The Active Home Loan Manager

About us


The uno story

Our mission is to grow the prosperity of Australian households by helping them find, and stay on, the best value home loan for the whole life of the loan.

uno was founded in May 2016 by Vincent Turner after years of innovating in financial technology from Australia to Silicon Valley.

uno – pronounced “you know” – because “you” come first

Born from a passion to improve Australian’s financial health, Vincent started uno with a vision to make the process of getting a home loan easier, faster and more transparent. 

We believe the scene is now set for a home loan experience not seen here before. 

An experience that truly puts the interests of customers first. 

Not just saying it, but doing it. 

To put it bluntly, we want to be the most customer focused home loan business in the market.

uno is Australia’s first Active Home Loan Manager™ ¹

We proactively look after customers’ largest household expense, the home loan.

Our job does not stop when we renegotiate or settle a home loan.

We use our unique loanScore technology to analyse the home loans of our customers.2 If we find opportunities where customers can save, our experienced brokers can help negotiate better deals for them.

All that can mean saving thousands of dollars in interest over the life of a loan.

A solid and transparent business you can trust

uno’s vision is backed by Westpac and their ongoing support helps us continue to innovate for the customer.

We pride ourselves on matching customers to the right home loans across our growing panel of 29 lenders whether they are purchasing a property or refinancing.

uno presents deals matched by personal needs, not driven by commissions.

We’ll continue to be transparent about this.

With uno, you can win and keep on winning at home loans.

 

Team uno.

Anthony JusticeCEO

The opportunity to lead the uno team is very exciting. Not only are they a fantastic group of people, they have a genuine desire to make life easier for customers and to make sure that results in a great deal every time. Buying or refinancing a home is the biggest financial decision most of us ever make, so why not make that an awesome experience?

1 Refer to our Active Home Loan Management Terms for more information.
2 We use our unique loanScore technology to analyse the home loans of our customers.”Your loanScoreTM is an indicative rating of your current loan health compared against uno’s available lender data matching the new loan characteristics you requested. Your score is a guide only, based on what you entered and assuming the same loan amount and term outstanding on all loans, and monthly repayments remain the same over 3 years. It does not tell you whether you would be approved for loans with a higher score than yours and does not assess your credit record or consider your verified financial information. Each lender has its own lending criteria, so loans with a higher score than yours may not be available to you if, for example, you have a poor credit history. Whether actual savings will be achieved by any action depends on the accuracy of your data, your loan conduct and eligibility. We won’t suggest you remain in or switch to any loan until we complete our assessment. See our Active Home Loan Management Terms.
