Harmoney breaks into song

, 27 September 2019

The Harmoney team gathered to sing Making It Happen, a song written specifically for the company. The company’s Fiji team also recorded a version of the song from their Suva office, which was incorporated into the final video.

Harmoney founder Neil Roberts says the idea for celebrating five years in song came from wanting to do something that reflected the company ethos of bringing people together.

“We wanted a way to celebrate our birthday that was a little bit different; that not only celebrated where we’ve come from, but our goal of helping our customers ‘make things happen’ in their own lives.

“It was a way to have some fun as a team, enjoy the fact that we’re going strong after five years and say thanks to our customers who have got us here.

“We have a musical name so celebrating our birthday musically seemed to make sense.”

The first Harmoney loans were funded in New Zealand in September 2014. Since then the company has gone on to help almost 40,000 borrowers with $1.4 billion across 59,000 loans.

The company launched into Australia in 2016 and in the last financial year surpassed $100 million in lending there. In August 2019 Harmoney was named the Best Personal Loan (Risk-Based) at the 2019 Finder Awards in Australia
