Since our foundation in 1962 we have approved over 350,000 finance applications

At Thorn Finance, we make sure that applying for a personal loan is quick, easy, and very straightforward

Beginning as a single television rental store in 1962, Thorn has grown into a substantial finance company that has approved more than 350,000 finance applications covering personal loans, retail finance, vehicle finance and business asset finance.

Thorn traces its origins back to 1962 when the price of a TV was similar to that of a car. To make televisions accessible to everyone Stan Pemberton created Dominion Television Services as a single TV rental store in Howick Auckland.

Since then, the business has grown into a substantial finance company with several brands all operating under Thorn Finance as the parent company. Since 1962, we have approved over 350,000 finance applications and counting.

Today, we offer consumers the opportunity to buy major appliances on weekly payment options through our dtr retail network and we also provide personal loans through the easi-cash brand, the Zest Finance brand and directly through Thorn Finance. We also offer a free service How’s My Credit that helps consumers understand and improve their credit score.

Thorn are also one of the companies that specialist retailers like Mag and Turbo and Auto Finance Direct use for finance.
