Global Financial Service Company Launches


Global Financial Service Company Launches To Savvy And Strong New Zealand Marketplace

Confidence in the New Zealand economy and savvy customers were given as “two strong reasons” for global financial service company Goodinvestor.com launching its mortgage and credit card products here.

Speaking today at the launch of http:// http://www.goodinvestor.co.nz, Goodinvestor director and Internet entrepreneur John Edgar said New Zealand was a potentially strong market for Goodinvestor.

“New Zealand has high levels of home purchasing, net immigration gain, a competitive interest rate market, increasing use of online financial services and a relatively strong economy.

“We believe New Zealand home buyers are savvy and should 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 said.

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 private company offers insurance, securities brokerage services, mortgages, loans and investment products, and is one of the world’s fastest growing financial service firms. In less than six months of launching its membership system in the UK it had 10,000 members and has been awarded five stars by both the UK ISA guide and the UK Mortgage guide 5 star sites, an honour rarely bestowed on companies.

Goodinvestor will be partnered by local financial advisors E-Loan, New Zealand’s first online mortgage broker. E-Loan, purchased in November 2001 by financial services webstie provide liquid.co.nz, has more than 20 lenders offering products through its site, and will provide expert advice to customers wanting the best mortgages.

While Goodinvestor will initially specialize in mortgages and credit cards in New Zealand, it will look to expand its services here.

“We are 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.

Mr Edgar said the worldwide trend was towards online financial services and particularly to services which provided customers with a choice of products to suit individual needs.
