Our broker’s priority is to you, their customer. We require our brokers place your finance needs above those of anyone else.


Our brokers are required to be transparent about products, your options, applicable fees, and charges as well any conflicts of interest. They will communicate in simple to understand language and act with the highest standards of integrity. They are committed to ensuring the product selected will meet your needs, requirements and be in your best interests at the time of assisting you obtaining finance.




This Credit Guide contains important information about us, the services we provide and the activities of the credit representative operating under our credit licence. It also contains:


  • information about fees and charges that may be payable by you to us
  • commissions that we may receive when we are acting as a credit representative
  • commissions that we may pay to third parties for introduction of business, and
  • information about what you should do if you have a complaint or dispute in connection with our services and activities.

We are required to provide this document to you as soon as practicable after it becomes apparent that we are likely to provide credit assistance to you. We provide “credit assistance” when we:

  1. Suggest or assist you in applying for:
  2. a particular loan with a particular lender
  3. an increase to an existing loan with a particular lender, or
  4. Recommend that you remain in an existing loan contract.



Prior to providing credit assistance to you, we must assess whether the particular loan is “unsuitable”. A loan will be “unsuitable” based on the information you provided to us if:

  1. You will be unable to repay the proposed loan or will only be able to repay the proposed loan with substantial hardship, or
  2. The proposed loan does not meet your requirements and objectives.

We are required to document our findings that the proposed loan is not unsuitable by way of completing a Preliminary Assessment. The Preliminary Assessment will set out your:

  • requirements and objectives
  • financial and relevant personal situation, and
  • ability to repay the proposed loan.

We are also required to take reasonable steps to verify information provided by you to us.

This verification may include:

  • requesting you for copies of documents that demonstrate your financial situation – in some cases we may also need to sight original documents, and
  • contacting third parties to assist in verifying the information that you provide.

Obtaining a copy of the Preliminary Assessment


If we provide you with credit assistance, you may request a copy of our Preliminary Assessment anytime for up to 7 years and we must provide you with a copy of the assessment within the following timeframes:


 Your request is made:

We will give you your assessment:

Before the Credit Day*

As soon as possible after we receive your request

Up to 2 years after the Credit Day

Within 7 business days after we receive your request

Between 2 to 7 years after the Credit Day

Within 21 business days after we receive your request

*The Credit Day is the date the credit contract is settled or the credit limit is increased.

There is no charge for requesting or receiving a copy of the Preliminary Assessment.


We may charge a fee for providing credit assistance to you. If applicable, details about those fees payable by you will be set out in a Credit Quote which we will give you prior to submitting your loan application. 

Other fees and charges

You may have to pay other fees and charges (such as application fees, valuation costs and other applicable fees) to the lender or other parties. You should review the particular loan contract documentation for further details of any such fees and charges. 



Our aggregator receives commission from the lenders and then pays us commission in relation to loan contracts (such as home and investment property loans, asset finance and personal loans) for providing credit assistance.

In most instances an upfront commission is payable by lenders in relation to settled (drawn-down) loans and is calculated as a percentage of the loan amount. It is usually paid after settlement of the loan.

Trail commission is payable in most instances by mortgage lenders in relation to settled (drawn-down) loans. If applicable, trail commission is generally calculated monthly on the outstanding loan balance and is paid in arrears.

The upfront and trail commissions that we are paid by lenders are not payable by you. Details of commission to be received will be included in the Credit Proposal Disclosure document that we will provide you with when credit assistance is provided.

Asset Finance and Personal loans

In relation to asset finance and personal loans, the amount paid is based on both the total amount financed and the particular loan product you have selected. We may receive the following commissions after your loan has settled.


Type of Commission (Asset Finance & Personal Loans):

Commission or Brokerage Fee

(Paid after settlement)

Ranging from a minimum 0% to a maximum of 8% depending on the type of credit contract and calculated on the total loan amount financed including GST.

The method of calculation is based on the net amount financed including GST. Details of commission and/or brokerage to be received will be included in the Summary of Requirements and Credit Proposal document that we will provide you with when credit assistance is provided.

In some instances we may also receive a volume bonus for some types of finance ranging from a minimum 0% to a maximum of 1% depending on the type of credit contract, the total volume of introduced business including GST.

From time to time, we may receive a non-commission benefit by way of training, professional development, entertainment, gift, conference attendance, sponsorship, or entry into a competition run by a lender or my aggregator, at no extra cost to you. The nature of such arrangements are temporary, and the occurrence and amounts are often not readily ascertainable, however if they are apparent as a result of assisting you with credit assistance, this will be disclosed to you.



We are authorised to engage in credit activities and therefore provide assistance to obtain loans for you from a panel of credit providers. We maintain an up-to-date record of the credit providers through which our company generally conducts the most business over the last 12 months. As this changes regularly, a copy of our current top 6 lenders will be provided to you at the time of your enquiry when we provide you with a copy of this credit guide, as well as the number of lenders we are accredited with, and the lenders we are accredited with.

In some circumstance I may have access to tiered servicing programs through the lenders listed below. These programs give you, as my customer access to preferential services. Access to these programs is not based solely on the volume of loans submitted and does not entitle me to any additional commission outside of what I will disclose to you if a loan is submitted to one of these lenders. It should be noted that these preferential services do not provide customer discounts. If we currently have any available that we use, they will be listed below. Where the table is blank it means we are not currently using a preferential service lender, or are not aware of the preferential service offering from that lender.
