Richard Jefferies

- Diploma in Financial Planning- Cert IV in Mortgage Broking- MFAA accredited

Richard began in working in finance in 2001 whilst also completing his Business and Finance degree at Griffith University. He was introduced to credit policy with PR Finance Pty Ltd, and was fortunate to get a good understanding on what banks and financiers look for when assessing an application.

On completion of his degree, he was given the opportunity to learn the principles of mortgage broking and spent 2 years with Palladium Financial Services, before taking up a role with Royal Bank of Scotland and Bank of America in London. In these roles Richard gained experience in lending practices on a corporate level. Upon returning to in Australia in 2008, Richard saw an opportunity to combined his finance and building knowledge to focus heavily on construction finance, aiming to make the process a smooth one for clients and building companies alike. This was the start of Lion Financial which became Newbridge Home Loans.

Since 2014 Richard and the team at Newbridge have expanded, and are focused on providing reliable finance solutions in residential, commercial and business sectors, from their panel of lenders.
