About Fortress

Who Is Fortress Funding?

Over the years we have delivered improved financial solutions to hundreds of businesses and individuals alike. We focus on combining your objectives with what we know, and who we know, to provide a great outcome for you.

Our online structure allows us to provide you with a premium service using the efficiencies of online loan applications with the support of qualified specialists supporting you over the phone and email. We are not a call centre operation or a big bank – we offer a personal long term service to all our clients with the aim of offering a customised service delivered to you without the need to leave your home or office.

  • We are paid by the lender. We help secure the right loan for you, not the best commission for us

  • Guaranteed confidentiality. We are regulated by ASIC and only discuss your business with parties agreed to by you

  • We speak to the lender on your behalf and won’t fall victim to hard selling

  • Our experience and network of specialists ensures fast results

  • We have access to exclusive rates

  • We operate on a full disclosure basis and are members of CIO, FBAA and AFG

Not only do we pride ourselves on knowing what options may exist in the market for you, we know who to talk to in order to make it happen. Our extensive network of contacts in the lending world ensures that clients get the most appropriate solution.

Our founder and CEO, Roger Castle, has been a finance broker for the past 17 years and before that worked in one of the “big four” banks. In addition, Roger has owned businesses in the areas of retail, hospitality, industrial sales and property. He realised long ago that it’s hard for clients to find people in the banks with the level of skills and commitment to service that they need as a client. That’s why Fortress Funding was established. We set out to solve the problem by either negotiating your loans needs for you, or introducing you to the right person inside the bank.

Why Fortress Funding?

The team at Fortress Funding have the experience and insights from working for one of the “Big Four” banks as a lender, along with finance and business brokering for private firms. This means that Fortress has the unique advantage of understanding how to best approach lenders, and what to say to secure the right loans you or your business.

Specialist lending, alternative lending, debt consolidation and unsecured loans require skills that most brokers and lenders do not possess. Fortress Funding experience in these areas allows us to help understand our clients needs, and successfully negotiate with lenders to secure funds under the right conditions.

We want the best result for you. So if you’re not sure what specialist lending is, or need more information on how to tackle your debts, contact us for a free consultation with no obligation to proceed.
