Our Finance Blog

What do you want from a finance blog?

We’re guessing that you want good information about all things finance related.

That’s what we have been told, and therefore we do our best to provide updates on a wide range of topics. We help a lot of first home buyers and have New Zealand’s most popular Facebook Group dedicated to them. We also deal a lot with new build finance and non-bank finance as well as the major banks.

We also like to add some stories too as these often help explain how our mortgage advisers can help.
