A leading aggregator has expanded its panel with the addition of a non-bank lender.

PLAN Australia has announced it will add Mortgage Ezy to its panel. Chief executive Trevor Scott said a diverse lending panel was becoming increasingly important to brokers.

"Today brokers face a challenging and highly competitive mortgage market where access to a diverse and extensive product range and diversity is crucial to success. We understand these challenges and strive to provide our members with a full range of products to ensure they can meet the needs of every borrower," he said.

Scott praised Mortgage Ezy for its "aggressive" pricing and product range, and its commitment to third party distribution.

"Our main objective is to support our members and provide them with the right tools to drive business growth and development. Mortgage Ezy is dedicated to brokers and our shared commitment to this industry means a partnership focused on the success of our members," Scott said.

Mortgage Ezy chief executive Garry Driscoll said the move would help the company have a greater impact in the broker market.

"This partnership is an important step for Mortgage Ezy as we look to increase our footprint in the third party distribution sector. We remain exclusively dedicated to third party distribution and our relationship with PLAN Australia bears testament to that," Driscoll said.
