A listed Australian mortgage aggregator has announced a new partnership with a property group, allowing brokers to provide property investment expertise to clients.
In a statement yesterday, eChoice revealed that it had formed a partnership with Blue Wealth Property.
eChoice general manager of products and services Kon Shizas said the organisation’s partnership with Blue Wealth Property allows brokers to offer specialist investment property expertise to their clients where a dual level of service involving both broker and client is encouraged.
“This alliance is not simply about income diversification, but allows brokers to offer clients the opportunity to be educated and empowered about exactly where the client should invest in property, as an integral part of making a more confident financial decision,” Mr Shizas said.
In an industry rife with property spruikers, eChoice said it was important for the group to join forces with a respected organisation where risk management and an ethical approach were paramount.
“As the only property company in the country with an independently audited property selection model, this is a true partnership where the central focus of all the parties involved is what’s best for each individual customer,” Mr Shizas said.
“Blue Wealth Property are an established player in this space and clients can now benefit from having access to their comprehensive industry experience and cutting-edge research, which is an enormous boost in the current market where conditions can change so rapidly.”
Blue Wealth Property CEO Tony Hayek said the shared emphasis on ongoing quality assurance throughout service delivery was central to the company’s partnership with eChoice.
“We are looking forward to working with more eChoice brokers to assist their clients with investigating investment opportunities that are not only financially sound, but are opportunities they understand,” Mr Hayek said.
“This ensures there is an appropriate and prudent level of due diligence behind their ultimate decision.”
eChoice has cemented six new industry partnerships in 2015 as it continues to enhance the quality product and service offerings for its expanding network of brokers.
