Payday lender Nimble to refund $1.5 million following ASIC probe


ASIC identified significant deficiencies in Nimble Australia Pty Ltd’s (Nimble) compliance with responsible lending laws. Nimble must refund more than $1.5 million to over 7,000 customers because of ASIC’s investigation.


ASIC found that Nimble:

  • did not properly take consumer’s financial information into account;
  • failed to recognise where consumers had taken out repeat loans from different payday lenders; and
  • failed to make proper inquiries into consumers’ requirements and objectives.

Nimble is also required to make a $50,000 contribution to Financial Counselling Australia.

Concerned consumers may contact CCLSWA on 9221 7066 for advice on this issue.
