ABOUT SCOUT FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS

What differentiates us is our 17 years of industry experience in the Banking & Finance sector. Having worked for one of the four major banks, we were frustrated in having to push a limited number of loan products, knowing full well that the market could offer our clients better options. At Scout Financial Solutions we offer you enduring solutions; searching the market and comparing products to find the right loan to suit your needs. Think of us as your “loan expert” helping you to understand the features, fees and charges of a loan so that you can make an informed decision. We will act as the intermediaries with the lender, keeping you up-to-date each step of the way to ensure you find the right loan with ease.

We have founded our business on enduring relationship-based client care. Which means supporting clients from initial contact through to settlement and beyond. We understand that your relationship with a broker does not end when you get the keys to your property. Our open door policy means we are here to support you through your changing circumstances – whatever life throws your way. Why limit yourself to one bank when buying a property is one of the biggest financial decisions you will make in your lifetime?

OUR VISION

We aim to be known as the TOP trusted financial brokering business in Australia. We pride ourselves on customer service – going the extra mile to offer that WOW Factor and provide simplicity to what can be a complex process. Our team is approachable, understanding, empathetic.
