Why Squirrel?

You can’t capture your life in a bunch of tick boxes. But when you’re making big financial decisions, that’s what you’re asked to do. If you think about it, that’s kind of absurd. At Squirrel we look beyond boxes and find the right solution for you.

Transparency and fairness

Our team are experts at what they do and there's nothing in it for them to push you into something that doesn't fit. We're open about where your loan is coming from and where your payments are going.

Smart tech, less admin, more value

With smart tech doing lots of the heavy lifting, we'll do our absolute best to make the process as simple and easy as possible.

Our loans are funded by Kiwis

We've got over 1,000 willing Squirrel investors who are all regular Kiwis looking to help out someone like you.

Products designed to suit your needs

Each of our unique lending products were created because we saw a need that wasn't being met. Whatever your situation, our goal is to get you the best value-for-money.
