Thriving Abroad, Investing Back Home

Emma and Oliver, an Australian couple with two children, are thriving in Singapore. Emma has established herself in a senior role at a major multinational company, earning a significant income after nearly a decade of dedication. Oliver, fresh into a senior position at a prominent financial institution, is quickly making his mark. They already had seven investment properties. Now, with their successes abroad, they were keen to invest further back home in Australia. However, navigating the complex mortgage process as expats felt daunting, especially with their diverse portfolio and unique financial situation.


The Expat Investment Challenge

Their ambition to secure another investment property was met with several obstacles:

  • Finding a suitable lender: They needed someone who understood the complexity of expat financial situations.

  • Maximising lending potential: Ensuring their foreign income was considered to the fullest extent.

  • Managing their portfolio: With seven existing investment properties and two credit cards, they needed a lender who could see the strength in their diverse portfolio.

Despite their extensive experience with investment properties, Emma and Oliver were particularly anxious about finding a lender that would accept most of their net foreign income, offer favourable terms, and lend them the largest amount possible. The sheer volume of their investments and the complexity of their expat status added layers of stress to the process.
