Lending & Finance

There are a myriad of loans available to prospective borrowers and our job at First Financial is to help you weigh up the pros and cons of all the various options. Knowing what property loan, leasing arrangement or investment loan suits your circumstances is the job of a lending professional who will take the time to explain the fine print so you understand the loan you are entering.

Home Loans

Buying a home will be one of your most significant borrowing commitments. First Financial can help you choose a licensed provider, negotiate the interest rate, read the fine print and check that the product suits your circumstances.

Commercial Loans

At First Financial we pride ourselves on our ability to support small to medium enterprises and big business with their commercial finance requirements. Whether it is inventory finance, cash flow finance, an overdraft or even thinking of purchasing a factory, we can help. We have access to a wide range of lenders specialising in commercial finance to ensure we get the best result for you.

Investment Loans

Borrowing to invest is a popular way to accumulate wealth over the long term. Although it is not for everyone, for the right individuals it can be a very worthwhile strategy. Borrowing to invest is most commonly used to purchase an investment property, although some will prefer borrowing to invest in shares or perhaps even through their Self-Managed Super Fund. Borrowing to invest is also a popular strategy to minimise taxable income. This is achieved where the income received on your investments does not cover the loan payments, allowing you to claim a tax deduction for the shortfall.

Leasing

A car for personal or business use is a necessity for work or home. Getting to work, dropping the kids off at school or preparing for your next trip away, we can assist you with a lease or hire purchase that suits your budget. Looking for your next car?

Debt Management Service

Borrowing Money

Borrowing money and/or obtaining credit is simple these days and as a result debt has become an accepted part of modern life. We’re able to assist in managing and/or consolidating your debt liabilities.

 

Making Regular Repayments

Making regular repayments is an important part of debt management. Whether you have consolidated your various debt commitments into one amount or are paying separate entities, maintaining a regular repayment schedule shows responsibility. Let’s not avoid this issue, lenders make money out of lending to you and want you to borrow.

 

Receiving Quality Advice

Receiving quality advice in what you should borrow as opposed to what you can borrow, is an important part of a broader financial plan.

Come and have a chat with one of our qualified advisers and we can help you prepare a sustainable repayment strategy, manage debt repayments and look into debt restructuring as well as business financing and lending.
