Why Plenti?

We believe the financial system has become bloated and inefficient so we’re using technology and data to give value - and power - back to the consumer. Our ambition is huge and the only way we can achieve it is by bringing together the best people in the world. That's where you come in.

Who are we?

Plenti is Australia's leading technology-led consumer lending and investing business. We are on a mission to challenge the status quo. We fund car, renewable energy and personal loans (including loans to cover legal fees) and we have opened up consumer credit to everyday Australian investors. We’ve funded nearly $1bn in loans and earlier this year we listed on the ASX, raising funds to help take our business to the next level.

What's the opportunity?

An important part of our business is providing finance to people who are going through a separation or divorce.
