SMSF advisers judge La Trobe Financial the best for residential property loans

La Trobe Financial has been judged as Australia’s best SMSF provider in the adviser choice category for residential property loans.

These Awards are presented by Self-Managed Super, a finance publication led by Darin Tyson-Chan and the well-known research house CoreData.

The SMSF Service Provider Awards, now celebrating a ten-year anniversary, recognise the leading sector providers of SMSF offerings. The awards are assessed by financial advisers and accountants who specialise in the sector. CoreData’s consultant, Grahame Evans who oversaw the collection and analysis of the adviser feedback, identified that the survey responses were based on a voting sample, so frequency of use and satisfaction determined the winners.

During the award ceremony, Tyson-Chan commented that “La Trobe Financial stood out for its competitive interest rate, easy to understand application process and quality of service.”

La Trobe Financial’s Chief Lending Officer, Cory Bannister, stated “having launched our SMSF loan in 2012, and being one of the few lenders to continue offering this product consistently without interruption during this time, we have built a sizeable portfolio of what are really “super-prime” loans. We have used this experience to refine our policy and process, and are delighted to be recognised as the best provider for our SMSF Residential Loan.”

These awards come off the back of another set of SMSF Awards, this time hosted by the SMSF Adviser, a leading finance magazine published by Momentum Media. In these Awards, La Trobe Financial was recognised as the Best SMSF Lender. These awards are also judged by financial advisers and accountants.
