  • Why ASAP?

    Why use ASAP Financial Services ?

    Qualities:

    Our qualities include :

    • We work for you  (we don't work for any one bank, lender or franchise group)
    • we don't do loans with EVERY lender, in fact we are selective as to the lenders we will use in terms of service and product mix offered.

    Frankly, the quality of service offered by some lenders is so poor we would not put them forward as a solution to our clients' needs.

     

    Around 8 out of 10 of the loans we place come from our existing referral base and repeat business. We think that means our clients like what we do for them.

    Experience

    We do lots of “Bread and Butter” residential home & investment loan work but have become specialists in the “hard” stuff:

    • Blocks of Units on one title
    • Commercial Construction incl. Specialised security such as Medical and Child Care Centres
    • Small to Medium retail shops and shopping centres
    • SMSF Resi and Commercial
    • Specific holding structures such as Hybrid Discretionary Trusts

    We listen

     

    We listen, learn about and help clarify your needs and goals. Based on that varied input, we provide personalised, quality credit structuring advice in a concise written format. We ensure you understand the options available, regardless of how much time and effort this may take. Should you decide to implement our recommendations we will do most of the paperwork for you, chase the lenders, valuers, solicitors and other parties and keep you informed along the way.

     

    The vast majority of our business comes from satisfied existing clients and their referrals

    Established in 1999

    Between our 6 staff we have 50+ years of financial services experience.

    Thousands of transactions from $10k top ups to relationships exceeding $10 million.

    Our close knit mastermind mentor group settles in excess of 500 million per year. So we are confident someone will know how to get it done in the best way.

    Too big or too small to be a client of ASAP?

    You will probably be right at home with us at ASAP!

     

    Most of our clients are multiple investment property owners, in various types of structures, with net worths ranging from – 500k to well over 20 million.

     

    And, we like to work with First Home Buyers and First Investors - for this is where our Structured Finance Concept can have the most impact in the long term.

  • Rates

    Often we will receive a phone call asking 'what is your best rate?'

    'What is your best rate?'

    Invariably the reponse to such a question is that this is not what ASAP seeks to do for our clients. ASAP Financial Services works with a wide range of lenders to get the best value proposition for YOU.

     

    We can almost guarantee that this will NOT be the lowest rate product in the market for that type. In any product or Service in a free market, there are 3 things you can measure :

     

    a) Price

    b) Quality

    c) Service

     

    Please choose any two that are most important to you. In an efficient market we would argue that it isn't possible to have all three.

     

    While there is latitude in the mortgage market you can not, for example, compare one mortgage manager's "fully featured" loan to a Professional package deal offered by the major lending institutions. It would be akin to comparing an orange and a carrot, while they are both food, and they appear to be the same colour, we all agree they taste different and are consumed in different ways !

    Our Difference

    By using structures that are tax effective (please seek personal tax advice) and cashflow effective, with products that allow flexibility in a changing environment,  allowing  you to grow your asset base more quickly, rate isnt as important as it may at first seem.

    Having said that, the rate you pay will mostly  be market competitive with similar products, we dont recommend products that are not cost effective unless there is a "borrower or scenario" reason to do so.
     

    We believe you will be pleasantly surprised by our uncompromising focus on finding the right match for your financing needs. The vast majority of our business comes from referrals generated by existing happy clients, and we think that speaks volumes for our service. 

    Lenders

    We offer products from a broad range of lenders. At any given time we may recommend one or more over others, dependent on your particular needs and financial circumstances. Talk to us about your specific requirements.

Privacy Policy
Respecting your privacy
We respect your personal information, and this Privacy Policy explains how we handle it. The policy
covers ASAP Financial Services Pty Ltd.

This Policy also includes our credit reporting policy, that is, it covers additional information on how we manage your personal information collected in connection with a credit application, or a credit
facility. We refer to this credit-related information below as credit information.

If you are in a country that is a member of the European Economic Area (EEA), the EU General Data
Protection Regulation 2016/679 (‘GDPR’) governs the way we collect, use, hold, process and disclose
your personal information. Under the GDPR, we are a data controller. We make decisions on how and why your personal information is processed.
What personal information do we collect and hold?
General information
The types of information that we collect and hold about you could include:
•	ID information such as your name, postal or email address, telephone numbers, and date of birth;
•	other contact details such as social media handles;
•	financial details such as your tax file number; and
•	other information we think is necessary.
When the law authorises or requires us to collect information
We may collect information about you because we are required or authorised by law to collect it.
There are laws which require us to collect personal information. For example, we require personal
information to verify your identity under Australian Anti-Money Laundering law.
What do we collect via your website activity?
If you’re an internet customer of ours, we monitor your use of internet services to ensure we can
verify you and can receive information from us, and to identify ways we can improve our services for
you. If you start but don’t submit an on-line application, we can contact you using any of the contact
details you’ve supplied to offer help completing it. The information in applications will be kept
temporarily then destroyed if the application is not completed.
We also know that some customers like to engage with us through social media channels. We may
collect information about you when you interact with us through these channels. However, for all
confidential matters, we’ll ensure we interact with you via a secure forum.
To improve our services and products, we sometimes collect de-identified information from web
users. That information could include IP addresses or geographical information to ensure your use of
our web applications is secure. 

How do we collect your personal information?
How we collect and hold your information
Unless it’s unreasonable or impracticable, we will try to collect personal information directly from you (referred to as ‘solicited information’). For this reason, it’s important that you help us to do this and keep your contact details up-to-date.
There are a number of ways in which we may seek information from you. We might collect your
information when you fill out a form with us, when you’ve given us a call or used our website. We
also find using electronic means, such as email or SMS, a convenient way to communicate with you
and to verify your details1
.
How we collect your information from other sources
Sometimes, we will collect information about you from other sources as the Privacy Act 1988 permits.
We will do this only if it’s reasonably necessary to do so, for example, where:
•	we collect information from third parties about the loan or lease made available to you arising
•	out of the services we provide you;
•	we can’t get hold of you and we rely on public information (for example, from public registers or
•	social media) or made available by third parties) to update your contact details; or
•	we exchange information with your legal or financial advisers or other representatives.
What if you don’t want to provide us with your personal information?
If you don’t provide your information to us, it may not be possible:
•	for us to give you the credit assistance you seek from us;
•	to assist in finding a loan or lease relevant to your circumstances;
•	verify your identity or protect against fraud; or
•	to let you know about other products or services that might be suitable for your financial needs.
How we collect and hold your credit information
We will collect your credit information in the course of you answering the enquiries we make of you
relating to the credit assistance you seek from us. In addition to what we say above about collecting
information from other sources, other main sources for collecting credit information are:
•	your co-loan applicants or co-borrowers;
•	your guarantors/proposed guarantors;
•	your employer, accountant, real estate agent or other referees;
•	your agents and other representatives like the person who referred your business to us, your
•	solicitors, conveyancers and settlement agents;
•	organisations that help us to process credit applications;
•	organisations that check the security you are offering such as valuers;
•	bodies that issue identification documents to help us check your identity; and
•	our service providers involved in helping us to process any application you make for credit
•	through us.
What do we do when we get information we didn’t ask for?
Sometimes, people share information with us we haven’t sought out (referred to as ‘unsolicited
information’). Where we receive unsolicited personal information about you, we will check whether
that information is reasonably necessary for our functions or activities. If it is, we’ll handle this
information the same way we do with other information we seek from you. If not, we’ll ensure we do
the right thing and destroy or de-identify it.

1
 However we’ll never ask you for your security details in this way – if you are ever unsure, just
contact us 
When will we notify you that we have received your information?
When we receive personal information from you directly, we’ll take reasonable steps to notify you
how and why we collected your information, who we may disclose it to and outline how you can
access it, seek correction of it or make a complaint.
Sometimes we collect your personal information from third parties. You may not be aware that we
have done so. If we collect information that can be used to identify you, we will take reasonable steps
to notify you of that collection.
How do we take care of your personal information?
We store information in different ways, including in paper and electronic form. The security of your
personal information is important to us and we take reasonable steps to protect it from misuse,
interference and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Some of the ways we
do this are:
•	document storage security policies;
•	security measures for access to our systems; and
•	only giving access to personal information to a person who is verified to be able to receive
•	that information
We may store personal information physically or electronically with third party data storage
providers. Where we do this, we use contractual arrangements to ensure those providers take
appropriate measures to protect that information and restrict the uses to which they can put that
information.
What happens when we no longer need your information?
We’ll only keep your information for as long as we require it for our purposes. We may be required to
keep some of your information for certain periods of time under law. When we no longer require
your information, we’ll ensure that your information is destroyed or de-identified.
How we use your personal information
What are the main reasons we collect, hold and use your information?
Collecting your personal information allows us to provide you with the products and services you’ve
asked for. This means we can use your information to:
•	give you credit assistance;
•	give you information about loan products or related services including help, guidance and
•	advice;
•	consider whether you are eligible for a loan or lease or any related service you requested
•	including identifying or verifying you or your authority to act on behalf of a customer;
•	assist you to prepare an application for a lease or a loan;
•	administer services we provide, for example, to answer requests or deal with complaints;
•	and
•	administer payments we receive, or any payments we make, relating to your loan or lease.
Can we use your information for marketing our products and services?
We may use or disclose your personal information to let you know about other products or services
we or a third party make available and that may be of interest to you.
We will always let you know that you can opt out from receiving marketing offers.
With your consent, we may disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of
connecting you with other businesses or customers. You can ask us not to do this at any time. We
won’t sell your personal information to any organisation. 
Yes, You Can Opt-Out
You can let us know at any time if you no longer wish to receive direct marketing offers from us. We
will process your request as soon as practicable.
What are the other ways we use your information?
We’ve just told you some of the main reasons why we collect your information, so here’s some more
insight into the ways we use your personal information including:
•	telling you about other products or services we make available and that may be of interest to
•	you, unless you tell us not to;
•	identifying opportunities to improve our service to you and improving our service to you;
•	allowing us to run our business efficiently and perform general administrative tasks;
•	preventing any fraud or crime or any suspected fraud or crime;
•	as required by law, regulation or codes binding us; and
•	any purpose to which you have consented.
•	What are the grounds which we will deal with your personal information under the GDPR?
•	Under the GDPR, we must have a legal ground in order to process your personal information. The
•	legal grounds that we may rely on are:
•	Performance of our contract with you;
•	Compliance with a legal obligation;
•	Where you have provided your consent; and
•	For our legitimate interests: our main legitimate interests for processing your personal
information are: fraud, security, due diligence, business operations and direct marketing.

How long do you keep your information?
We are required to keep some of your information for certain periods of time under law, such as the
Corporations Act, the Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing Act, and the Financial
Transaction Reports Act for example.
We are required to keep your information for 7 years from the closure of accounts, or otherwise as
required for our business operations or by applicable laws.
We may need to retain certain personal information after we cease providing you with products or
services to enforce our terms, for fraud prevention, to identify, issue or resolve legal claims and/or for
proper record keeping.
Who do we share your personal information
with?
To make sure we can meet your specific needs and for the purposes described in ‘How we use your
personal information’, we sometimes need to share your personal information with others. We may
share your information with other organisations for any purposes for which we use your information.
Sharing Your Information
We may use and share your information with other organisations for any purpose described above. 
Sharing with your representatives and referees
We may share your information with:
•	your representative or any person acting on your behalf (for example, lawyers, settlement
•	agents, accountants or real estate agents); and
•	your referees, like your employer, to confirm details about you.
•	Sharing with third parties
•	We may share your information with third parties in relation to services we provide to you. Those
•	third parties may include:
•	the mortgage aggregator through whom we may submit loan or lease applications to lenders or
•	lessors on the mortgage aggregator’s panel;
•	the Australian Credit Licence holder that authorises us to engage in credit activities;
•	referrers that referred your business to us;
•	valuers;
•	lenders, lessors, lender’s mortgage insurers and other loan or lease intermediaries;
•	organisations, like fraud reporting agencies, that may identify, investigate and/or prevent fraud,
•	suspected fraud, crimes, suspected crimes, or other misconduct;
•	government or regulatory bodies (including ASIC and the Australian Taxation Office) as required
•	or authorised by law. In some instances, these bodies may share the information with relevant
•	foreign authorities;
•	guarantors and prospective guarantors of your loan or lease;
•	service providers, agents, contractors and advisers that assist us to conduct our business for
•	purposes including, without limitation, storing or analysing information;
•	any organisation that wishes to take an interest in our business or assets; and
•	any third party to which you consent to us sharing your information.
Sharing outside of Australia
We may use overseas organisations to help conduct our business. As a result, we may need to share
some of your information (including credit information) with such organisations outside Australia. The
countries in which those organisations are located are:
• Philipines
We may store your information in cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. As
electronic or networked storage can be accessed from various countries via an internet connection,
it’s not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held. If your information
is stored in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed.
Overseas organisations may be required to disclose information we share with them under a foreign
law. In those instances, we will not be responsible for that disclosure.
Where we transfer your information from the EEA’ to a recipient outside the EEA we will ensure that
an adequate level of protection is in place to protect your personal information such as putting in
place contractual protections to ensure the security of your information.
How do you access your personal information?
How you can generally access your information
We‘ll always give you access to your personal information unless there are certain legal reasons why
we can’t. You can ask us in writing to access your personal information that we hold. In some cases
we may be able to deal with your request over the phone.
We will give you access to your information in the form you want it where it’s reasonable and
practical. We may charge you a small fee to cover our costs when giving you access, but we’ll always
check with you first. 
We’re not always required to give you access to your personal information. Some of the situations
where we don’t have to give you access include when:
•	we believe there is a threat to life or public safety;
•	there is an unreasonable impact on other individuals;
•	the request is frivolous;
•	the information wouldn’t be ordinarily accessible because of legal proceedings;
•	it would prejudice negotiations with you;
•	it would be unlawful;
•	it would jeopardise taking action against serious misconduct by you;
•	it would be likely to harm the activities of an enforcement body (e.g. the police); or
•	it would harm the confidentiality of our commercial information.
If we can’t provide your information in the way you’ve requested, we will tell you why in writing. If
you have concerns, you can complain. See ‘Contact Us’.

What if you want to interact with us anonymously or use a pseudonym?
If you have general enquiry type questions, you can choose to do this anonymously or use a
pseudonym. We might not always be able to interact with you this way, however, as we are often
governed by regulations that require us to know who we’re dealing with. In general, we won’t be able
to deal with you anonymously or where you are using a pseudonym when:
•	it is impracticable; or
•	we are required or authorised by law or a court/tribunal order to deal with you personally.
What do we do with government-related identifiers?
In certain circumstances we may be required to collect government-related identifiers such as your
tax file number. We will not use or disclose this information unless we are authorised by law. 
Changes to this Privacy Policy
This Policy may change. We will let you know of any changes to this Policy by correspondence via post
or e-mail or you may contact us for a copy of the most up to date policy at any time.
