High credit score will offer you a wide variety of loan options

If you have a high credit score, you will have a pretty easy time getting credit offers from a wide variety of funding sources to expand your business. If your score is low or nonexistent, however, you won’t.

By: Hitesh Khan/

But a low score isn’t something you can run away from, and even if you avoid it, it won’t go away. The trick is to fund your business in ways that actually get your score back on track so when you’re ready to move your business to the next stage, your score will start opening doors rather than getting them slammed in your face.

Here are some ideas for entrepreneurs who want to achieve high credit score:

high credit score1. Look beyond credit cards and bank loans for financing. Studies show that credit card and bank financing account for just 25 percent of the total funding needs of early-stage entrepreneurs. This statistic should provide you some comfort, because it implies that 75 per cent of the money you need can come from other sources that rely less high credit score.

While there are credit cards and lending programs designed for individuals with poor credit, these options will typically charge a higher interest rate to compensate for the credit risk posed by a sub-prime borrower. One bank option for those with poor credit scores is a home equity line of credit, though you should be wary of putting your home on the line to finance a risky early-stage venture.

2. Seek personal loans from your relatives and friends. Everyone likes the idea of entrepreneurship, which may be why, at some point, more than 50 per cent of all business owners get financing help from friends and relatives. Chances are, your relatives and friends want to see you succeed and may be able to help make your business dream a reality.

They also may not dwell on your poor credit score because they trust you, or they believe your business concept to be sound. (Banks used to evaluate your character and business conditions the way family and friends still do, but credit scoring models have made lending decisions more automated, resulting in the critical power your credit score holds over you.)

Also, you can now use private personal loans from relatives, friends and business associates to rebuild your high credit score.

Small business loans – 8 myths and facts about them

3. Investigate licensed moneylenders. There are several nonbank lenders  that offer loans to entrepreneurs. These personal loans are typically in the $1,000 to $35,000 range. Some of these sites are excellent sources of capital for those with poor credit and will also report your payments to credit bureaus which can help correct your credit score if you make timely payments. Be sure to shop around and compare rates since each lender offers a twist on how they price personal loans and spread risk to their lenders/investors.

For a borrower who don’t have high credit score, the interest rates on loans from these sources will tend to be high. But if you’re accustomed to credit-card-level interest rates, these rates may seem affordable, but remember this: You can make partial payments on credit card debt whereas installment loan agreements may restrict you from making partial payments.

There may be some licensed moneylenders who may be able to offer more flexible terms; since they’re small, they may not have a website or web-based loan application form, however, and may be hard to find. For some business owners, flexibility of repayment is more important than getting a slightly lower rate.

Urgent loans can help you overcome short term hurdles

4. Don’t overlook gifts and grants. If you need to avoid making debt payments, focus on getting “free” money in the form of gifts and grants. Your search will be long and hard–despite what you read on the internet, there is no silver bullet here. Be wary of services that promise to locate government or private grant programs for you. If you want to avoid scams, you will need to do your homework to locate programs that are available for your type of business.

Health-care businesses, technology companies, and retail businesses in low-income areas tend to qualify for the bulk of grant money. Other forms of “free” money include gifts from relatives, free office space from former employers, and free services from friends or business associates. If you’re creative, you can reduce your startup costs by brainstorming a list of people who would be willing to provide you with gifts and subsidised personal loans.

Casa Sophia reduces reserve price by $6m in bid to secure collective sale

Author: Ravi Philemon

Casa Sophia, a District 9 freehold development along Sophia Road, has reduced their reserve price by $6 million in a bid to try and secure a collective sale. The owners of Casa Sophia has previously put up the site for en bloc sale on the heels of the property cooling measures in July.

The Collective Sale Committee of Casa Sophia had previously listed their reserve price as $36 million.

The site’s exclusive marketing agent ERA Realty Network said that the 12-unit property was relaunched for collective sale by private treaty, after most of the owners agreed to a lower asking price of $30 million or $1,158 psf per plot ratio (psf ppr).

Located in an exclusive locale, the District 9 freehold, 12-unit development sits on 12,327.9 sq ft of land and consists of only three-bedroom units measuring 1,152 to 1,453 sq ft each. Under the Master Plan 2014, the site is zoned “residential” with a gross plot ratio of 2.1. It can be rebuilt into an estimated 34 units at 753 sq ft per unit.

Located in District 9, Casa Sophia is 350 metres away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. It is also near reputable educational institutions such as Saint Margaret’s Primary School, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts, School of the Arts Singapore and Singapore Management University.

“It wasn’t an easy decision for the owners as many of the them lived here since the project was built, but with costs of maintenance increasing due to the age of the building, they felt that it is time. They understood the current market sentiment, hence the decision for the second attempt with a lowered asking price,” said ERA representative Tjhai Citanegara.

“There were a couple of offers that came in during the initial attempt. With its locality and reasonable asking price, we expect stronger interest after the reduction,” he added.

New property curbs challenged by leading developers

The initial en bloc sale attempt of Casa Sophia happened just a few days after the Government announced new property cooling measures for private residential market.

En Bloc Sales Process Singapore – A Definitive Step-by-step Guide

The Government said the new property cooling measures were necessary to check sharp increase in prices, which could run ahead of economic fundamentals and raise the risk of a destabilising correction later, especially with rising interest rates and the strong pipeline of housing supply.

Some observers said that the en bloc sales market will be dampened by the cooling measures. As developers become wary of end-demand and are hurt by the 5 per cent non-remittable Additional Buyers’ Stamp Duty (ABSD) on land purchase, it is expected to have an impact on their offer prices.

Before the introduction of the property cooling measures, overall private property prices rose across most market segments, with the largest price surge seen in the Core Central Region (5.5%) and Outside of Central Region (5.6%).

As developers’ existing stock continues to diminish and supply of completed homes remain low, many projects especially those in the CCR have raised prices of their unsold units, some by even double-digits this year. Private residential market continued to gain traction with individual re-sellers have also seized the opportunity of increasing their asking prices in light of the more positive market sentiment fueled by the recent collective sales frenzy.

The higher launch prices at some new projects have however slowed the buying momentum in the primary market and sales volume has dipped considerably quarter-on-quarter. While overall sales had slipped quarter-on-quarter, it rose marginally on a year-on-year basis.

How the collective sale attempts of properties like Casa Sophia do, will determine if the Government’s new cooling measures will have a chilling effect in the property market.

Mr Paul Ho, the chief mortgage officer at iCompareLoan said, “the the collective sale attempt of Casa Sophia has been given an impetus with the owners agreeing to reduce the reserve price.”

He added: “Whatever decisions owners facing en bloc sale make, it is better to make it fast so that the sale (or non-sale) can be concluded with minimal delay and maximum benefit to the owners.”

One way is to conduct a Collective Sales Agreement (CSA) as well as concurrently collect a “Non Collective Sales Agreement (NCSA)”, so that once a NCSA reaches 20%, the collective sale process is called off. There is really no point to drag on.

Mr Ho suggested that if one’s home is at risk of en bloc, the owner could consider a home loan where there is no locked-in penalty, but instead entails a higher housing interest rate cost. The next best option is to look for packages with a waiver of locked-in penalty due to sale of property. Such owners may contact a mortgage broker to assist them to find such packages with waiver of locked-in penalty.

Braddell View estate to be put up for collective sale for $2.08 billion

Author: Ravi Philemon

Braddell View estate en bloc sale at a glance:

  • Prominently located on elevated land near pristine nature reserve
  • Stone’s throw from renowned schools and close to multiple MRT stations
  • Sprawling site presents developers with an opportunity to create a distinctive residential icon in Central Singapore

Colliers International announced that Braddell View estate – Singapore’s largest private residential site – will be put up for collective sale via public tender on 27 March 2019.

This comes after owners of 80 per cent of Braddell View estate – by both share value and strata area – have agreed to put the development on the market.

The owners’ reserve price of $2.08 billion translates to a land rate of $1,199 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr), inclusive of the differential premium to intensify land use and to top up the lease to a fresh 99 years which is estimated at $795.1 million. The Braddell View site has a lease tenure of about 102 years with effect from 1 February 1978.

Braddell View, a former Housing and Urban Development Company (HUDC) estate, was privatised in 2017 and sits on a sprawling hilltop site spanning 106,121.1 sq m (approximately 1,142,276 sq ft). The redevelopment site comprises two separate land lots: Lot 4487X (57,434.7 sq m or about 618,221 sq ft) and Lot 4490X (48,686.4 sq m or about 524,055 sq ft).

The development in Braddell Hill – comprising 918 units of apartments, maisonettes and penthouses as well as two shops – is the largest of the 18 HUDC estates in Singapore.

Ms. Tang Wei Leng, Managing Director at Colliers International, said, “Given that this is a sizable development, it is likely to see interest coming from a consortium of developers. We expect interested parties to conduct extensive due diligence on the site and we will do our best to gather as much information as we can to help prospective tenderers assess the merits of the plot, as well as minimise potential risks and lower the level of uncertainty. In the coming weeks, we will be engaging the authorities to seek more clarity on traffic impact study, the feasibility of a phased redevelopment of the site, and even explore the possibly of selling the site as two separate plots.”

En Bloc Sales Process Singapore – A Definitive Step-by-step Guide

Perched on large elevated grounds overlooking tranquil nature sanctuary, Braddell View estate is close to a range of amenities such as the Mount Alvernia Hospital, the healthcare hub in Novena, and renowned schools including Marymount Convent School, Raffles Institution, Raffles Junior College, Catholic High School, CHIJ Secondary (Toa Payoh), and Raffles Girls’ School, which is expected to be completed at the end of 2019.

Ms. Tang added, “This site has all the makings of a great residential estate, with its prime location on raised land in the heart of Central Singapore, generous land area, as well as proximity to top schools, healthcare facilities and several MRT stations. It is also within walking distance to MacRitchie Reservoir Park – a gateway to Singapore’s lush nature reserves. These excellent attributes make the Braddell View site stand out from the rest and will present developers with an opportunity to create a signature project that will elevate their profile throughout the region.”

The redevelopment site enjoys excellent connectivity, with easy access to the Pan Island Expressway and Central Expressway. It is well-served by three surrounding MRT stations: the Braddell MRT on the North-South Line; and the Marymount and Caldecott MRT stations on the Circle Line. Come 2020, the Caldecott MRT station will be connected to the new Thomson-East Coast line, providing even greater accessibility to the northern and eastern parts of Singapore.

Good property agents – qualities to look for

In addition, the upcoming North-South Corridor (NSC) near the Braddell View site will further improve accessibility and also help to reduce travelling time to the city when it is completed around 2026. The NSC is Singapore’s first integrated transport corridor featuring vehicular expressways, continuous bus lanes and cycling trunk routes.

Mr. Alex Teo, Chairman of the Braddell View Collective Sale Committee, said, “Having acquired the 80% consensus to take the collective sale process forward is a key milestone in our en bloc sale journey. We started the signing process a year ago and we knew then that it would not be an easy task given the large number of owners in the estate. I am heartened that owners have been open-minded, engaged and committed throughout the entire signing process, cognizant of the fact that the estate is ageing and in need of rejuvenation.”

The sizes of residential units at Braddell View range between 135 sq m and 313 sq m (about 1,453 sq ft and 3,369 sq ft). Depending on the size of their property, the owners of residential units stand to receive between $2.04 million and $4.03 million each upon the successful sale of the development. Meanwhile, owners of the commercial shops, which span 18 sq m and 48 sq m (194 sq ft and 517 sq ft), could receive about $529,500 and $1.2 million respectively.

Under the Master Plan 2014, the Braddell View site is zoned Residential with a Gross Plot Ratio of 2.1 and will have a proposed total Gross Floor Area of 222,854.3 sq m (approximately 2,398,781 sq ft). Subject to approval from the relevant authorities, Colliers estimates that up to 2,620 new residential units with an average size of 85 sq m (approximately 915 sq ft) could be built on the site, subject to Pre-Application Feasibility Study approval.

The tender for Braddell View estate will close at 3 pm on 28 May 2019.

Lack of capital and inadequate record-keeping are major causes of business failure.

By: Hitesh Khan/

lack of capital

Businesses which have lack of capital are doomed from get-go!

Sound entrepreneurs must know not only how much money they need to start the project but also how much working capital will need to carry them through the first months of operation.

Every day, bankers see people who want a business loan for the “opportunity of a life-time” that “just can’t fail.” These want-to-be entrepreneurs usually attempt to explain their notion orally, and have not done the necessary research to determine the feasibility of the idea.

In order to be taken seriously about your business loan, it is imperative to write a formal business plan. When a banker analyses a business loan application he/she looks at the “eight C’s of lending:”

  • Credit – It must be good, not necessarily perfect
  • Collateral – Something of value to secure the loan
  • Cash Flow – Ability of the business to repay the loan from operations
  • Capacity – Your personal ability to repay
  • Capital – Your cash investment or down payment
  • Character – Yours!
  • Conditions – Anything that can affect your business (industry, economy, etc.)
  • Commitment – Your will to succeed

If you have lack of capital to grow your business and are approaching a bank for loan, each one of these items must be addressed in the business plan.

Business expansion loans could be the lifeline to increase revenues

If you walk into the banker’s office with a plan in hand, you have made the first step in separating yourself from the pack. If you have lack of capital and are looking to the bank for help, these are the 6 factors who have to be mindful of:

  1. You will need good credit. If there are any problems on the report that can be remedied before meeting with a banker, do so. A lender may be able to make exceptions if you can document that a negative report was due to circumstances beyond your control. Include a detailed written explanation with supporting information in your financing proposal. However, if the report shows that you are irresponsible and you have not demonstrated a willingness to repay obligations, the lender will be unable to make a loan.
  2. There is no such thing as 100% financing. You are going to have to put some money into the business and the more you do, the better chance you will receive loan approval..
  3. A bank will require you to personally guarantee the loan even if you are incorporated. There is no way to avoid putting personal collateral at risk. If necessary this could include your house.
  4. Some businesses are easier to finance than others. Since over 60% of all small business start-ups fail within 5 years, lenders know that the odds are against a new business being around long enough to repay a loan. An existing business is easier to finance if profits are sufficient to repay the loan. Also, many sellers are willing to hold some of the financing. Franchises are generally easier to finance than independent start-up businesses.
  5. The process is not quick. If you must have the money to open by a certain date, make your loan application as far in advance as possible.
  6. There is no such thing as a grant. We have never heard about anyone – anywhere – who got free money from the government to open any type of for-profit business.

Business financing requires full and thorough preparation

Those who have lack of capital, basically need two types of funding:

1. Start-up Capital

Start-up capital is the money you need to spend before the business opens. The amount varies widely depending on the type of business. Some examples include:

  • Seed money – research and planning (usually for high-tech businesses)
  • Security deposits for a lease, utilities, etc.
  • Construction, renovations, signs
  • Equipment, tools, office equipment, etc.
  • Inventory
  • Labor – hiring and training staff before opening
  • Legal and accounting fees

2. Working Capital

Working capital is the money needed for day-to-day business expenses. You must have enough working capital available to pay all your bills until the business becomes cash flow positive and can support itself. This can take from several months to several years. After you complete your pro forma monthly cash flow projections you will have a very good estimate of the amount of working capital you will need. Allow extra for unexpected things. If you have just enough money to get started but not enough to properly operate the business, you may be doomed from the start.

P2P lending platform Validus Capital raises $20m to boost SME growth in SEA

for the source.
Author: Ravi Philemon

Validus Capital (Validus), Singapore’s leading P2P lending platform, has successfully raised US$15.2 million (S$20.5 million) in an oversubscribed Series B funding round.

Investment in Validus’ Series B round was led by FMO, Netherlands’ public-private development bank. FMO has over 300 investments in banking and financial services institutions (BFSIs). Its investment in Validus marked FMO’s first fintech investment in Southeast Asia, a region which saw over US$5.7 billion in fintech investments in 2017 according to KPMG.

Participating investors also include Taiwan’s Cathay Financial Holdings, Singapore’s Openspace Ventures (previously NSI Ventures), Temasek investment arm Vertex Ventures, Thailand’s AddVentures by SCG and Vietnam’s VinaCapital Ventures.

Founded in 2015 in Singapore, Validus brings together accredited individual and institutional lenders and SMEs. It obtained its CMS license from MAS in December 2017.

Since then, Validus has successfully topped US$133.1 million (S$180 million) in business funding – a record for P2P lending platforms in Singapore.

P2P lendingAjit Raikar, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Validus Capital expressed his confidence in the company’s future and talks about the strong global interest in Validus’ Series B fundraising, “Southeast Asia is one of the fastest growing economic regions globally, where there is a clear need for alternative financing platforms such as Validus to complement the traditional banking and financial infrastructures.

Having a strong team, technology and data science capabilities has allowed us to partner with strategic global investors for our next growth stage. This reaffirms that we are well on track to deliver on our strong growth forecasts, and our ambition to become a digital ‘bank-like’ fintech for underserved SMEs is well supported with two leading sovereign funds investing into Validus.”

According to Deloitte, SMEs contribute around 40 per cent of Southeast Asia’s gross domestic product (GDP) and employ 70 per cent of the region’s workforce. Despite the importance of SMEs regionally, support is generally lacking, particularly in terms of business financing. McKinsey Global Institute reported that 39 million Southeast Asian SMEs (or 51 per cent) lack access to credit.

P2P Lending has emerged as a popular alternative financing option for SMEs in Southeast Asia to service this unmet business financing gap.

Per EY, around 68 per cent of the region’s SMEs are receptive to tap into alternative financing options, including P2P Lending.

“Validus is particularly well-positioned to lead the P2P Lending industry’s change in Southeast Asia and spearhead financial inclusion among the unbanked and underserved businesses in the Region in a more digital way. Their planned expansion to Indonesia and Vietnam will strongly contribute to job creation by SMEs in these countries. We are excited to embark on this digital journey with Validus and their very strong shareholder base, as they continue on their steady and sustainable growth trajectory,” said Linda Broekhuizen, Chief Investment Officer, FMO.

With fresh funding, Validus is looking to invest heavily in technology innovation, particularly around artificial intelligence and machine learning to help make business financing even more convenient and safe for SMEs. It will also fund their Southeast Asia expansion, starting with Indonesia this year, followed by Vietnam.

Nikhilesh Goel Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Validus Capital, whose background is in private equity shared, “Our strategic approach in fundraising goes deep beyond the size of the investment. We look for partners who share our vision in driving inclusive growth in the region, who are able to offer the value-add and guidance needed.”

He added: “The strong partnerships we’ve built with our investors will not only help us to strengthen our technology and regional expansion but also provide the deep-seated connections and valuable advice across areas like business development, capital funding and recruitment, areas which are vital for the growth of the company.”

Over the past year, Validus has enjoyed a tremendous series of successes where it has become Singapore’s top SME P2P Lending platform. Two new products were introduced, namely Working Capital Financing and Purchase Order Financing. It experienced exponential growth in terms of loans where almost 2,000 loans were disbursed in 2018, representing a 260 per cent increase year-on-year (y-o-y) while disbursement volume increased 350 per cent y-o-y.

Overall, over 300,000 Singaporeans were directly and indirectly positively impacted with the Validus platform and their growth numbers forecast a direct impact to the country’s gross domestic product. Manned by an experienced SME lending team that looks beyond financial data, into behavioural patterns, Validus continues to be a beacon of support to growing SMEs across Southeast Asia.
