Australia’s largest customer-owned bank, Heritage Bank, has become the 22nd member of Aussie’s lender panel and the third selected in 12 months.
Heritage is regionally based but operates throughout the country making it a welcome addition to Aussie’s panel, according to Aussie’s CEO James Symond.
“Heritage is a welcome addition to our lender panel as it provides greater choice and products at our brokers’ fingertips. Heritage understands regional areas and is well placed to support our many rural stores and their customers.
“There has been strong growth in the customer-owned banking sector over the last 18 months suggesting that customers are seeking genuine alternatives to mainstream lenders, so we’re thrilled to be able to respond to this demand and add a quality player like Heritage to our hand-selected panel,” he added.
Peter Lock, CEO of Heritage Bank, said “We are delighted to be joining the panel of one of Australia’s top mortgage broking operations. We have been investing heavily in expanding our broker distribution and support model over the past 12 months and we are well positioned to provide Aussie’s brokers with the outstanding service and support they deserve.”
Heritage has a unique fixed rate offering allowing unlimited additional repayments and redraws with a very competitive rate, while offering a strong first home buyer’s product featuring a competitive rate and flexible family guarantee option.
The Heritage offering also provides a no credit score assessment and an ability to look at deals on their merits, providing brokers and customers with greater flexibility.
In addition to expanding its lender panel, Aussie is currently recruiting mortgage brokers across the country. To find out more or for a confidential discussion, visit www.aussie.com.au/careers
