We're built on purpose

A rapidly growing Australian finance market.

Wisr is Australia’s first ASX-listed ASX:WZR neo-lender and a fintech pioneer in the rapidly growing Australian consumer finance market. 

Importantly, we’re purpose-built to improve the financial wellness of all Australians by helping Aussie’s access fairer credit, pay down their debt sooner, and better understand their financial standing and creditworthiness. 

How we do this?

We fuse the best of emerging fintech, products, apps and services with the operational reliability of a traditional lender.

We want to connect with customers at all stages of their financial journey to truly improve their financial wellness and get them out of debt quicker. 

Why are we doing this? For too long, traditional lending models have ignored the customers financial wellness and keep customers in debt for longer.

That's why we're reinventing what a consumer lending company can be.

Funding Journey

We’ve built a scalable business model that is purpose-led, fast growing, efficient and has massive opportunities ahead.

Importantly, we continue to evolve our funding structures to facilitate scaling the business safely, while driving significant revenue growth and increased margin as the business matures.

Our journey so far has been incredible.
