Homeloans Limited, the non-bank lender and diversified mortgage distribution company, says increased broker referrals helped drive a 19 per cent increase in settlements in the 2018 financial year. 

Joint CEO Scott McWilliam said home loan customers were asking their mortgage borrowers to see offers from non-banks.

Shares in Homeloans, which merged with Resimac during the year, were trading higher after it reported net profit for the year to June 30 of $26.2 million, up 40 per cent, on total settlements of $4.3 billion, up 19.4 per cent.

The company is not regulated by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority but by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission

Homeloans said the number of mortgage borrowers in its prime lending book more than 90 days in arrears sits at 8 basis points, below the level of each of the major banks.

Around 60 percent of the book is lent to owner-occupiers, and 40 per cent with investors. Homeloans’ principally-funded loan book reached $8.6 billion, an increase of 30 percent on 30 June 2017.

The results encompass the first full reporting year since the complete integration of Homeloans and RESIMAC.

The Company’s strong performance is attributed to a number of factors including above-system sales growth, a market-leading funding program, quality and improved cost discipline. Homeloans continues to bolster its third-party broker and direct channels, and the results of this approach are evident in the strong settlements growth.

Homeloans continues to be an active issuer in both the domestic and international wholesale funding markets under the RESIMAC brand.

During FY2018 RESIMAC completed $3.5 billion of term funding from five RMBS transactions.

Diversification objectives were successfully implemented and included a $1 billion private placement of RMBS with a new offshore investor, and increased participation of Asia-Pacific and US-based investors.

An additional short-term funding line was established with an offshore bank.
