Richard began in working in finance in 2001 whilst also completing his Business and Finance degree at Griffith University. He was introduced to credit policy with PR Finance Pty Ltd, and was fortunate to get a good understanding on what banks and financiers look for when assessing an application.
On completion of his degree, he was given the opportunity to learn the principles of mortgage broking and spent 2 years with Palladium Financial Services, before taking up a role with Royal Bank of Scotland and Bank of America in London. In these roles Richard gained experience in lending practices on a corporate level. Upon returning to in Australia in 2008, Richard saw an opportunity to combined his finance and building knowledge to focus heavily on construction finance, aiming to make the process a smooth one for clients and building companies alike. This was the start of Lion Financial.
Since 2014 Richard and the team at Lion Financial have expanded, and are focused on providing reliable finance solutions in residential, commercial and business sectors, from their panel of lenders

“My husband and I recently engaged Richard and his team at Lion Financial to help us find a home loan. I had my concerns about our eligibility for a home loan with me being self employed for less than two years. I had enquired with two other mortgage brokers who both told me it would be impossible. Richards attitude was completely different. He did everything he could to find a product that suited us and our situation and was completely open and honest throughout the process. His communication was second to none and he ensured the process was as stress free and convenient for us as possible. We ended up being able to buy a house that we absolutely love, which never would have been possible had we not asked Richard for help. I can’t recommend Richard and his team highly enough!” Libby
