Key Operating Metrics - October 2018
Trading Update October 2018 The month of October 2018 continued the strong performances for both Goldfields Money and Finsure, with increases across all key operating metrics, including managed loans settlements, aggregation settlements and the recruitment of loan writers.
The Company reported another particularly strong performance in the higher-margin Managed Loan Settlements division, as a result of the successful consolidation of four mortgage managers into the business over the past 24 months.
Importantly, managed loan settlements, aggregation settlements and the recruitment of loan writers are key operating metrics that drive both transactional and recurring revenue streams. Recurring revenues consist of interest, trailing commissions, management fees, transactional fees on trailing commissions, platform fees, compliance fees and software as a service subscription fees.
Managing Director, Simon Lyons, commented: "The strong performance of the business during October further demonstrates the strategic rationale for merging Goldfields Money and Finsure, creating a company with increased distribution and more diversified revenue streams."
"The businesses reached another milestone in October with book growth in managed loans to $2.533 million and an aggregation book of approximately $34 billion. Goldfields Money's banking business also contributed $6.3 million in managed loans on balance sheet over the month."
"Since the completion of the merger on 17 September 2018, the pipeline of applications has also grown significantly, which is especially encouraging. Furthermore, we continue to win market share and outperform our listed peers against a backdrop of negative credit growth."
"We have also successfully increased our deposit base to $211m, up from $195m as at June 30, and continue to successfully diversify our funding sources with our call deposits increasing to 21% up from 18% at the end of June."
"The post-merger integration is going to plan and we expect to derive more revenue synergies in the months ahead. We continue to invest in the business, particularly in building out our digital strategy and growing our own technology development team. We aim to make a senior appointment to oversee this in the months ahead." Mr Lyons concluded.
Due to the aggregation of data the timing of each monthly report will be approximately five weeks from month end i.e. November 2018 metrics will be released around the end of the first week of January 2019. The Company intends to provide this information on a monthly basis for the first half of FY19.
