St.George continually reviews its products to ensure we meet the expectations and requirements of our customers. To streamline our product offering, effective Tuesday 31 July 2018 applications for new Consumer or Business Lending will no longer be accepted for Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSFs). This means:

  • The St.George Super Fund Home Loan will be removed from sale, and
  • St.George Business Lending to a SMSF for buying residential investment or commercial properties will no longer be permitted.

Existing SMSF lending

  • We will continue to service customers with existing SMSF loans as allowable under our Credit policy, including:
    • splitting loans,
    • switching loan products, and
    • extending loan term.
  • Effective Tuesday, 31 July 2018, we will no longer permit:
    • switching from principal & interest repayments to interest only, or
    • extending existing interest only terms - loans will need to revert to Principal and Interest

ANZ Asset Finance Update

CHANGES TO RETAIL LENDING PRACTICES

Effective Saturday the 14th July ANZ will be introducing changes to our requirements for living expenses.

What is Changing?
ANZ is expanding the living expenses field and other expenses field on Asset Finance applications.

There will be additional fields included in the ANZ Asset Finance Portal under the "living expenses" and "other expenses" section. This will allow you to better capture the financial position of borrowers when submitting an Asset Finance application.
These additional fields include detailed descriptions of what expenses should be included in each field - "Living" and "Other" expenses.

For offline brokers application forms have previously been uploaded on the ANZ Commercial Broker Hub.

Reminder***
Applications submitted via the old form will not be accepted. If submitted via the old form the application will be referred back to the broker and require resubmission via the new form.

A maximum of 10 living expenses and 4 other expenses can be included in the application.
*This will be for individual sole/trader applications only.

Why ANZ is Changing?
Making inquiries into a customer's financial situation is an integral part of responsible lending obligations for both brokers and lenders. This change will assist in providing a more accurate record of living expenses for individuals.

A briefing pack has been attached which will assist you with understanding the changes that have been made.
We thank you for your continued support and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your ANZ Broker Account Manager.
