LoanConnect and Asset Direct of Canada Inc. (collectively known as “ADC”) provides consumers with a search engine that searches for loans from various Canadian lending institutions. ADC helps connects consumers looking to finance goods or services with loan organizations that offer loans outside of traditional mortgages or lines of credit. ADC also works directly with business owners and sales professionals by offering them a consumer portal. Companies that utilize our service can log their clients onto their portal and lead them through an application for financing that offers an instant loan to cover the cost of their product or service.
