Leading mortgage aggregation group Connective has officially launched its retail broking franchise, following a successful eight-month pilot program.
The official launch of iConnect Financial was marked by celebratory functions held in Melbourne and Sydney, and means that brokers from outside the Connective network are now able to join the branded group.
Connective CEO Glenn Lees said iConnect Financial provides an opportunity for brokers who are dissatisfied with their current franchise or independent agreement to be part of an engaging brand that connects with consumers.
“With iConnect Financial, we are looking to replicate what we did in the wholesale space, and that’s to disrupt the market by providing brokers with a better and fairer way to align with a partner that’s committed to growing their business,” he said.
“The iConnect Financial model is based on providing brokers with a fairer agreement, better financial terms and a mutually respectful relationship – all based on our proved performance in wholesale aggregation and the Connective way of doing business.”
Leith Wickstein, head of iConnect Financial, said the pilot program had exceeded expectations and the group is on track to realise its ambitious growth targets.
“We are encouraged by the number of brokers who have expressed interest in joining iConnect Financial, particularly from brokers currently operating under other retail aggregators,” he said.
“Brokers are telling us they are seeking a retail model that provides an engaging brand which generates leads and delivers strong systems and support. We certainly believe iConnect Financial delivers on all these fronts and more.”
