1. Pricing. The new lower pricing is detailed in the attached rate card. We have cut costs and margin so that on a like for like basis, we now provide more competitive pricing than Pepper Retail. However, there are some key aspects to the pricing you need to be aware of:
a. Differential value proposition to Pepper retail - We retained the best parts of our pricing approach, risk fees only payable on higher LVR loans.
b. Process efficiencies means our customers save - Rates are now considerably cheaper. Pricing is now on a like for like basis lower than Pepper Retail. This means for just about any scenario we can offer a lower cost solution to that of Pepper Retail, in Near Prime and Specialist, this means that either:
- The client pays no risk fee savings considerably in upfront fees, plus we have substantially reduced rates.
- If the client pays a risk fee their rate will be lower than Pepper Retail.
- We can even offer special pricing for a client that would otherwise not pay a risk fee, but is focused solely on rate.
If you are up against a broker that is offering a Pepper retail product, you will be able to offer a lower cost solution irrespective of LVR.
c. The new pricing is available along with a standard commission payable of 0.715% (GST inc) Upfront Commission and 0.165% (Gst inc) trail across the range. Our new rate card is attached for your reference.
