Our story

From small beginnings came big things. In 1992, "We'll Save You" meant a lot to us - and almost 30 years later it still does.

Where it all began

From day one, we’ve had one simple thing to say – “We’ll save you”. John Symond meant it back in 1992 when he launched Aussie. And we still mean it today.

It’s what pushed us to do things differently, and why we were the first Australian home loan lender to offer competitive interest rates and free appointments with mortgage brokers.

From the day we took on the big banks and their high lending rates, with a vision of putting progress within reach for Aussies when it came to home ownership, we have recognised that success lies in grasping the opportunities that only come with change.

The Aussie of today

For nearly 30 years, Aussie has adapted and reinvented itself to stay in touch with the way the market and the needs of consumers as they continue to change. Because no one knows Australia like Aussie.

Our success has been forged through change – in fact, it is change that has brought Aussie to where it is today.

Today, our loan book of $70 billion is managed through our growing network of 1000 brokers and 220 stores around Australia. We’ve expanded our offer too – from home loans to business loans, asset finance, home and contents insurance and more.

Lendi Group, which is the ultimate holding company of the Aussie business is owned by numerous shareholders including; banks such as CBA, ANZ and Macquarie Bank, Lendi founders and employees, and a number of Australian institutional investors and sophisticated investors including UniSuper.

We have helped more than 1.5 million Australians get the confidence to follow their property dreams, by finding new ways to support customers throughout their home loan journey everyday.

A lot has changed over the years, but the one thing that hasn’t is our commitment to give Australians a fair go.
