Fincheck is a user-friendly online portal which provides totally independent, unbiased and transparent facts and figures about similar financial products on offer from different financial services institutions.
Fincheck gathers information from South African lenders, banks, and debt consolidation partners and matches consumers’ requirements, provides comparable information on relevant products being offered by various financial institutions, and once the consumer has made their choice, it links them with the financial service provider that best meets their needs. In turn, ordinary South Africans are able to access the financial market more easily.
No other South African website gathers as in depth information or works as closely with financial services partners as Fincheck. We recommend only registered financial services providers. It, therefore, helps users to avoid loan sharks and Ponzi schemes. It is expanding the number of credible partners it works with all the time.
Fincheck allows users to compare 26 different financial products from various services providers. These range from loans (personal and student), cheque accounts and debit cards all the way through to foreign exchange and unit trusts. The number and range of products available for comparison on Fincheck are growing all the time.
Fincheck helps users choose the product which will best suit their needs and their pockets. Targeting ordinary South African consumers who do not need high levels of financial literacy to use the portal, Fincheck empowers them to make critical financial decisions based on accurate information before making a commitment, and before entering into the financial services market.
We are a lead allocation platform that matches the correct borrower/individual to the correct lender/bank. By doing this we hold hands with South Africans and walk with them from being net borrowers to net investors
