Right: Our Broker has embraced digital financial services, ensuring its clients are the major beneficiaries. A rebadge reflects an inclusive approach In 2015, Raine & Horne Financial Services undertook a major brand refresh. Now operating as Our Broker, the financial services business provided residential and commercial property loans and business loans from a panel comprised of more than 30 lenders. As Angus Raine explained to The Adviser: “We rebadged our financial services business to Our Broker to reflect the inclusive, personalised service that Raine & Horne has been famous for since 1883”. The rebadge proved successful, and by 2022 brokers Australiawide were operating under the Our Broker brand. Moreover, Our Broker has expanded its suite of services to include insurance, personal loans, equipment and asset finance as well as commercial finance. Dedicated to making the journey to financing property a streamlined, stress-free and easy-to-navigate experience from start to finish, Our Broker collaborates with more than 35 of the best residential and commercial lenders in Australia to find the best possible products and rates for its clients. The financial services specialist sources rates and products from major banks, as well as foreign subsidiary banks, building societies, credit unions and other specialist lending institutions. Whether a client wants to purchase or refinance a property, or just find some extra cash, Our Broker is lending a hand. The move into financial services wasn’t just designed to benefit consumers. The alliance with brokers has also proved to be a valuable source of referrals for listing agents. A commitment to growth In a highly competitive market, Our Broker is continuing to explore new opportunities that provide better customerfocused property solutions, leaving the network well positioned to grow and prosper. As the super brand expands overseas, undoubtedly fresh ideas will come from international markets. But the core premise of continually building on a strong brand and good name, first established by Tom Raine and Joseph Horne in 1883, will remain unchanged. 125
