Aussie (formerly Aussie Home Loans) was founded in 1992 by John Symond, who was widely credited with bringing competition to the Australian home lending industry.
Since opening our doors as a simple start-up that aimed to challenge the traditional lenders and make home ownership more affordable, Aussie has become Australia’s leading and best known mortgage broker.
Our customers know and trust John and Aussie and they rely on us to help them through the most important financial decision in their life – buying a home.
The Commonwealth Bank acquired a 33 per cent stake in Aussie in 2008, which it then increased to an 80 per cent stake in 2012, though Aussie continues to be independently operated.
In 2012 we acquired wholesale aggregator National Mortgage Brokers (nMB), the third piece in the Aussie Group's distribution model alongside our mobile and retail channels.
In 2015 Aussie launched Credit Savvy, a consumer website that gives Australians free ongoing access to their credit score and resources to understand and manage their credit reputations.
Today, Aussie has over 1,050 mobile and retail mortgage brokers and 180 retail stores located in all capital cities and regional centres around the country.
Aussie has won The Adviser’s Top Brokerage award three years in a row (2013-2015), the Australian Broking Awards’ Major Brokerage of the Year – Franchise two years running (2014-2015) and the Australian Banking and Finance Magazine’s Best Career Development Program in 2015.
