What we look for in a borrower

We assess our loan applications with the “6 C’s of Credit Assessment” to ensure our Bigstone borrowers have a successful lending experience.

The way most lenders judge a borrower’s character generally has to do with the directors’ credit scores. This means establishing a good reputation within your industry, your suppliers and your customers.

To judge the capacity of a business, we consider cash flow, the timing of the repayment, and the probability of successful repayment of the loan. Information such as: borrowing history, record of repayment, debt capacity, and other relevant financial benchmarks might be used to assess this.

How financially invested directors are in their company shows how motivated and dedicated they are. To judge this, we will look primarily at a company’s liquid assets and discount the value of these assets.

We will look at what business conditions have led a customer to consider financing for their asset purchase. Positive attributes include, fit-outs for new venues, continued expansion, and overall business growth investments.

Cash flow will always be the primary source of loan repayment, but if cash suddenly becomes unavailable, lenders and investors want to understand the borrower’s ability to unlock secondary sources of repayment.

The cash flow of the business will be looked at in form of bank statements to ensure that serviceability of the loan can be met. This will help form the terms of the loan and ensure that there will be a successful lending experience leading to business growth for the company.

Bigstone Finance can offer fast, flexible loans from $10,000 to $2,000,000 for assets and equipment for your business.
