Loan Market broker rescues cat during cyclone

With cyclone Debbie hitting hard in QLD, we had a few of our brokers stuck in the middle of it.

Kris May, a broker up in Hay Point had to quickly grab his distressed cat and flee his home after the evacuation text messages were received.

With the house he was living in being exposed to significant flood damage from the cyclone, he had no choice but to evacuate and drive to Ema Park with the 11 month old kitten Sarabi.

"She had a carry thing when I picked her up that was made of cardboard,” he said.

"Within moments of going outside, she fell out of the bottom.”

Sarabi ended up in a plastic clothes basket for the four hour drive to Emu Park. We are just glad they are now both safe and well!

An opportunity to offer your clients more.

Already, the majority of brokers on the Wealth Market pilot are taking the opportunity to add further value to their clients. They're introducing their wealth team as part of the Loan Market finance solution and referring clients to an adviser for tailored, personal protection advice.

The feedback, from both clients and brokers, has been incredibly encouraging after the first month. It’s clear that integrating wealth creates opportunities to increase customer satisfaction, business value and ongoing relationships.

Thanks to everyone who has already referred their clients to a Wealth Market adviser - we appreciate your support.
