The Team

UCapital was founded by Maurice and Jacques Pretorius, brothers who grew up working in their light metal manufacturing business. It’s business more than finance that is in their DNA, which is an important difference between UCapital and traditional lenders. Their focus is on understanding how businesses work, what keeps them healthy, and what they need to develop.

Managing a Top 300 company at Executive levels has enabled Jacques and Maurice to identify business opportunities and take the necessary action to turn these opportunities into reality.

The Company

UCapital specializes in alternative (to the bank) business loans to SME’s ranging between $5,000 – $250,000. Traditional lenders only value the assets they can attach to secure their loans. We rather look at the health of a business and have helped thousands of entrepreneurs in Australia prosper. Just because an entrepreneur can’t get money from the bank, doesn’t mean he/she doesn’t have a great business. We say YES when the bank says NO.

Our product is not a last resort option. We can only help healthy businesses looking to grow. Our clients range from many different industries spread all over Australia. Our average loan size is $35,000 over 12 months or less.
