Assetline Capital

When a developer was seeking construction funding to build 14 townhouses in Albion, Victoria, he reached out to Assetline Capital. He owned the site unencumbered, having purchased it pre-Covid, but did not want to pre-sell any of the stock as he believed he would get a better price by selling on completion.

Assetline Capital provided a cash out of 55% against the land value and funding for the project with 65% LVR (based on gross realisation, net of GST). The project was completed in 15 months after which the borrower refinanced the construction loan into a residual stock loan with Assetline.

Key deal terms:

  • Term: 18 months
  • Loan Amount: $6.33 million
  • Product Solution: Construction
  • LVR: 65%
  • Location: Albion VIC

Important changes to ANZ's commercial lending policies


We are pleased to announce important changes to ANZ's Commercial lending retail policy threshold.

Under regulatory reforms, the Australian Prudential Reporting Agency (APRA) allowed Australian Deposit Institutions to increase their Commercial lending retail policy threshold from the current limit of less than $1 million, to a limit of less than $1.5 million.

ANZ will implement this change from 1 August 2023.

What is changing?

The changes mean that Small Business Banking policies will apply to customers with total business lending (TBL) of less than $1.5 million except for Agribusiness, Pharmacy or Childcare customers where the current threshold of less than $1 million will continue to apply.

Benefits to you and your clients

Benefits to your clients include access to ANZ streamlined lending solutions and a simpler risk appetite.

Business Banking policies will still apply to customers with TBL of $1.5 million or more.


Effective from 1 August 2023, the Commercial Property Investment Policy will be updated to offer your clients greater flexibility when seeking commercial property investment funding.

What is changing?

  • Maximum loan term of 5 years with interest only repayments for the full term of the loan. The interest only period is not to exceed the lesser of the lease term (exclusive of options) or 5 years.

  • Security must be standard commercial property, with strip retail or CBD centre retail restricted to a 55% LVR and all other standard commercial assets at a 65% LVR.

  • Serviceability will be completed via the interest cover ratio (ICR) which must be greater than or equal to 1.5x and is based on the actual rates offered to the customer. There is no longer a requirement to fully amortize the loan over the lifespan of the loan.

Who is eligable?

  • For TBL of up to $1.5 million on ANZ Business Loans.

  • Commercial property investors looking to purchase a commercial property to lease to a third-party. Not suitable for owner-occupied.

  • All applications are subject to eligibility criteria and credit approval.
