Charities And Consumers To Benefit From Global Financial Service Company Launching In New Zealand
One of the world’s fastest growing financial service companies entered the New Zealand market and is donating part of every sale to local charities.
Goodinvestor has just launched its New Zealand operations (http:// http://www.goodinvestor.co.nz) offering mortgage and credit card financial products.
“Red Cross and cancer research are two areas that will benefit from our decision to set up in New Zealand,” Goodinvestor director and part-owner John Edgar said today. “We operate the same policy in the UK – its part of putting something back into the communities we work in.
“Goodinvestor is offering a 24 hour, seven-day-a-week marketplace for financial products in New Zealand. A customer can go online, or they can call our local financial experts on the telephone, or e-mail us if they want. We want to offer customers the product best suited to them, when it suits them,” Mr Edgar said.
The establishment of the service is also a vote of confidence in the New Zealand economy. Mr Edgar said that New Zealand’s high levels of home purchasing, net immigration gain, competitive interest rate market, increasing use of online financial services and its strong economy were all reasons that made this an attractive place to provide financial services.
Goodinvestor.com is an award-winning financial services company based in the United Kingdom, with operations in Canada and soon in the United States. The company offers insurance, securities brokerage services, mortgages, loans and investment products.
While Goodinvestor will initially specialize in mortgages and credit cards in New Zealand, it will look to expand its services here.
A feature of Goodinvestor operations is its donation of money to local charities for every completed purchase made.
Mr Edgar said Goodinvestor was confident its New Zealand operations would be well received by local home buyers, given high levels of home purchasing, the competitive interest rate market, increasing use of online financial services and the relative strength of New Zealand’s economy.
“We consider New Zealand a potentially strong market for Goodinvestor, which will be partnered by local financial advisors E-Loan,” Mr Edgar said.
“We believe New Zealand home buyers, just like those overseas, will relish the benefits of goodinvestor.co.nz, both in the choice of the best mortgage product for them and the convenience and ease of use that the service offers,” he added.
