As a business, Zip is extremely well positioned to satisfy any potential changes to regulation with little-to-no disruption to our business model.

Of the highlights, the acquisition of SpotCap strikes us as the most interesting…

Zip Biz could be a key driver for the company

We previously discussed the merits of QuickFee Ltd’s [ASX:QFE] business model, which focuses on professional service firms.

It is clear from the SpotCap acquisition that the next frontier for Zip is clearly the SME world.

This has traditionally been the domain of the Big Four.

The SME loan market is worth around $77 billion a year and $70 billion of this is done by the Big Four.

At the moment, NAB has a 25% market share for companies with turnover of between $.1 million and $5 million.

It has been pushing its QuickBiz lending platform, with 45% of all its small business lending accounts now opened via the platform.

So if Zip can manage to penetrate this lucrative market and steal market share, its prospects could improve.
