Jacaranda Finance, the award-winning Australian Fintech powerhouse, has proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with. The short-term lender has been nominated as Australian Small Business Champion finalists in the Financial Services category for 2021, beating out over 3,000 entries.
CEO of Jacaranda Finance, Daniel Wessels, has also been nominated as Small Business Champion Entrepreneur. Jacaranda Finance plans to dominate both categories, hoping for a clean sweep of these prestigious awards.
Wessels is honoured and proud to be named a finalist in both award categories. Particularly with the difficult year that passed, the award nomination is an impressive validation of the company’s continual growth and success.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be recognised and acknowledged in my field and against some incredible companies. I’m so proud and grateful for the team I have behind me. None of this would be possible without each and every person that works so incredibly hard to deliver the best service to our clients,” said Wessels.
He continued to say, “The two nominations are particularly meaningful this time around in the wake of a disruptive year behind us. COVID-19 meant that we needed to change and adapt our strategy. While it didn’t come without its struggles, our hard work seems to have paid off! We have seen strong demand for our loan products from consumers as well as unprecedented investor commitment via our investment arm Zenobia Capital that manages our investment program.”
Jacaranda Finance has been nominated as finalists for the Australian Small Business Champion Awards four years running, which is how long the Financial Services category has existed. In 2019, they took out the award for the first time, named Financial Services Champion.
The winners will be announced at the gala presentation at The Star Event Centre, Sydney on Saturday 31 July 2021. Members of the Jacaranda Finance team look forward to attending, and plan to take back their title of Small Business Champions for the Financial Services sector this year.
