There are 3 steps to assessing a borrower before they are approved with Bigstone.
Using good old fashioned analysis, and a proprietary process, we can quickly answer these questions for each borrower:
These four questions create a set of metrics we use to describe the loan request relative to our cashflow projections.
These three questions create a risk score that allows us to understand how risky the business is (probability of default). We can instantaneously compare each business to the performance of thousands of businesses to create a perspective on risk.
Only borrowers we think are creditworthy by clearing both hurdles, move forward.
Together these two first parts often create a set of questions which we put directly to the owners/directors of the business in a short telephone call.
This allows the owner of the business to put their loan request into context, and enable them to describe the need for the loan, and our team to qualify outstanding questions.
Once both parties are comfortable, contract is organised and the loan is listed!
We are more than happy to organise a quick session to take you through the details.

The ultimate goal for many small business owners is to increase revenue and build a financially sustainable and secure business. A business loan can be an affordable and flexible way to reach your goals more quickly, giving you the financial room you need to grow.
