Loans for the
self-employed

Since 2006 RedZed have been on a journey to help over 2 million self-employed Aussies.

Catering for a range of situations

We understand that being self employed is different and can be difficult. We understand that you are trying to build something special, something about which you are passionate. You don’t just clock in at 9am and clock out at 5pm. Sometimes you have to skip lunch (maybe even dinner) to get the job done.

RedZed started out as a small business and we have experienced all the good and the bad that comes with this badge of honour. The challenges of being self employed is something we think about day in day out.

We are proud to say that along our journey we have helped over 20,000 customers lending over $7 Billion. We currently manage in excess of $3 Billion, most of which has been used to help self employed Australians strive to achieve their ambitions. Whilst we are still on our journey to be the preferred lender to Australia’s self employed, we want to assist you on your journey.
