As you are no doubt aware, late last month ASIC finally released its Regulatory Guide RG273: Mort...
Why choose QED
If you are looking to obtain an Australian Credit Licence, then QED Risk Services is the best team for you to join up with. The QED team has applied for more ACLs than anyone else in Australia and has a 99%* success rate with those applications. In an environment where ACLs are getting harder to obtain as ASIC's requirements get stricter, QED Risk Services is the best qualified team to help you.
If you already have your Australian Credit Licence, then you are probably concerned about NCCP compliance. At QED Risk Services, we say that if you're finding compliance difficult, then you're doing it wrong. Within our adaptable set of products and services, there is definitely a flexible solution to assist you with all of your ACL compliance needs and make sure that the "men-in-black" stay away!
* Sometimes, ASIC tells us things about an Applicant that the Applicant didn't tell us themselves. In these cases, we sometimes have to withdraw the application.
What our clients say
"I can already see so much value in utilising QED's services."
Melbourne Mortgage Broker
"Greg & the team, Just a quick note to thank you for your on-going support and in particular most recently as I undertook an audit by ASIC. As a 'one man band' it is very confronting and having your support made this process far less stressful. I would have little hesitation in recommending your services to other ACL holders."
Swift Finance Solutions
"Having been referred to QED Risk Services by a client, I already had high expectations. In the end, the service provided by all the staff at QED Risk totally exceeded my already high expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend their services and moving forward, I personally will continue to use their services for my compliance requirements."
"We requested help with formatting a borrowing power capacity calculator. We're a fan of QED's serviceability calculator and from this we've devised other calculators in our website. I like the fact I can pick up the phone and ring QED with any problem and it's solved straight away. Prompt service and all with a smile."
Singh Finance, NSW
"Thanks so much for forwarding these (broker tools).Thanks again for your input and support...much appreciated."
"I'm extremely pleased and grateful for the work that QED Risk Services provided for my ASIC Credit License. The stress, worry and paperwork were eliminated and we just had to wait on ASIC for the Approval, which was quicker than expected in the end. Thanks to all in the Team at QED!"
Fish4Loans Pty Ltd
"We have recently upgraded our Credit Status from Credit Representative to an Australian Credit Licence holder.
We were initially hesitant to do so due to the fear of the Voluminous Paper Work, Compliance and General Bureaucracy of The Whole Process until QED were recommended to us. We have now been granted our ACL and the Whole Process conducted by QED and all their staff has been faultless. We were able to continue to concentrate on our business throughout the process and QED ensured a seamless transition from start to finish.
They have modelled our Compliance Procedures to reflect how we do business and QED will stay on board to ensure we are always compliant and meet our obligations day to day and in our Annual reporting.
I highly recommend QED just as they were highly recommended to me."
Smith Finance Group
"CompliFast is great! As a one-man band with no business partners or support staff it keeps me accountable and gives me time to work on the business. CompliFast is a friendly reminder that you need to spend adequate time working on the business as much as in the business!"
Dynamic Loans SA
"A BIG thanks to QED for having the foresight to suggest that we pursue an ACL application despite not having an RM with the 'standard' background. We had spoken to other similar firms and had been told we wouldn't be able to apply. So you certainly earned the business with your broader understanding of what can be done."
Nexus Private Home Loans
"I cannot express my thanks enough for all the effort that QED placed into my ACL application & I am so thankful that I found your company when comparing so many different organisations that propose to offer a similar service.
My initial plan was to complete the ACL process on my own, however after countless hours of research it was proving to be a very difficult task, especially when trying to handle all of the other aspects involved in establishing a new company.
From day one I was comforted with the level of confidence, professionalism and expertise that your whole team demonstrated with this process.
QED literally made the process too easy and it was MUCH faster then advised, I am still shocked with how quickly the process was expedited.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending QED Risk Services to anyone in the financial services industry.
I look forward to working with QED for ongoing compliance support & training."
Cyber Finance Pty Ltd
"You know what I like about your company? 1 - The fact that you communicate so clearly; 2 - that you are truly a leader - you had no reason to write this, yet you took it upon yourselves to provide thoughts and ideas without any need for a reward - which places you in a position of providing more relevance that virtually any other provider in the market - aggregators included; 3 - The thought that goes into your comments shows that it has been considered. Please keep up the good work"
Freedom Home Loans
"What some MFAA Broker Members had to say after a QED Compliance Presentation:
'Real-world advice that is factual and relevant to the job'
'Very practical advice'
'I'm a new broker so helped me to better understand my obligations'
'It was easy to follow and had good relevant content'
'Cut through the information to give us the necessary details succinctly'
'Clarification around the much misconstrued aspects of compliance and regulatory requirements'
Just some of the great feedback received when QED helped to share its knowledge with the broker community."
MFAA Broker Members
"Cannot thank Greg, Karen and the team at QED enough for their helpful service.
Certainly professionals in their field and highly recommended."
Australian Secure Capital
"Thanks for all of your hard work, effort and guidance.
Working with the QED team was very easy,"
Potential employment levels are just like servicing - do your own arithmetic! Making sense for Mortgage Brokers out of economic uncertainty.
