Aussie (formerly Aussie Home Loans) was founded in 1992 by John Symond, who was widely credited with bringing competition to the Australian home lending industry.
Since opening our doors as a simple start-up that aimed to challenge the traditional lenders and make home ownership more affordable, Aussie has become Australia's leading and best known mortgage broker.
Our customers know and trust John and Aussie and they rely on us to help them through the most important financial decision in their life - buying a home.
Since launch we have grown our foundational mobile lending business and established a thriving retail channel owned by franchisees, and we are now Australia's largest retail mortgage broker.
We built our business on home loans but today we offer a range of products and services to suit almost every customer, including home loans, insurance, personal loans and deposit bonds.
The Commonwealth Bank acquired a 33 per cent stake in Aussie in 2008, which it then increased to an 80 per cent stake in 2012, though Aussie continues to be independently operated.
