We've beaten the big banks at their own game by winning Money magazine’s Home Lender of the Year Award.

Monday 14 September, 2015.

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 four major banks, until Newcastle Permanent’s first win in 2013.

Newcastle Permanent CEO, Terry Millett, said the 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 the 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.

"This is recognition that the publicly listed major bank model is not the best way to deliver value to home borrowers – Australia is realising that Newcastle Permanent offers the best value in price and product, while operating with the strong community values of regional Australians,” he said.

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.

"Newcastle Permanent provides an experience above and beyond the major banks for customers seeking the best quality and price for their retail banking services, which we can offer because of our financial strength and constant focus on leading the market for our members, not maximising profit for shareholders," Mr Millett said.
