Franchise re-launch spells opportunity

Jim’s Financial Services has re-launched as a division within the Jim’s Group and divisional franchisor, Tony Gale, explains the opportunities for brokers. 

What are the benefits of becoming a Jim’s Financial franchisee? 

Access to over 4000 Jim’s franchisee’s nationally,  local area marketing, sales leads and lead generation (internally and externally), established powerful  referral networks (divisional & regional franchisors), unique product and service offerings, compelling marketing collateral, business planning and support, generous commission structure, multiple income streams (including vehicle, equipment, commercial and personal loans) state of the art software, ongoing professional training and upskilling

What is JFS’s biggest point of difference among other mortgage franchisors?
With 50 divisions operating within the Jim’s group, the Financial Services Division has an already ready-made “internal market” of close to 4000 franchisees with a further  900 new franchisees entering the group every year, providing thousands of finance opportunities which our Franchisees have established finance solutions. The add-on revenue streams with vehicle, equipment and commercial loan finance enables cashflow to be instantaneous upon start-up.  

Which brokers would best fit the Jim’s business model?  
We are looking to recruit experienced finance professionals, be it in the Mortgage or Motor Vehicle and Equipment sector,  who can benefit from our lead generation and hit the ground running, earning an income from week one. 

What support can brokers expect in the early days if they chose to join JFS? 
We realise this is a new environment for our Finance Franchisees therefore we  provide a comprehensive 60 day on boarding program which is broken up into detailed marketing and operational activities, furthermore our franchisees are supported by experienced internal staff equipped with technical knowledge to answer all relevant queries. This runs parallel to regular ongoing internal and aggregator training and upskilling sessions

What does your newly introduced investment property referral platform involve? 
 As part of the client interview and fact finding process our franchisees will determine the clients requirements, this may range from  a purchase of an owner occupier property, refinance and debt consolidation, motor vehicle lease, to  property investment and so on. Where a client has indicated an interest in property investment our franchisees will provide a financial analysis to determine serviceability and affordability and then provide an introduction to  accredited property specialists to assist the clients in selecting the appropriate property.  We give the customer back the savings when purchasing an investment property from our as it is a ‘business to business purchase – not retail to business.

    It’s exciting, I’m a relatively new franchisee and I have recently placed my leads on hold. The Jim’s group is like a family and the referral network is great. It’s an exciting opportunity for existing brokers who want to generate an income source immediately and leads.

    Access to a large network of businesses and home owners nationally. The ability to call clients using a powerful regonised and trusted brand like Jin's, I'm thinking this is a Winner.

    Lets hope the franchise agreements are not prepared to leave people who the model does not work for defaulting the value back to Jims.

    What does the model offer to a broker, that is a point of difference to the seasoned aggregators?

    Sounds ideal, access to to Jims network, the largest franchise network in the world, with a warm market of successful franchisees. Sounds like an opportunity.

    Terrific, just great.
    Having cars driving around with Jim Penmans face on the side as their logo, with the unsaid implication that we can strike a deal on their lawn mowing needs whilst we also go through their financial ones, is just the professional shot in the arm this industry needs.
    It's as though we don't have enough problems already.
    I'm just thrilled
