That’s a wrap on 2021 and what a year it’s been for the Nodifi team and partners!
Here are some top standouts over the last 12 months that have made 2021 so memorable.
Nodifi Relationship Manager, Liam Sutcliffe shortlisted for Best Aggregator BDM
The annual Better Business Awards, which recognises top talent in the industry, commended Liam’s continuing support in changing, busy and all-in-all, strange times.
Commenting on the shortlisting, Liam acknowledged the whole team’s effort.
“What’s most pleasing is how the team rallied through a testing time – this recognition reinforces the contributions of each team member.
“It’s proving to be an exciting time at Nodifi with a raft of new initiatives set to launch.
Nodifi gets a fresh new look
In a watershed moment for the business, Nodifi rolled out a new brand, in a bid to better align with the current climate, defining what Nodifi truly stands for, and to highlight its partner-centric approach to the wider industry.
The new branding showcases our core values and steadfast determination in bringing usable financial products to our partners though innovative technology.
Nodifi CEO, Tom Caesar, made it clear that evolving with our partners and the industry is important.
“The new branding symbolises a solid foundation in an ever-changing climate – two things that both the team and our partners need to and can rely on.”
Set rates option rolled out for all consumer asset finance products
The decision to provide set rates for all consumer asset finance products [through Nodifi] gave mortgage brokers the confidence to offer consumer asset finance, whilst being adequately remunerated for their work – something that had declined since the introduction of best interest duty regulations.
This was in response to feedback from the broker community, aligning with Nodifi’s partner-centric approach, providing mortgage brokers with the tools they need to confidently offer a broader range of financial services.
Nodifi’s lender panel grows with the addition of Resimac Asset Finance
The subsidiary of non-bank lender Resimac Group joined more than 40 other lenders on the panel, further diversifying options for platform users.
The addition of Resimac Asset Finance further strengthens the extensive product portfolio, in a bid to provide the best and most diverse loan products available to Nodifi partners.
Nodifi shortlisted for Technology Platform of the Year
In a year of industry-wide record highs, the Australian Broking Awards shone a spotlight on noteworthy individuals and organisations.
Annie Kane, editor of The Adviser, commented: “The finalists this year should all be commended for their perseverance, their passion and their professionalism in an extremely busy period.”
Nodifi CEO treks Larapinta Trail for mental health
Stretching 223 kilometers in Central Australia, the Larapinta Trail is as grueling as it is spectacular.
Tom Caesar made the journey over seven days with the goal of raising awareness and reducing stigma for Australians affected by mental health issues in an initiative by Breakthrough Mental Health Research Foundation.
Tom achieved 109% of his goal, an outstanding effort which contributed to the $60,000+ the group raised.
“It’s great to see the level of exposure mental health has received in recent years, however there’s a long way to go – in my opinion, prevention is the best cure for any disease”, commented Tom.
Elders chooses Nodifi for asset finance
Leading agribusiness Elders expanded its finance products offerings by giving its broker channel access to Nodifi.
The partnership bolsters Elders’ commitment to providing comprehensive solutions to its network and catering to the needs of customer expectations.
To date, the broad Elders network is relishing the new suite of products, further solidifying its place as Australia’s leading agribusiness.
New Nodifi platform rolls out
A big event for the Nodifi development team, the new version of the platform is modernised for significantly smoother data entry and general use, creating a more user-friendly platform.
The new platform also allows for instant integration with existing partner systems through API (application programming interface), amongst a raft of other new integrations.
Today’s Nodifi platform provides a solid foundation for fast and efficient future growth – a core value of the business.
Personal loan products added to the platform
The addition of personal loan options for Nodifi partners provides even more strings to an already heavily-laden bow.
November’s announcement rectifies something that has been overlooked by many fintech service providers.
With mortgage brokers rapidly modernising, personal loans products haven’t always been available at short notice – until now.
The last 12 months have been nothing short of a blast for the team at Nodifi HQ and wider community, something that, at the beginning of the year, was not completely predicted – or predictable.
Australia’s impressive rebound from the pandemic’s effects in 2021 has bolstered the industry, giving way to opportunities and strengthened relationships.
Equally as important as numbers, is feedback. The platform and team behind it have received continued support and praise from our partners on an increasing basis.
It’s the numbers and commendation over the last year that have set 2022 to be a cracking next chapter.
