About Balmain

Balmain is a broad based privately owned and operated financial services organisation. Its activities span commercial mortgage finance (both arranging and lending) and investment funds management. Our skilled people and unique ability to access wholesale institutional funds, bank balance sheets, funds management and private markets both locally and overseas has enabled Balmain to provide a funding experience which cannot be matched.

Balmain's corporate holdings include significant investments in large and established service providers in the funds management and real estate debt services sector. It is Balmain's opinion that the ability to provide all of the services required in both funds administration and real estate debt makes the companies offerings compelling to both to investors and borrowers.

Since 2011, Metro has been working with trusted brokers to deliver reliable and competitive vehicle and equipment loans to hard working Australians.  In that time, we’ve financed over $6bn in loans and helped over 75,000 customers.

Starting with loans to business we’ve built on our commercial experience to now offer consumer vehicle loans and novated leases.  Metro is wholly Australian owned and independent, backed by shareholder equity and Australian institutional funding, giving brokers and their clients an alternative to traditional bank funding.
