History
After seeing an opportunity in the unsecured short term loans market in late 2009, Holbiz sourced funds through a combination of shareholder equity and secured debt and formed a NCR registered short term credit provider.

Since full time operation of its short term credit provider business commenced in June 2010, Holbiz has successfully executed and managed over 2000 unsecured short term loan contracts and grown its debtors book by over 600% in the space of 20 months with a ROA of over 30% achieved in its first two financial periods.

In February 2013 Holbiz sold its debtors book to Bridge Corporate Ltd for a combination of debt and equity in Bridge, and proceeded to diversify into other areas.

2014 saw Holbiz further expand its bridging finance operations securing significant new investment as well as opening up markets for new loans. We also expanded and diversified our equities trading activities.

2015 was the year we delved into debt review and the insurance industry with significant investments in both areas, we started Holvest Offshore as a way to hedge our local portfolio and gain international exposure.

Current
As of  February 2016, Holbiz can boast a strong and diversified portfolio with numerous income streams and plenty of upside potential. We are currently working with two new start ups, Quantlab and Beach Home Properties.  For a more detailed look at our operations please see our reports below;
