Business challenge

Our client required an independent commercial due diligence to assess the size and growth of the Australian and New Zealand personal lending market, and project both market share and income potential of the target company.


A leading financial institution was considering buying the Australian and New Zealand business of a global consumer lending company.

They were competing with three other bidders for this transaction, which was expected to rank as the largest private equity deal in Australia since the global financial crisis.
