Equipment Finance - Dealer Rates of 2-3%

It is not uncommon to see motor dealers offering finance at around 2% or 3% on new vehicles.

How do they do this?
The car manufacturer compensates the financier for providing the finance at the lower rate on condition that the car is sold at the recommended retail price.

What do they hope to achieve?
To reduce the level of excess stock holdings for certain vehicles.
If cars are being sold at a discount, this could devalue the brand and upset customers that purchased the cars at the old price.

What’s the catch?
You may not qualify for the lower finance rate if you negotiate a discount on the car price.
The period of the finance is normally limited to 4 years with little or no residuals.
The dealer includes excessive establishment fees in the amount financed.
You may be considerably better off waiving your right to the low interest rate offer and take the discount on the car.

What you should do.
You could consider a buyers agent or make sure you getting the best price for the car.  At the least you should get an expert to have a look at the finance arangement and makes sure it is OK.  If you need assistance, please contact Equitimax and we can put you in touch with Darren Goodman from ProLease.  Darren not only looks are after our clients - he also looks after our own equipment finance. Both Robert & John have a chattel mortgages & commercial hire purchase financed through Darren.

Congratulations to Vow Financial

Wholesale Aggregator of the Year - 2011 and 2012: MFAA Excellence Awards

Vow Financial have won the MFAA award for Wholesale Aggregator of the year for the second year running, which is a fantastic achievement considering they have only been in business as Vow for two years!
Vow Financialal thank all of our broker partners for your ongoing support over the last two years of us being in operation. 
Vow Financial
The awards were held on Friday night at the Westin Hotel in front of a crowd of over 400 industry participants. This award is judged by a panel of Industry stalwarts who review each applicants strategy, information and communication. I had several people who were on this judging panel congratulate Vow on the quality of the submission and how much we had achieved in such a short space of time. A number mentioned that our diversification initiatives (Vow Wealth, Vow Legal & Vow Leasing) made us an easy stand out in the aggregation space.
This is a great achievement that the team at Vow Financial are very proud of and is an acknowledgement that aggregation is just more than software, compliance, commissions and lender agreements. This award continues to support our strategy of diversification and creating value for you - our broker partners.
Thank you once again to all of you. This award would not have been possible without your ongoing support and commitment.
Kind Regards, 
Tim Brown
