Aman Singh arrived in Australia in 2001 and did his Master’s in Information Systems from Swinburne University.
Apart from the odd jobs that he did as a student, Singh says it was his first full-time job after his Master’s at a company called Money Plus that helped him discover his true calling.
“I worked in business development and as an information system developer. In the first year at my job, I was able to make valuable contributions to my company. The management was so impressed by my performance that I was offered shares. However, to gain deeper experience in the banking sector, I decided to join the ANZ graduate program,” says Singh.
In 2008, when he was working with ANZ bank, Singh decided to start his own business, Credit Hub, a professional financial services company.
The first six months were a struggle. Singh had to use up most of his savings to set up his office and had to take loans to keep the business afloat and survive in the market. “But I had confidence in my abilities and skills. I have always been good with customers and helped them with the right advice and this is what eventually paid off.”
In 2016, Credit Hub got its own credit licence. “We are also lenders and currently helping small and medium businesses with short term business and cashflow loans,” says Singh, who adds that the company is growing with every passing year and already has two branches in Point Cook and Epping and is planning to expand its presence to the Eastern region as well.
