Can't watch the video? Why not read it instead?

OK, so you’re on the hunt for a loan, you’ve filled in your details online and now you’re being emailed by a load of different companies, offering you finance, but you still haven’t found what you’re looking for, so what happened? Well, let’s fill in the gaps and get your application back on track. Chances are, you searched for a loan on Google and ended up filling in a form on a broker’s website - the broker has passed your details to a number of lenders to try and find you a loan, but hasn’t been successful. To try and point you in the right direction, they’ve now sent you over to Choose Wisely.

If you’re looking for a loan, we can match you with suitable lenders to compare and let you know how likely it is that they’ll accept your application.
