Our high-quality, great-value products and services were recognised with a range of awards in 2017.

Friday, 22 December, 2017

As recognition for offering one of the country’s best value personal loans, we capped 2017 off with two Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Personal Loans. 

The 2017 Mozo Experts Choice Awards presented Newcastle Permanent with gongs in two categories: the Unsecured Personal Loan and Excellent Credit Personal Loan.

The non-entry-based Experts Choice Awards are a Mozo initiative that recognise Australia’s best-value Personal Loan products to help Australians save money and choose better products.

Newcastle Permanent CEO Terry Millett said winning the awards recognised our consistent track record of providing superior products to customers. 

"These awards recognise that Newcastle Permanent is continuing to offer our customers high quality and great-value products; products that are among the best in Australia," Mr Millett said.

"Customers are the focus of everything we do. These awards are proof that we provide our customers great value loans and the high-quality products." - CEO Terry Millett

Mozo Director of Marketing and Communications Kirsty Lamont said the comparison service analysed almost 240 personal loans from 73 providers to identify Australia’s most competitive personal loans across several categories including Car Loan, Secured Personal Loan, Unsecured Personal Loan, and Excellent Credit Personal Loan.

"This year’s research has been exhaustive with 239 personal loans under the judge’s microscope. To be ranked in the top 10% of personal loans in the market, given such tough competition, is a real indicator of a top value product,” said Ms Lamont said.

When presenting the awards Mozo recognised the excellent value Newcastle Permanent provides to its customers.  

More awards came in December with our Personal Loan, Unsecured being awarded Canstar’s Five Star Award. During the month, Newcastle Permanent was also named a finalist in the 2018 RFi Australian Lending Awards categories of Best Unsecured Personal Loan Lender and Best Mutual categories. 

"Recognition from industry that we, a Hunter-based customer-owned banking institution, can lead the charge in offering one of the nation’s best Personal Loans is another reason why we’re continuing to draw customers away from the big four banks," Mr Millett said.

"Customers are the focus of everything we do. These awards are proof that we provide our customers great value loans and the high-quality products."

Over the course of 2017, we also picked up several Mozo People's Choice Awards and a Mozo Experts Choice Award for our home loan packages. 

Our Owner Occupied - 3 Year Fixed home loan also took out the top prize in its category at the Finder Awards. These added to several other awards in 2017 from Canstar and Money Magazine.
