What are the benefits of Collateral Lending?

  • Expedited approvals

    Our online application and streamlined underwriting3 means you'll get answers quickly.

  • Simplified lending process

How does the program work?

Choose your secured lending option:

  • Line of credit: Get the flexibility to access cash anytime with interest-only payments
  • Fixed-rate loan: Get cash in a single lump sum with fixed rate options and principal and interest payments
