FMT Lending Criteria and Rates

At FMT we are committed to help drive growth and wealth for New Zealanders by partnering with clients to provide finance solutions. Our team understand the industry and sectors and have local knowledge and relationships that can assist in the loan application process.
Team of experts

For us it's a partnership

Our Business Development Managers (BDMs) take the time to understand your situation and work hard to help you succeed. The BDMs are involved in the whole loan application process so you always have a person to talk to, who will keep you updated on the application process.

We pride ourselves on being a responsible lender and we want the best outcome for our clients and for FMT, and for our investors. With this in mind, if we believe your application is better suited to a mainstream bank or other provider we will communicate this with you.

We lend to a certain level against different categories of property. Loan applications are considered on a case-by-case basis within First Mortgage Trust Lending criteria.
