Lending Solutions

Lending for Advisers

Our Lending as a Service (LaaS) solution has been designed to help financial advice firms, like yours, build a compliant lending business, to help your clients get the best advice on all their lending needs and save thousands of dollars annually in the interest they pay on their mortgages and other loan types.

Designed by financial advisers for financial advisers: We provide everything you need to offer lending to your clients and build an additional recurring revenue stream from your client base.

Build your own lending business: Rather than refer your clients and help build someone else’s lending business, we are helping you build your own lending business that you can control.

Your own lending specialist: You will have access to your own personal Lending Specialist who will assist you every step of the way to make the process of offering lending easy for you and your clients.

Lower risk of losing your customers: By using Centrepoint’s Lending as a Service solution, you avoid the risk of losing your clients, to another lending business.

You own the customer: Our core philosophy is to respect that the client relationship is with the adviser, and we are a service supporting our advisers, not marketing directly to your clients. You are in full control of client ownership and it will always remains with you.


How will your clients benefit?

Who says loyalty is rewarded? Not in the case of homes loans!

Make big savings on their loan costs: The Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) Home Loan Price Inquiry* in 2020 found that loyalty leads to higher loan costs and 94% of customers were paying 0.4% more than a customer taking out a new loan. The longer the customer has had the loan the more likely they would be paying more.

From their trusted adviser: What makes it so much easier to implement your Lending as a Service business is the foundation of trust you have established with your clients through your existing adviser relationship.

Home Loan Price Inquiry*: The ACCC inquiry concluded that borrowers with home loans between:

  • 3 and 5 years old were, on average, paying around 58 basis points above new loan rate
  • 5 and 10 years old were, on average, paying around 71 basis points above new loan rate
  • Greater than 10 years old were, on average, paying around 104 basis points above new loan rate.
Years since loan was established  3 to 5 years 5 to 10 years  Over 10 years
Interest above market   0.58% 0.71% 1.04%
Potential annual savings:
   $500,000 loan balance $2,900 $3,550 $5,200
   $750,000 loan balance $4,350 $5,325 $7,800
   $1,000,000 loan balance $5,800 $7,100 $10,400
