Australasian Mortgage Finance Ltd – AMF
AustralAsian Mortgage Finance Limited (AMF) is building a full-service non-bank residential mortgage business (funded in the capital markets) servicing predominantly foreign residential mortgage borrowers.
AMF is at an advanced start-up stage of development. It has brought together a team of professionals from the finance industry and is developing strategic and service relationships with other service providers. Through relationships that are currently being negotiated, the Company will have access to all the necessary mortgage origination and servicing infrastructure and expects to be able to establish a low-cost and high-margin operating model, with limited capital expenditure requirements.
AMF will arrange financing for, market and originate residential mortgages provided to non-bank borrowers. AMF initially intends to offer first-ranking mortgages over Australian residential property to:
- Foreign investors; and
- Temporary resident visa holder owner occupiers.
The Directors believe there is a clear new mortgage market segment that is substantially undersupplied. This has presented the opportunity to establish a new mortgage finance business initially specialising in funding prime foreign borrowers and recent migrants to Australia.
Australasian Mortgage Finance Ltd – AMFCompany Name
What does the business do and what are its main functions?
AustralAsian Mortgage Finance Limited (AMF) is building a full-service non-bank residential mortgage business (funded in the capital markets) servicing predominantly foreign residential mortgage borrowers. AMF will arrange financing for, market and originate residential mortgages for non-bank borrowers.
What is the innovation and its key features?
Using new technology, AMF plans to check the details of income for each and every applicant no matter where they live internationally. The system’s functionality includes the digital recognition and analysis of foreign bank statements and is a proven system used by one of the major banks. It is the Directors’ understanding that no non-bank funder involved in this market segment has access to credit insurance. Income verification is central to having access to credit insurance.
What is the value proposition of the business’ products and services?
AMF’s products and services provide customers with the following tangible benefits: Access to credit insurance leads to a larger pool of available funding; A larger pool of available funding and a focus on quality of underlying security which enables AMF to finance higher loan amounts at higher loan-to-value ratios; and the provision of higher loan amounts which feeds into lower costs to borrowers while allowing AMF to build and maintain solid revenues by offering a more competitive product.
What market and market segments does the business operate in?
AMF’s business will arrange financing for, market and originate residential mortgages provided to non-bank borrowers, including, but not limited to: Foreign non-resident investor borrowers; Foreign resident borrowers holding an Australian visa; and, over time, other customer market segments not serviced, or under serviced, by banks, including those with reasonable credit histories and secured by Australian property.
What is the business’ stage of development?
AMF is at an advanced start-up stage of development. It has brought together a team of professionals from the finance industry, and is developing strategic and service relationships with other service providers.
Does the business have any key distribution channels?
AMF’s distribution strategy is focused on distributing its products and services via two main intermediary channels: – Property sales agents – Migration agents AMF’s target is to execute at least 20 origination agreements with agents in coming months. Over time, the Company intends to engage with major banks operating in Asia as sources of originations, in addition to traditional domestic agents such as mortgage brokers and aggregators.
What competition does the business face?
AMF competes with other non-bank lending institutions seeking to market and sell residential mortgages to prime foreign borrowers. Due to recent regulatory changes imposed by APRA, loans to foreign borrowers with good credit were previously considered to be conforming (or prime) mortgages, but are now categorised as non-conforming. This has seen a substantial reduction in the level of competition in the foreign investor market segment, with most banks have largely exited the segment.
