Balmain Origination and Lending

Balmain's first office was established in Sydney in 1979 by Michael Holm. Since then, Balmain has grown to include eight offices along the Eastern seaboard of Australia. The Sydney office is located in the heart of the CBD and is the first choice commercial funding provider for clients, accommodating both the operational and service teams, as well as the Corporate HQ.

Growing over many years and across multiple credit cycles, Balmain’s specialist commercial loan brokerage network is the largest and most experienced source of commercial loan origination not owned by the major Australian banks.

The Sydney office house a range of origination teams, including a number of founding partners who have been with Balmain for more than 20 years. Our culture and expertise has been reinforced in more recent years with the selective acquisition of new partners from the ranks of experienced bankers with proven execution capabilities.
