Aussie. Australia’s Best Mortgage Broker.

Home Option Gallery congratulates Aussie for recently being awarded Best Mortgage Broker and Most Innovative Product of the Year at the annual Australian Banking & Finance Awards in Sydney.

Held in May, the Awards recognised Aussie as the country’s Best Mortgage Broker as well as for having the Most Innovative Product for Loan Cover. This dual achievement in 2009 backs up Aussie’s win last year of Best Mortgage Broker and Non-Banker Lender.

Aussie’s Executive Chairman Mr John Symond Aussie’s Executive Chairman Mr John Symond said it was rewarding to win both prestigious awards, and further cemented Aussie’s position as the country’s pre-eminent non-bank financial services group.

Mr Symond said he was very proud to be recognised as a leader in our core business of mortgage broking. “And I’m equally proud to be recognised among a stellar field of financial services products for our innovation in insurance cover. We thank the dedicated Aussie team as well as our business partners for our continuing successes,” he said.

Mr Symond said Aussie would continue to be the customer’s champion by providing a host of additional financial products and services tailored to their needs.

He said unlike other financial institutions, Aussie has embarked on an aggressive expansion structure and is actively hiring new employees in a time when other organisations are reducing their workforce.

“With the acquisition of Wizard, we now have the largest team of mortgage brokers in the country with more than 800 mobile lenders and franchisees ready to help Australia get a better deal for their finances,” Mr Symond said.

With the Loan Cover product, Aussie partnered with AMP to provide affordable and easy access to insurance – traditionally one of the roadblocks for the majority of Australians who are under-insured. It covers customers for death or terminal illness up to $500,000.

This product has been a great success with a simple, “no questions asked” application process with no complex underwriting and no medical checks required for the customer. The product guarantees acceptance and has generous terms for pre-existing conditions.

“With the majority of Australians severely under-insured and with economic uncertainty still hanging over the globe, this product is a no-brainer,” Mr Symond said.

“For the cost of a daily cup of coffee or for the cost of insuring a second-hand Holden, this product can help protect customers and their families should misfortune fall.”
