PRIMARY PROBLEM SOLVED

Finding new ways to make a difference with your money is at the heart of everything we do at Squirrel. So, when it comes to the age old practice of lending, we think we can make a pretty big difference indeed. It's why we've launched Squirrel Money, a peer-to-peer – or as we prefer to call it person-to-person – lending service. It's not that different to traditional lending from a bank - except that the funding comes from individuals like you. We're based in Auckland but thanks to the powers of technology, we're available for people all over New Zealand.

Finding new ways to make a difference with your money is at the heart of everything we do at Squirrel. So, when it comes to the age old practice of lending, we think we can make a pretty big difference indeed. It's why we've launched Squirrel Money, a peer-to-peer – or as we prefer to call it person-to-person – lending service. It's not that different to traditional lending from a bank - except that the funding comes from individuals like you. We're based in Auckland but thanks to the powers of technology, we're available for people all over New Zealand. Essentially person-to-person lending is a new approach to a old established lending model. Whereas once you borrowed from a bank, this now happens within a broader online community, enabled by our secure marketplace technology. It's like lending, without an institution getting in the way. And this is an important distinction we believe strongly in. See, not all P2P lending companies keep the financial institutions out of their business. In fact, some are funded by the very same institutions who have had a stranglehold on lending for years. But not at Squirrel Money. We are genuinely person-to-person. There is no institutional meddling in our service. No big money men, taking yet another slice. Just interactions between people like you, through a government regulated marketplace. A new and better way of lending.
