Thanks for dropping by to meet the amazing team at
MC Sutherland I Cronulla I Wollongong, a family business that's been part of your story for 18 years.
Collectively we have over 150 years in the Financial Services industry.
Flexible and versatile, we also have backgrounds in Education and the Arts, Hospitality and the Trades and we have an international flavour with team members originally from Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, the Philippines, and of course, Australia.
We understand that applying for finance can be daunting and stressful, especially in the middle of a global pandemic.
While interest rates are currently favorable, Australian lenders are as much at sea as the rest of us in this uncertain climate and frequently have to change policies or lending criteria with little notice. The introduction of Best Interest Duty (BID) post the Royal Commission has resulted in stricter compliance regulation, impacting the complexity and timeframes for loan approvals.
At MC SCW we offer the personal touch. The team works together to anchor you throughout the process with each member having their own roles to play in your journey to financial security.

The Engine Room - where the magic happens
Our highly experienced Admin team is there to help you navigate the huge amount of administration involved in the loan process these days. Our Broker Manager will book your appointments and guide you through the extensive documentation required by all lenders to support your application. Our Credit Analysts (CAs) research your scenarios, package your application and submit it. Our Approvals Manager liaises with assessors - who invariably ask more questions - and keeps your application moving in the assessment queue. Our Settlements Officer works with real estate agents, conveyancers and your lender to finally get your loan settled. Finally, our Relationships Managers stay in touch with you moving forward. They'll do an annual pricing check to make sure your loan is still right for you. They're also your first port of call for anything you need post-settlement such as switches or making changes to your rate terms. They'll book a call or an appointment with your broker or financial advisor should you need anything or have any questions or concerns.
