Meet Athena, the home loan wrecker.


Meet Athena

The big banks are definitely having a lend… locking borrowers into a life sentence, charging them for sneezing, and giving 0% interest in treating customers like people. We know, we used to work for them.

Enter Athena, the Game-Changing Goddess of Good Stuff. She spoke to us (well it was more of a roasting) and talked of a brighter future where people could be freed of their mortgage handcuffs.

"It’s not about getting a home loan, it’s about getting rid of a £#!*ing home loan!"

She was right. We did the sums, and worked out that without the big bank costs and complications, and by creating our own ground-breaking tech platform that enables us to bypass the banks to access new methods of funding, then we actually could slice a pretty huge chunk of time and money off the life of the loan.

Finding a short-cut to financial freedom, Athena’s vision is now a reality. Now you can enjoy a home loan with a whole new level of service, speed and savings.

We all made the jump so we could create something different. We like it that way. If you’re the same, throw your hat into the ring. Athena likes different hats.
