Why We Exist.
Very often in Singapore, entrepreneurs and SMEs businesses are turned down for traditional loans from banks and major financial institutions – usually through no fault of their own. Banks have certain requirements and risk limitations that can prohibit loan approval. When the economy takes a dive, or after it recovers, banks and financial institutions tend to raise the requirements for loan approval as a way to wipe away any requests that are deemed “too risky.” Unfortunately, this approach ends up marginalizing emerging and small business owners who may have a great shot at success.
In order to remedy this, the world of business finance offers a number of alternative lending products to business owners who would otherwise get turned away from banks. However, lenders cannot always be on the lookout for prospective clients. Similarly, most entrepreneurs do not know how to get in contact with alternative lenders. Some business owners do not even know that business lending is a viable alternative to bank loans. This is where our loan brokerage comes in.
So how do you know which lender is suitable for your business? And how do you find the best suited for you, based on the specific needs of your business? You search for it online, read some articles and maybe listen to some fellow business owners, and the conclusion: they all look and sound the same.
The reality is that there are so many numbers of ways in which you can save not just money by engaging a business loan broker to provide assistance with your SME financing needs and objectives. If you take the time to determine the value of using a business loan broker, you will surely see that it is money well spent, especially in Singapore.

This way, you can secure the best rate possible. Being able to compare how much your loan will cost you is a great money-saver for SME owners. If you work with only one lender, you’d never know if you could have gotten a better deal elsewhere, or likewise, if they reject, you will be disheartened.

Knowledge About Small Business Lending
Just because you own an SME business doesn’t mean you know everything about business loans in Singapore. So when you’re confronted with some jargon financial terms on your loan offer, you might not be able to fully interpret everything.
Invoice financing versus invoice factoring? Business credit versus personal credit? It can get a little confusing. In theory, business loan brokers will be able to explain all the complicated words and acronyms that will be attached to your loan offer.
Highly Renowned Lending Partners
It’s important to know that the lenders you’re working with are legalized and transparent. At Devise, we have vetted our current roster of lenders and are always searching for partners that meet our high standards to serve our business owners.
