Adelaide's Bernie Lewis turns 25

by Mackenzie McCarty03 May 2012

Adelaide-based financial services business Bernie Lewis has turned 25, after a long journey of growth since it was founded by mortgage broker Bernie Lewis in 1987.

The group, which now has almost $2.8m in mortgages and funds under advice, has grown, diversified and consolidated over the period, and also lost founder Bernie in a plane crash seven years ago.

Executive chairman of the group, Mark Lewis, said one of the most significant decisions for the business was becoming an 'integrated advice' offering for South Australian clients.

"Just as Bernie believed some 20 years earlier that there was a better way to get the right home loan, we also believe that there is a better way to meet all of the important financial needs of clients," he said.
