The increasing popularity of New Zealand Home Loans as a home loan provider has been recognised in this year’s Deloitte Fast 50 Awards, announced this week.

The franchise company, which is headquartered in Hamilton, was declared the Fastest Growing Mature Business in the Central North Island and was the only home loan provider to get an award.

New Zealand Home Loans CEO Mark Collins says "this award is great recognition of the efforts of our team nationwide and also our clients who have been spreading the word to others about how New Zealand Home Loans has helped them to become debt free faster."

The award is a testament to the company’s unique proposition says Mark. "We prioritise getting clients out of debt, not into it. This has enabled us to stand out in the market, and grow our business substantially in a tough economic climate."

In the last two years alone, the number of New Zealand Home Loans branches nationwide has increased from 47 to 60, and this financial year is on track to lend a new record of more than $1 billion to New Zealanders.

"Our model seems to be striking a chord with Kiwis who are treading carefully in today’s economic conditions and housing market, and making every penny count," says Mark Collins.

"People are saying they are coming to New Zealand Home Loans because we don’t just lend money and leave the hard work of paying it off solely to them. They get ongoing advice, support, tools and reviews to manage and reduce their debt, and create wealth."

The wholly New Zealand owned and operated franchise company was set up in Hamilton in 1996 and now has branches throughout New Zealand. Mark Collins says the company’s increasing popularity as a solid franchise opportunity has been a big factor in its growth. New Zealand Home Loans has a steadily growing nationwide network of 60 branches. Twelve new branches have opened in the last year, in:

Auckland Metro

Rodney

West Auckland

Auckland Urban

Pakuranga

Hamilton South

Hamilton Metro

Dunedin Metro

Ashburton

Timaru

On July 1 New Zealand Home Loans became 100 per cent owned by Kiwi Group Holdings (who also own Kiwibank).
