Aussie is the biggest broking brand in Australia.

History of Aussie 

Aussie was established in 1992 by John Symond and his nephew James. Together, they started a journey with a mission to transform the Australian mortgage market.  

In 2021, Aussie merged with mortgage fintech Lendi to form the Lendi Group. It’s a union that industry experts described as “a very powerful combo.” 

Over the years, Aussie has been at the forefront of providing Australians access to over 20 of the country’s leading lenders and over 3,000 loan products. To date, the company has helped 1.5 million Australians buy their dream home.
