Why more brokers are turning to CFI Finance
Business Finance that's Fast, Flexible, and Fair...
That's CFI Finance.
Are you looking for a finance company that can see when a deal just makes sense?
At CFI we know that not every deal fits seamlessly into a neat and tidy box. All of our customers have different requirements, different experience, different goals, and no two deals are the same.
That’s what makes CFI different. Most deals we fund are the result of working closely with our introducer partner, seeking to understand all aspects of a transaction, and to look for more ways to say ‘yes’.

Our Introducer Guide gives you all the information you need about how to deal with CFI. In it you’ll find useful information about the types of finance we provide, as well as details on how you can save time with our Broker Portal.
Generally yes, accreditation is easy and you can start the process online. We can accept limited referrals from non-accredited brokers, however referral fees are limited and CFI must deal directly with the customer. You can also complete the accreditation process in parallel with your first deal approval. Click Here to get accredited.
Yes we do, with our broker portal you can quote deals, submit and track applications, ask your customers to complete online applications or provide bank statement, and more. Talk to your CFI contact about portal access if you’re not setup already.
CFI provides Business Loans (Secured over all business assets), Asset Finance (Chattel Mortgages & Leases), and Working Capital for established businesses.
At CFI we started out just financing franchises, so we’re very good at it. CFI has relationships with lots of major franchise brands, and our franchise accreditation model can make it easier for existing and prospective franchisees to access funding. Brokers can still introduce transactions for our accredited brands.
We’re also happy to work with brokers to develop or support franchise relationships which are already in place.
Yes we will. CFI’s work in the franchising space has helped develop our underwriting criteria for new entities. The transaction should still make sense, with customers expected to have relevant experience and some ‘skin in the game’.
No we don’t. Part of what sets CFI apart is our ability to look at transactions from a range of angles and to structure a security position that can help ‘make a deal’ where others can’t.
No. CFI is a true independent finance company, we make our own lending decisions and set our own policies.
Honestly it would probably be easier to list things we wouldn’t finance (but it’s hard to think of many). We do look at the realisable value of assets pledged as security, but that’s considered alongside a broad range of other factors, particularly the people involved in the business, servicing capability, and more.
