Inside Franchise Business: Record year leads to Aussie Home Loans growthAustralia’s leading mortgage broker, Aussie, is going from strength to strength following a record-breaking year.

FY18 saw the opening of 14 new stores for the Australian icon, with ten more slated for early FY19, some of the largest growth for Aussie in its 26 years of operation.

In addition to record growth, FY18 also saw Aussie’s more than 1000 mortgage brokers settle a monthly average of over $1.5 billion, achieving the brand’s highest settlement year ever, worth in excess of $18 billion.

Now, as Aussie’s loan book approaches $65 billion, James Symond, Chief Executive of Aussie says the brand is more focused than ever on finding the right broker business partners to join its growth trajectory.

“Aussie had an incredibly solid FY18 – the strongest in our 26-year history. It’s amazing when you think that just over a decade ago we didn’t have a single store – and now it’s thriving and showing no signs of slowing down,” Symond said.

Capitalising on strong results that included multiple record months in its franchise channel, Aussie has developed a culture for franchise support.

Aussie has been investing heavily behind the scenes to ensure its brokers and team members have the technology, systems, processes and support structures they need to meet, and exceed rapidly evolving customer, community and regulatory expectations.

As the brand gears up for a whirlwind 2019, Aussie is putting franchisee success first, driving growth and providing prospective franchisees with the opportunity to shape their business opportunity with the backing of an industry-leading brand.

“Fourteen new Aussie stores opened their doors in FY18, and that’s exciting. Our record growth combined with the MFAA’s recent market share data showing borrowers continue to vote with their feet and use mortgage brokers as their preferred way to find a home loan, highlights the future potential in this great industry,” Symond said.

“We are keen to find new franchisees looking to start, or grow, a small business with the backing of an industry leading brand. We have some very strong franchise territories available across the country, and are always looking for new mobile brokers to join the team.”
