Significant events included:

Currently we are holding significant cash and we are looking at lending proposals each day. The transaction inflow has been very strong over the year.
We are pleased with the quality of transactions being presented to us.

The most interesting point for us has been the strong demand from investors. We are finding that investors wish to get a fixed return for a medium term between 6 months and 5 years and as a result our Secured Deposits are becoming very popular. We are hearing from clients that they have too much money in banks earning low rates and they don’t want listed bonds due to the length of the investment.  General Finance Secured Deposits seem to be an ideal fit for those who want good rates but medium term Investments.

The investors often feel they are subsidising the Banks who seem to be making very significant profits. An opportunity to invest in a New Zealand Financial Services business which was established in 2001 and offers good returns is a very attractive option for an increasing number of New Zealanders.
