Editorial Martin Wanless 02 9818 8896 firstname.lastname@example.org Advertising Kerry Frances 02 9818 8896 email@example.com the company introduced a new non-government lending program through its subsidiary, Residential Mortgage Acceptance Corporation Limited, (RESIMAC). The NSW Government was subsequently bought out in 2003. “The onset of securitisation as a funding tool meant that mortgage borrowers no longer had to rely on the banks to fund their residential funding needs,” says Mary Ploughman, RESIMAC’s Director of Securitisation. “This meant that consumers had choice and as is always the result of choice and resulting competition, the cost of a home loan reduced significantly. “A number of participants followed soon after, all utilising the US securitisation technology. As more entered the market, fixed income investors also came to understand this as an important alternative investment in the fixed income sector.” Looking ahead Looking to the next 25 years, RESIMAC – which provides an end-to-end integrated approach to loan origination, servicing and management – will continue to diversify the range of financial solutions it offers and the distribution base it uses to sell them. “By utilising the full breadth and depth of our collective expertise to implement our ideals, we can achieve a good return on capital from a commodity business and retain our place as one of the most well respected non-bank lenders in the market,” says Savins. One of the opportunities the company plans to take advantage of is to strategically align and build depth with its key distribution partners to foster relationships that will deliver greater competition with the banks and more awareness for the non-bank segment. “There is a challenge in making consumers and the mortgage broking industry as a whole again realise the benefits of non-bank lenders, a situation not too dissimilar to the early 1990s where non-banks began to gain a profile for being a viable alternative,” says Savins. “The major banks aggressively targeted the non- bank financial sector since the onset of the GFC. This in turn has caused a perception amongst consumers that banks are ‘safer’. “Our predicament was not helped by some non- bank lenders not passing on the bulk of the interest rate reductions announced by the Reserve Bank over the course of 2009. “The fact that RESIMAC never ceased new business lending throughout the GFC, and the longevity of our existence gives us the pedigree to take on this fight.” “ RESIMAC never ceased new business lending throughout the GFC. ” InProfile
