Newcastle building society's trifecta win over big banks
NEWCASTLE Permanent Building Society is revelling in its win over the four major banks to be named Money magazine's Home Lender of the Year 2015, for the second time in three years.
Money magazine Editor Effie Zahos and research partner CANSTAR cited Newcastle Permanent's "perfectly featured loans with a low rate" among the reasons for the win in a category only won by the major banks, until Newcastle Permanent's first win in 2013.
Newcastle Permanent's Branch Lending Manager in Grafton, Anita Kleyn, said the Money magazine Home Lender of the Year title was another significant mark of consistent excellence in delivering first class retail banking experiences for members.
"We have again claimed a trifecta of endorsements for home lending - Money magazine, the Financial Review's Smart Investor, and more CANSTAR five star ratings for home loan products than any of the major banks.
Newcastle Permanent was also named Money magazine's Personal Lender of the Year 2015, and Building Society of the Year 2015, the sixth win in this category since 2007.
