Connected Finance puts “YOU” the customer at the centre of every thing we do and CONNECTS you to the best finance options and the right professionals to help you achieve your goals.

We take the time to understand your situation, what’s important to you and what your goals are to tailor the very best home loan options for you.

We will help you understand your home loan options, find the right home and find the best loan.


When was the last you reviewed your interest rate and fees on your loan?

Is your existing Home or Investment Loan structured the way you want it?

If you could save money, time and make your banking & finance more convenient would you?

Refinancing can provide many benefits by using the equity in your home for such things as consolidating debts, buying an investment property, undertaking home improvements, buying shares or simply looking for a cheaper home or investment loan, rest assured we can find you the best deal and help you save money, time and make your banking and finance more convenient.

Investment Loans

Investment loans are structured in a specific way that allows you to make the most of your assets! An investment plan is one that works toward building your wealth and securing your financial freedom. For some, the future may seem a long way off, but the time to act is now because the future waits for no one. The housing market is generally a seven to ten year cycle: there are always highs, lows and steady patches.

First Home Buyers

A home buyer can obtain financing (a loan) either to purchase or secure against the property from a financial institution via a mortgage broker (that’s what we do!). Features of mortgage loans such as the size of the loan, maturity of the loan, interest rate, method of paying off the loan and other characteristics can vary considerably. It’s always best to speak with us, your mortgage broking professionals, to determine the loan that is right for you.

Commercial Property Loans & Business Finance

Whether your buying a Commercial Property, looking to refinance your existing Commercial Loan to save money on interest rates and fees, or simply need Business Finance to support your business we can connect you to the right lenders with the best deals in the market that suits your needs and goals.

Standard variable & fixed rate loans

The variable rate loan offers more features and flexibility than the basic or “no frills” loan, so the rate is usually slightly higher. Fixed rate loans are set at a fixed rate for a specified period – usually one to five years. The advantage of allowing you to organise your finances and repayments without the risk of rising interest rates is offset by the disadvantage of not benefiting from a drop in rates.

Bridging Loans

A bridging loan may be necessary to cover the financial gap when buying one property before the existing one is sold. This finance is generally secured against your property as you are utilising the equity in your existing property. Usually, bridging loans are short term and more expensive than other types of loans.

Leasing / Plant & Equipment Finance

Whether you’re an individual looking for car finance or a Business looking for a tailored leasing and equipment finance solution, Connected Finance is here to help. We offer a complete range of leasing finance options for individuals and businesses.

Leasing and equipment finance options help your business improve cash flow, save on operating costs, reduce your tax and more. Explore our range of tailored leasing and equipment finance solutions.

Self Managed Super Fund Lending (SMSF)

Self-managed super fund (SMSF) loans are home & commercial loans offered for Australians who wish to invest their superannuation in residential and commercial property. Your Super is a big part of your future financial stability, always invest wisely and think of the long term! If you have done your research and decided an SMSF loan is for you Connected Finance can compare a range of SMSF loans on the market and connect you to the best deal that suits to your investment needs. We can also connect you to the right professionals (Accountant and Financial Planner) to review your position and ensure this is the right investment strategy for you.
