BNK Key Metrics

BNK Key Metrics

The Group has achieved net revenue growth of 8.1% YoY coupled with operating expenses reduction of 4.3% YoY contributing to growing profitability. The Group’s total loan book grew to $50.1b at the end of the quarter and surpassed the critical $50b milestone. The growing scale of the Finsure aggregation business creates great opportunity for the BNK Bank and Better Choice businesses to manufacture high-margin products and continue to grow loan assets. 

The Group ended the quarter with a strong Group balance sheet with $83m of cash and liquid holdings and a capital adequacy ratio of 21.8%. 

Aura Group is proud to have been associated with the Finsure aggregation business since inception and remains a supportive shareholder of BNK Group.

In addition to the metrics above, Finsure currently has 1,816 accredited brokers, a year on year (“YoY”) increase of 10.7%.

Finsure Aggregation Update

Finsure achieved another record quarter of both settlements and broker recruitment with settlements accelerating to $4.61b up 32.9% YoY eclipsing last quarter’s record-breaking levels and net broker recruitment of 76 bringing total brokers to 1,816 at quarter-end. Finsure’s market share continues to grow through 1QFY21 recording an all-time monthly record of $1.75b in settlements during September 2020, an annualised run rate now in excess of $20b pa. 

Loan lodgements during the quarter surpassed $11b with 24,900 loans lodged for the first time up 31% YoY and 6% quarter on quarter. These figures are good forward-looking indicators for the business. With record low-interest rates, Finsure expects continued buoyant demand for residential mortgage finance.
