Balmain Origination and Lending

Balmain's Melbourne office was established in 1997 following the burgeoning growth of Institutional (non-bank) lenders in the commercial property/mortgage sector. These new dynamic lending Institutions sought geographic diversity to satisfy their investor base and ratings agencies. With its healthy industrial, commercial and retail property markets, Melbourne was the obvious choice for Balmain to open the first interstate office.

Growing over many years and across multiple credit cycles, Balmain’s specialist commercial loan brokerage network is the largest and most experienced source of non-bank commercial loan origination.

Melbourne office is located on the 51 level of one of Melbourne's iconic buildings and has built a business around a core group of highly qualified, experienced partners and finance analysts adding up to over a centuries worth of commercial property finance expertise. The average employment tenure at Balmain Melbourne office is in excess of 9 years, which produces a collegiate office environment and a business culture driven by innovation and success.
