposit loans
Term deposits work like a high interest savings account for a large amount and allow you to invest for a set amount of time agreed with the bank and get a fixed interest rate. These can be useful to stop dipping into savings when saving for bigger items like a car, motorbike or boat, as it does not allow for easy access to the funds.
A margin or investment loan is a secured line of credit which allows you to borrow funds to invest. This loan is secured against your shares or managed funds and can potentially increase the size of your investment returns and allow you to reach your financial goals faster. Although borrowing money to invest gives access to more money to invest, there are high risks associated with this so it is always best to do your research and ensure this is right for you before committing.
As it happens, those who qualify are also eligible for an unsecured loan! We’d love to provide easy finance for all Australians; however, we also adhere to responsible lending practices, so we have a few requirements to meet before applying for a secured loan:
