About Yes Finance
Yes Finance was founded in 1997 as a private company and is 100% New Zealand owned and operated. Back in 1997, Yes Finance concentrated on the retail sector providing finance facilities to retail outlets for their customers to purchase goods.
In a very short time it became apparent that many New Zealanders found it difficult to talk to main stream lenders, like banks and large finance companies, which were very rigid in their approach. They wanted an alternative; a finance company they could talk to that was small enough to listen to their needs and provided customer-focused solutions.
Since then, Yes Finance has gone from strength to strength. We have prospered through the troubled times of the global economy and become stronger for it.
Today, Yes Finance is a solid, resilient and trustworthy financial “Solution Provider”. We provide quick and easy financial products and services, both online and in person, such as:
- Personal finance – Loans to private individuals for personal needs including purchases like vehicles, boats, caravans, holidays, special days like weddings, debt consolidation and other personal reasons.
- Motor vehicle finance – Providing finance facilities to vehicle dealerships for the sale of cars, trucks, boats and caravans.
- Business loans – For plant or other asset purchases.
- Vendor finance– Providing finance facilities to retail outlets for their customers to purchase goods.
Our customers are everything to us and our experienced team is committed to listening to and working with all our customers.
