One of Australia’s aggregators has added a new lender to its panel.
Yesterday, Aussie announced it would add specialist lender Pepper to its panel.
Aussie executive director James Symond said the addition increases the borrowing options for Aussie customers.
“Pepper’s specialist lending expertise increases the borrowing options for our customers, many of whom may be self-employed or contractors, and don’t meet the current lending requirement of some of our lenders,” he said.
Pepper will be offering a bespoke range of products for Aussie targeted at customers who don’t fit mainstream lending criteria, with dedicated state-based business development managers and direct access to the Pepper Credit team for a more streamlined approval process for borrowers.
Pepper’s group managing director and chief executive, Patrick Tuttle, said the partnership was a “significant milestone” for Pepper.
“With the increasing lending volumes that we have been consistently achieving over the past few months, this announcement will bring even further momentum to new lending as we head into the second half of 2013,” he said.
