Save your legs


How do you match a loan and lender to your needs? Rather than running around finding out the details of each and every lender and loan, draw on the expertise of Rachael Scherlies, Personal Finance Adviser.

One of the benefits of working with Rachael is the extensive menu of loan options she has at her fingertips. But given such a wide choice, how does she narrow down the options to find the right loan for you?

As an MFAA Approved Finance Broker Rachael, has access to more than 30 different lenders. These include the big four banks, second-tier lenders such as Macquarie Bank, Bankwest and Citibank, and a raft of niche lenders such as Liberty or Pepper, which offer loan options for people who may not meet the lending criteria of the top banks.

When it comes to making loan recommendations, Rachael looks at a number of different factors.

First, she will talk to you, the client, about your goals. This might be to pay off the loan as quickly as possible, or to find a loan with the lowest interest rate possible. They may want a loan with a fixed term, or they may want a facility with a low fee structure. Each client is different.

Rachael will endeavour to give each client three to five loan options and makes sure the options meet their requirements across a range of criteria.

If the borrower has no specific requirements, finance brokers will most often take into account interest rates, how fees impact the life of the loan and how portable the loan is.

While interest rates are the most critical factor, it’s not the only factor. As well as the loan’s fees and interest rates, the lender must also match the client’s unique circumstances.
