The trail book lender has joined the lender panel for the second phase of the Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme and will soon release a new product for brokers, planners, accountants and property managers.
Specialist lender TrailBlazer Finance (TrailBlazer), a boutique lender offering business loans, valuations and M&A advice and services to brokers and financial planners, has announced that it has been accepted onto the lender panel for the federal government’s Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme – Phase 2.
It joins 36 other lenders that have now been confirmed on the panel.
Speaking of its inclusion, the managing director of TrailBlazer Finance, Jeff Zulman, commented: “As a specialist SME lender, we are all too aware of how much of a toll 2020 has taken on many small businesses.
“We are proud to have been selected as a participating lender in phase 2 of the Government SME Guarantee Scheme.”
Mr Zulman revealed that, as a result of the participation, it will soon announce a new “low-rate, fast-turnaround small-business loan for mortgage brokers and other white-collar professionals to further broaden our offering to the SMEs we serve”. Further details of this product are expected in the coming weeks.
