Company Overview

Latitude is a leading instalments and lending business, with 2.8 million customer accounts, more than 5,500 merchant partners in Australia and New Zealand and 5,800 accredited brokers throughout Australia. Latitude’s merchant partners include major retailers across a wide range of living and lifestyle categories, providing Latitude with significant scale and distribution for its products.

Latitude has since established itself as a disruptor in payments and lending, combining the risk management processes and long‑standing customer relationships fostered under its GE heritage with substantial investment to create a unified brand and experience for its partners and customers, with upgraded technology, an established funding platform and ongoing customer innovation.
