Bondaval enables promises.

Independent retailers struggle to unlock the working capital they need to run and grow their businesses. Bondaval’s next generation credit security comes in the form of a Microbond – the same as a big corporate or government bond, but much smaller, faster, flexible and accessible.

The proprietary technology stack underpinning the Microbonds uses big data and machine learning, layered over deep surety and credit underwriting expertise. This unique credit risk engine democratises access to the most efficient credit solutions for all retailers and guarantees certainty for wholesalers.

Independent retailers are forced to use archaic and ill-suited instruments to secure inventory, which comes at a huge opportunity and material financial cost. The laborious 6-month process costs them time, access to their working capital and restricts further business growth.



Bondaval’s solution is simple – Microbonds enable trustworthy retailers to access collateral-free credit security/ in a few clicks, saving precious time and freeing up capital.
