State Custodians Mortgage Company has been recognised as the nation’s top non-bank lender at the prestigious 2013 Australian Lending Awards.

The Awards, a joint initiative of The Adviser and RFi, recognise the nation’s best lenders and financial service operators.

State Custodians Mortgage Company took out the prestigious Best Non-Bank Award and highly-regarded Best Online Operator Award. The Company was also a finalist for the Best Innovator and Best Industry Thought Leader Awards.

Heidi Armstrong, CEO of State Custodians Mortgage Company, says the success is attributable to its high quality loan products and innovative approach to meeting changing consumer demand.

“Winning Best Non-Bank Lender is testament to the quality of our products and our innovative approach to customer service,” Ms Armstrong said.

“Non-bank lenders put pressure on the big four banks and help create a competitive home loan market. We ensure that Australians have access to better products and lower interest rates.

Ms Armstrong said that winning the Best Online Operator Award was extremely important given new research showing the growing number of Australians using technology to manage their finances.

“The 2013 Personal Finance Study showed that 85 per cent of Australians prefer managing their finances online,” Ms Armstrong said.

“The internet and mobile technology are transforming the home loan and financial services market - financial institutions must constantly innovate to meet changing consumer habits.

“People want to be able to use the internet to access their financial information and fast - having operated as an online lender for seven years, State Custodians Mortgage Company has always valued innovation and technology.

“We engage with customers using a range of different platforms – from an interactive website to social media, consumer videos, iApps and blogs.

“It is our innovative approach to online operations which has kept us ahead of the game in the online lending market.

State Custodians has consistently outperformed its peers by winning prestigious industry awards.
