Pawnbank has revolutionised this traditional industry by becoming Australia’s first online asset lender, providing loans from $1,000 to $100,000 secured against your items of value.

The brainchild of international business woman, Leanne Coneybear, Pawnbank is Australia’s first online loan exchange offering cash for luxury goods as security. Estate jewellery, diamonds, watches, luxury handbags, fine art, wine, antiques, cars and boats are all loan options available at the click of a mouse.

According to Leanne, “When people want cash, they also want convenience. With the heightened tightening on lending recently by the big banks and many other lenders, Australians are now hyper-aware and cautious about somewhat grey loan conditions contained in the fine print.

What Pawnbank offers is a clear and concise loan offer that’s a rock-solid exchange based on something you already own – an asset for cash agreement where you determine the final loan outcome. What’s easier than that”?

Pawnbank is a fast, secure, simple and confidential loan platform designed purely for clients to release the maximum amount of cash from their dormant luxury goods.

It’s all about easy money, every day.
