This is the company behind the established brands Loanstreet & Loanplus. Loanstreet is a loan and insurance comparison site and Loanplus provides single point loan screening & origination for property developers & real estate agencies. The company also provides cutting edge white-labelled solutions for MNC clients through its consultancy arm Fincon.

Jared Lim, Founder and Managing Director of Finology said: “Finology is delighted to be part of HLB Activate 2018 and is looking forward to the journey together. Finology’s view is that with collaboration, Fintech can complement rather than disrupt the banking industry. HLB has passionately shown a similar understanding. We are grateful for HLB’s validation of Loanplus, and look forward to shaping the future of secured lending together.”
