About Us

Who we are

Industry leaders on a mission

Arteva was born from the merging of two of Australia's leading independent premium funding companies - Premium Funding and Principal Finance.

Now Australia's largest independent insurance premium funding company, we are all about providing finance and payment solutions that have purpose, are easy to access and break the mould of other solutions out there.

We are proven pioneers in our field, having delivered service and product industry firsts, time and time again. And that's not going to stop. It's what gets us out of bed everyday ... and we love it.

Service is important to us too. Our 60+ years of industry experience has taught us that relationships are everything. Our trusty team of friendly experts are our key to success in this department, providing first-class service to our broker partners and clients alike.

In 2023, Arteva will expand our operations to provide fast, flexible and fuss-free funding solutions to our broker partners and clients in New Zealand.

What we do

We help businesses and clients achieve their goals

On the surface, we provide secure finance and payment solutions to Australian businesses and clients. But when we dive a little deeper, what we really do is create opportunity, growth and peace of mind by providing financial flexibility.

How we got here

A long and fruitful journey

So, let's take a step back for a moment.

Established in 1992, Premium Funding was one of Australia's longest standing premium finance companies. With head offices in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, as well as a national sales team spread across the country, Premium Funding was well-known as an industry trend-setter, being first to market with a number of different product and service enhancements.

Principal Finance also has a long and rich history. Founded in 1985 in Adelaide, Principal rapidly grew and expanded its operations nationally. Known for providing simple, effective and tailored solutions, Principal's mission has always been to provide the best funding experience in the market.

In January 2021, Premium Funding and Principal merged under a new ownership arrangement to create who we are today - Arteva Funding.

We are independent and can move fast.. We don't wait for change, we get on with it. We look for opportunities to make things easier and more efficient for our partners, clients and customers.

Act with integrity

Integrity is the foundation for everything we do. We're honest, ethical, transparent and committed to doing what's best for our partners, clients and company.

In it together

We are at our best when we work together with our colleagues, partners, clients and communities. All of us is better than one of us. There are no egos or personal drives. Our focus is on the partners, clients, customers and supporting each other.
