The Non-Bank Space is Pulling Together!

Non-banks voice support for brokers following RC

Brokers that manage their own investor funds can join the growth in market share.

Semper is inviting introducers that currently manage investor’s funds in mortgage-secured and asset-backed commercial lending to participate in a community that will enable them to increase market share, diversify products and increase profitability.


The key benefit to commercial Non-Bank lending is a level of flexibility, speed and certainty that cannot be obtained by traditional lenders. However, some Non-Bank lenders may find themselves hamstrung by Bank facilities that force them to apply bank-like risk profiles to their products (so the banks can securitise pools of loans).

At Semper, we know there are many out-of-the-box borrowers who find themselves unable to source funding at critical times due to lending restrictions. Frustrated finance brokers who have access to private investor funds may end up introducing these borrowers to their investors for a trail or commission. 

Where this is done on a small scale, outside the NCCP space, and provided the investors themselves are making credit decisions, this process remains largely outside of the AFS Licensing regime. However there are risks to introducers and investors, and the result is usually a lumpy, concentrated risk exposure to predominantly asset-based borrowers.

What has been missing until now is a means by which to bring introducers and investors into a community on a common platform where many new benefits can be realised. 

expressions of interest

Semper are inviting an expression of interest from the following:
  • Investors managing their own private mortgage loans, perhaps introduced by brokers or other lenders;
  • Introducers who source loans that they manage for, or with, investors – perhaps on an ad-hoc basis;
  • Lenders with small portfolios with their own AFS License (or operating as a CAR) who suffer treasury constraints.
If you are one of the above, then Semper expects to offer you a litany of benefits.


  • For investors:
    • The capacity to achieve higher leverage without increased risk exposure to current experience
    • A recycling of capital for re-use while gaining the leverage mentioned above
    • The ability to share risk with other investors
    • The opportunity to employ investment capital for longer tenure products without losing the leverage of recycling of capital mentioned above.
The result for investors is leveraged income and leveraged capital without leveraged risk.
  • For Introducer / managers of investor capital:
    • Recycling of investor funds to relend before the end of the loan period and therefore
    • A growth in loan volumes under management and an increase in ongoing loan management fees
    • An increase in loan product offerings for borrowers
    • The opportunity to offer larger-size loans
    • As much or as little centralized credit and post loan management support as desired to grow your business, paid for by the borrower
    • The ability to earn long-term income trails from loans on-sold to a different class of investor with capital ready to be redeployed.
The result for introducer / managers is the ability to grow loan books through investor leveraged capital, to grow trails and offer a wider range of longer tenure loans. It also offers the capacity to avoid licensing issues. If you are interested in discussing all or any of the above without obligation, please call one of the below representatives to book a time to chat.
