About Horizon Specialist Finance.

Who Are We?

Horizon Specialist Finance is a collaboration of five forward-thinking finance professionals. With a combined industry experience of over 100 years, we have identified a need for short-term, flexible funding solutions for the self-employed and small business owners. After all, we are small business owners ourselves.

Our solutions do not ask you to risk your home by using it as security, as the big banks usually will. Application decisions are usually within 48 hours and the funds can often be in your account the day following approval. It's that quick!

The funds can be used for any business purpose. Things like;

  • Purchase Equipment or Plant.
  • Expansion and Development.
  • Bargain Stock-Purchasing opportunities.
  • Marketing Campaigns or a new Website.
  • Workplace fit-out or Refurbishment.
  • Seasonal Cash-Flow Requirements.
  • Temporary Staff Hire.
  • Clearing ATO debts.
