Our story

Fair & transparent finance

Founded in 2012, etika is present in Australia and the UK. We are privately owned with no shareholders to answer to. The word etika means ‘ethical’ in several languages and that’s what we embody in our people, services and ethos.

We’re a purpose-driven lender with a unified vision, but with the ability to serve distinct segments and varied demographics.

Our mission is to bring financial inclusion to more people and businesses with fair and transparent finance.

We do the right thing

Be open and honest

We say it as it is and do what we say. We are transparent, upfront and real in everything we do. 

Be bold

We unapologetically stand up for what we believe in. We are unafraid to challenge the status quo and empower others to do the same.

Our approach to being a force for good 

We provide loans that fund a positive impact on people or the planet
In 2022 over 70% of our loan originations were for projects or partners that aim to have a positive impact on people or the planet - from improving hearing to providing accessible housing for disabled people. 

We promote financial inclusion & wellness for our customers
We can provide loans to those with no or thin credit files, people over 80 years old or on disability pensions. We charge no late fees & charge fair (or no) lending rates.

We offer a fair & inclusive work environment, culture and employee offerings
We are committed to paying a living wage and 100% of our employees are paid a fixed salary. We provide a supportive and inclusive work environment.
