How Austbrokers Sydney can help with Commercial and Consumer Finance - Kevin Wickenden


Kevin Wickenden is a director of Laurentide Financial Services Pty Limited. The company was incorporated in July 1988, representing the union of finance brokers with a total of 30 years experience in the finance industry, specialising in motor vehicle and equipment finance.

Laurentide is now one of the largest finance brokerage firms in Australia and is a fully integrated finance brokerage firm offering a complete range of finance products for both businesses and consumers. Clients range from individuals and sole traders to large companies and government departments.

Despite their growth, personal service has always been their priority. So much so that when you deal with Laurentide, your transaction is always personally overseen by a director.

The firm holds accreditation with most financiers in the Australian market including principal and agency agreements with three of Australia's biggest banks. This, along with the volume of business they introduce to their funders, results in cheaper rates for clients and enables them to assist with the most complex transactions. Laurentide also has a separate mortgage division, Laurentide Mortgage Solutions, to offer clients Residential and Commercial Mortgage facilities.

This arguably places the firm at the leading edge of their industry and well positioned to provide a professional service to you and your business.

"Among my favourite memories are dealing with two clients, one in the printing industry and one in the commercial fit-out industry. Both companies commenced trading in the late 1980's similar to ourselves. In these difficult times both were in need of unsecured finance to acquire machinery and technology to enable growth. Laurentide was able to provide this service when their banks were not and both clients remain loyal to Laurentide today."
