A Queensland-based credit union has announced a new partnership with a listed Australian aggregator.
Queensland Police Credit Union Limited (QPCU) has announced it will be partnering with AFG, becoming one of the only Queensland-based mutuals on its panel.
QPCU sales and distribution executive manager Lee Slattery said he saw AFG and its brokers as key partners that will be essential to providing QPCU’s lending products to new and existing eligible members.
“We see brokers and the unique benefit they offer customers as a critical part of our future growth and essential in providing our members with more ways to do business with us.
“We consider AFG an ideal partner for us because they understand Queensland and have a great link with our existing membership of police, emergency services, health workers and public servants.
“With this partnership in place, we hope brokers see QPCU as a real alternative for eligible members across Queensland who are looking for great products, rates and personal service from a lender that is member- focused and always looking to give back to its community,” he said.
AFG’s Queensland state manager Beccy Ras said AFG has over 500 mortgage brokers servicing all areas of Queensland, which will mean QPCU members throughout the state will have the benefit of being able to access QPCU’s unique range of products and services through a local expert.
QPCU chief executive Grant Devine said regional members would benefit from access to accredited brokers trained in QPCU products, and able to provide convenient face-to-face service.
