Mr. Holm noted that many of the clients in the market for Australian Loans are living from paycheck to paycheck.

Infinity Group was able to bring to life the idea of ongoing support and guidance throughout the whole cycle of the client loan journey.

 

Holm noted that repayments on 30-year loans could happen in the timeframe of 3-5 years, but the average span is 7-10 years if the right payment structure is put into place, and people follow the plan.
