Looking for unsecured loans?

Nifty Personal Loans is Australia’s fastest growing short-term loan lender, offering quick cash between $300 and $2,000 repayable over up to 6 months. Our loan service is 100% online – which means goodbye to endless paperwork and tracking down years of paper bank statements. Hooray!

Unsecured loans are loans that are not secured by equity. Typically, they are small loans, borrowed over a short period of time.

Therefore, Nifty Personal Loans can approve unsecured loans up to $2,000 using only a quick application, and the combined effort of our cracked team of loan specialists.

Close up: unsecured personal loan

Okay – let’s break it down. Firstly, a loan is an exchange of money for the promise of future repayment. This future repayment is usually calculated from the original loan amount (principal) + agreed fees and charges.

Secondly, what makes an unsecured cash loan, is simply that has been approved based on the customers’ ability to repay the loan, rather than by holding property or possessions against it.

What this means for you is that a Nifty unsecured loan will only ever cost you exactly what you agree upon in your contract. Better yet, we will never ask for your property at any stage of the process. Guaranteed!

An unsecured personal loan means less risk for you! With a secured personal loan, you must provide security to ‘secure’ the loan, such as a motorbike, caravan, boat or car. Unsecured personal loans are the perfect fix for a pesky financial situation.
