Whether your customer is a first homebuyer, a seasoned property investor, or looking to release the equity in their home, there’s a Bankwest home loan that’s right for them.

As a broker, we’re dedicated to you - finding ways to make your job that little bit simpler and easier. We’re making big strides in our digital capabilities, with the most recent launch of our Home Lending Portal allowing brokers to track real-time status and critical information on current home loan applications as well as monitor existing loans and access a range of other helpful information.

When Connective entered the industry in 2003, we started with a vision: to create a business model that allows mortgage brokers to make substantially more profit. We set out to develop an aggregation model that we, as mortgage brokers ourselves, would see the value of joining and be proud to be a member of. What makes us different is our unique business model operating on a fair and transparent flat monthly fee, as opposed to commission sharing of the outdated aggregators.

Uniquely, you ‘own’ your trail book, and you are free to leave at any time without penalty. Without ‘handcuff’ agreements, we must always deliver exceptional support and business services that help you succeed, and this underpins all we do. All of this and more is why more than 2,800 leading mortgage brokers have chosen to join Connective to help them achieve their business goals.
