Another lender has announced severe foreign investment restrictions amid growing fears about fraud and money laundering

    I don't get it. If the issue is verifying employment & ID within the current pricing structure, why not apply an additional fee and take the extra steps to verify? Lenders seem intent on shutting down a large & profitable area of lending, simply because others have. Recent publications revealed these loans have a lower arrears rate, and being 80% LVR or less, they are well secured. It's a niche for a prudent lender.

    Consider that LVRs of 80% of less can be achieved by using loan capital from other fraudulent loans. The credit risk is hidden by a merry go round of fraudulent loans between institutions.
