At Clever Finance Solutions we know that getting a loan is a daunting and challenging experience, fraught with jargon, too many options and people trying to sell you things you don’t know you want or need. It is why we focus on you, your financial goals and making sure a loan fits your lifestyle. We pride ourselves on understanding your unique situation and pinpointing the right loan from over 30 banks, non-banks and lenders, some with no physical presence.

Our two main aims are to secure a loan that works best for you, and to make the application process as easy as possible. We don’t try and do it all, preferring to specialise in lending. But, along the way, we have built a vast network of professionals who can assist you with many other aspects of your property journey including conveyancers, financial planners, buyers agents, property managers and insurance brokers.

Although we specialise in multi-property investment portfolios, Clever Finance Solutions provides a range of loan services from first-home buyers to funding for business. We are home owners, business owners and investors ourselves, so we understand what you need and want. Let us help you reach your financial goals.

We use the major bank and non-bank lenders and will go beyond the normal to get you the best finance solution. This includes residential property mortgages, commercial property mortgages, business finance, equipment finance and leasing, cashflow finance etc.

We operate Australia wide and are proactive with our clients, encouraging annual reviews of their portfolios, to help keep you focused on your goals and to stay abreast of changes in the finance area.
