Zillidy is a finance company providing a new way to access short term cash quickly by using the assets that you already own. Their goal is to provide all Canadians access to short term loans and to meet their cash flow needs without impacting their credit by leveraging their jewelry, gold, diamonds, watches, and precious metals.
Zillidy is a personal asset lender that acts like your own personal private banker. They enable you to tap the equity that exists in your personal assets, stuff that you love dearly and don’t want to lose, so that you can get a short term loan whenever you need it by using the same asset over and over again.
Zillidy is like having a home equity line of credit on your personal assets – but with some major benefits. A Zillidy loan will never impact your credit score and Zillidy will never show up on your credit report.
They have a background in asset based lending to small and medium sized companies in Canada and the US. Through that experience, they have identified an opportunity to offer the same service, rates and value that they provide to business owners to everyone in Canada.
They believe that access to capital shouldn’t be limited to the “big guys” who have lots of assets to use as collateral. Anyone with a single personal asset should be able to unlock the value of that asset to meet their cash flow needs without any fear of hurting their credit.
Their service is unique. Although they hold your asset for you in their secure facility throughout the loan period, they are not an online pawn shop.
