What we're here for

To make life better for Canadian small business owners

Since 2006, we’ve provided over $1B in financing to help more than 17,000 Canadian small and medium businesses navigate everything from minor cash flow challenges to major financial setbacks.

To make business finances as easy as they should be in the modern world

Through easy-to-access, all-digital financial tools and flexible, personalized support, we help Canadian businesses survive, thrive, and grow to their full potential.

To support Canadian businesses, not get in their way

We don’t impose any usage restrictions on our funds, and we let our customers know as soon as they sign up just how much they can borrow. Everything is on the terms of the people who know their challenges best: the owners.

Its wealth-as-a-service platform simplifies all aspects of the advisory business – client migration, trade execution, portfolio management, and regulatory requirements – and allows advisors to focus on fostering meaningful client relationships.
