Global Finance is one of the leading mortgage brokers in Auckland, New Zealand. Since 1999 we’ve been helping Kiwis realise their dreams by helping them get loans to purchase their first home, investment property, business, or commercial property. We are not just mortgage brokers, we think of ourselves as mortgage advisers because we take the time to understand the needs and goals and tailor each loan to fit the customer unique situation. We negotiate with lenders on their behalf to ensure they receive the best possible deal for the loan, we also help structure loans so customers can repay the loan as fast as possible without increasing the standard instalment.
The company was founded in 1999 with the vision to help customers not just get a mortgage but also advise them on how to pay it off faster by saving unnecessary interest. Similarly, Global Finance would help customers to get the right insurance which would protect the family home and other assets in unforeseen events – while saving on their insurance premiums as well. Now boasting an acedemically and professionally trained staff of 40 across three branches in Auckland, the founding vision is serving an even greater population more locally.
Global Finance customers have become mortgage free in as little as 7 to 12 years compared to the standard 30-year term that banks provide to mortgage customers. Global Finance also helps its customers at the time of an insurance claim. As a result, its claim settlement ratio in respect of life insurance is 100%.
Born to Save
Keeping with this philosophy, in April 2011, Global Finance presented to the then Prime Minister John Key on how to reduce NZ debt. The suggestions were incorporated (to an extent) in the New Zealand Budget to increase national savings. GFS has received praise from dignitaries such as John Key, Phil Goff and Dr Jackie Blue. The company was mentioned in the Notices of Motion in the New Zealand Parliament during the years 2009, 2010 & 2012 in appreciation of its services.
