“We see things differently...“

Redtree Capital has been providing asset finance specifically designed for small and medium sized South African businesses since 2011.

There are over 650 000 registered small and medium-sized enterprises in South Africa making up 91% of formalised businesses and providing employment to an estimated 60% of the labour force, with total economic output estimated at 34% of GDP. Many of these SME’s need finance in order to grow, but can find it hard to get support from traditional financial institutions.

our roots

to growth

Assets and equipment are essential to the growth of your business. It's important to stay current with the latest, most productive and efficient, equipment that your business requires.

We’re committed to helping enabling your business growth and will offer finance on assets and equipment up to the value of R1 500 000.

specialist focus

Finance is what we do, and as a privately funded business we see things differently to other financial institutions; we work differently in providing financing solutions to support entrepreneurial business growth without unnecessary bureaucracy and red tape. We want to see your business grow and know we’ve played a part in that.

real solutions

Your business is unique. Our approach is unique in that we get to know your business & look beyond the traditional rating criteria used by many financial institutions. By understanding what your business is about and what your financing requirements are, we are able to provide bespoke and flexible financing solutions to meet your specific business needs. We’re open to looking at your business where others aren’t.

quick turnaround

Time is your most valuable resource. That’s why we commit to get back to you on all fully compliant credit applications within 48 hours; and we’ll pay for your equipment within 24 hours of our approval criteria being met.


Our hands-on management team has over three decades of experience and expertise in providing business financing solutions for our clients, making us perfectly suited to understanding the challenges your business faces.
