Broker group welcomes non-bank partner

by Rebecca Pike07 Sep 2018

A non-bank lender is strengthening its support of grassroots broker community Finance and Coffee.

By becoming a Gold Partner, Bluestone will be involved in the group’s Experiences and will also work with them to create regular content for members.

Finance and Coffee is a community designed for brokers, run by brokers, which aims to increase knowledge and expertise in the industry.

The organisation began as an online hub for brokers to share scenarios and industry tips via the Finance and Coffee Facebook page, but quickly grew into an industry mainstay with regular broker-focussed events and workshops run across the country.

The value the group provides to the industry is recognised by brokers, lenders and industry bodies alike, with active membership earning brokers five CPD points from the MFAA or FBAA.

For Bluestone the new partnership is a chance to interact directly with brokers and provide additional value by offering greater insights on the near prime and specialist lending spaces.

Royden D’Vaz, Bluestone’s national head of sales and marketing, said, “Working with Finance and Coffee gives us more opportunities to meet with brokers and share our knowledge in a social environment.”

Co-founder of Finance and Coffee, Joel Rozen, said, “We are very pleased to announce Bluestone as Gold Partners of Finance and Coffee.

“Bluestone has been supporters of F/C for a while, so it's great to now have them onboard as Gold Partners.

“Their insight into the near prime and specialist lending space will especially be of value for our community and we're very much looking forward to what we can accomplish together under this partnership.”
