AFG has entered a strategic partnership with the newly-created broking arm of a large real estate group, to help the group grow its broking services nationwide.
After an extensive review of players in the financial services market, Professionals Finance – the broking arm of Professionals, which was launched in January 2015 – saw AFG as the “clear leader” in broker platform delivery.
Andrew Gooding, CEO of Professionals Finance, says he anticipates real long-term value in the partnership.
“As we continue to grow our broking service across Australia, this partnership will help attract new talent to our team. They’ll get great support from a trusted leader, plus the confidence to deliver outstanding finance experiences to our clients,” he said.
“They have strong relationships with consumer groups and are known for their integrity. These factors certainly helped make the partnership decision a whole lot easier.”
AFG state manager for Western Australia and South Australia, Alan Walker says the aggregator is “delighted to be selected by [Professionals Finance] and believe they will deliver a great deal of assistance to the Professionals real estate network.”
