Resi bringing more solutions in a tougher credit environment

With lender credit policies continuing to tighten, the most common feedback we are getting from the network is how difficult it is to get a deal set these days. Yet, when we examine our lending flows, less than 10% of our network have submitted a loan to a specialist lender over the last 2 months.

With credit tightening only threatening to continue, we want to make sure every Vow broker has every opportunity to provide a solution for your customers when the mainstream lenders say no. This is why the Resi business not only offers some excellent loans for your blue-chip clients, but also extremely competitive solutions for those that are a bit more "outside the square".

Via their specialist funders, Resi can offer solutions for customers where they may only just miss out on a traditional funding right through to solutions for clients that have had previous credit problems.

With our special pricing on the Renew - restart range, there has never been a better time to start exploring the possibilities of this side of the market place. Some of the features of the Renew - Near Prime range are listed below:

  • Caters for many clients that fall through the cracks of traditional lenders.
  • Flexible approach to loan purposes (examples being tax debts, business purpose and unlimited personal loan consolidation).
  • Commercial treatment of previous (historic) credit issues.
  • Full Doc, Alt doc and construction solutions also available.
  • Exclusive to the Vow group, we have access to pricing where Loan Risk fees are only payable under certain circumstances (higher LVR's and construction loans).
  • We are also waving the establishment and legal fees on all new near prime loans lodged up to the end of October. So, in many circumstances entry costs to the loan will be zero!

Finally, Resi has a very special offer currently available. Submit any application to Resi for our Renew / restart product range (funded by Pepper white label) during the months of September / October 2018 and go into the draw to win an Apple iPad 32GB Wi-Fi (Space Grey) (6th Gen)

  • One entry into the draw per loan application, the more applications, the more entries into the draw.

Winners will be notified via e-mail and in Vow Voice

Important reminder regarding AFCA membership

Important reminder for license-holding (ACLs) and authorised credit representatives who are members of the Credit & Investment Ombudsman (CIO) EDR scheme - to secure Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) membership ASAP.

While AFCA is still accepting late applications, those who haven't applied for membership may be in breach of their obligations of being covered by an EDR scheme. The deadline for CIO members was 31 August, and failure to lodge an application means non-compliance with their ASIC licensing obligations.

For those who have already completed their AFCA application after the 31 August 2018 deadline, AFCA anticipates you will receive confirmation of membership by 21 September 2018.

For those who have not yet begun or completed the AFCA application process, it is strongly advised you complete your application now, as a matter of urgency.

It is important to note that CIO Limited membership must be maintained through the transitional period, including paying membership and other scheme fees in full as required.

Please note, ASIC will be monitoring compliance with existing EDR scheme requirements by financial service providers.

For further information contact AFCA on 1300 56 55 62, or visit their website, www.afca.org.au.
