Major bank launches online hub for brokers

by Julia Corderoy14 May 2015
Westpac has launched a new information hub for brokers through its online Business Focus portal, which will help brokers assist clients with any enquiries they may have around the 2015 Federal Budget.

The budget-specific insights and analysis were launched yesterday on the Business Focus website, and include a series of “What the budget means for...” videos for a number of customer segments and articles covering the overall effect of the budget as well as the implications for each state.

Westpac’s general manager of broker distribution, Tony MacRae says this will provide brokers with a great opportunity to demonstrate to their customers how they can deliver a value-add service.

“Westpac is proud to support Australian Home Owners, and we are committed to providing more engaging tools for brokers to have great conversations with home loan customers following last night’s Federal Budget announcement,” he said.

“In fact, Westpac will provide ongoing insights throughout the month of May with a series of customer segment ‘what does the budget mean’ videos, and we have enlisted Westpac Chief Economist, Bill Evans and Westpac Director Senior International Economist, Huw McKay to provide expert commentary. 

“Ultimately, Westpac is committed to being the No.1 bank and lender for overall broker service and value in Australia, and in providing supportive tools recognises the importance mortgage brokers play as true home loan advisers to many Australian home owners at this key time of the year.”
