Australian fintech Finspo, a mortgage broking firm, has branched out into mortgage broking. The company aims to provide its customers with an aggregated view of their banking costs. Finspo announced the launch of its mortgage broking capability within its fintech start-up. The company also unveiled the appointment of a chief lending officer.
Finspo Announces Mortgage Broking Capability Launch
According to Angus Gilfillan, Finspo CEO, Finspo will utilize its mortgage broking arm to help customers negotiate better rates with their lender. It will also help them switch to a different lender for better opportunities.
Gilfillan stated that the free digital app shows users their monthly banking costs and provides them with helpful insights on savings. These insights will be built on proprietary algorithms that analyze both the market and the customers’ data to identify saving opportunities.
The Finspo home loan service would help the customer save by making changes to their home loan. The insight feature called ‘Rate my Rate’ would help figure out if customers can repay their home loan or not. This would in turn help customers connect to a Finspo home loan consultant to get products with better market pricing.

Its digital app will provide customers with a monthly aggregated overview of their banking costs across multiple providers and products. It will also offer personalised insights on where and how users can save money on interest and fees, as well as guides users on how to save and secure better home loan rates.
