The Australian Financial Review recently named Infinity Group Australia among its Most Innovative Companies of 2018.
Since Infinity’s launching just five years ago, co-founders Graeme Holm and Rebecca Walker have helped countless Australians get into better financial shape. Infinity is one of the fastest-growing debt reduction companies in the industry.
Landing on the prestigious AFR list is no easy feat. Inventium, the leading innovation consultancy, evaluates more than 1,000 nominees and ranks them according to problem-solving skills, practicality and impact in the real world. Its panel of experts also considers company culture, creative strategies and the process of bringing new ideas to life.
The AFR has been a respected authority in finance, business and investment news for more than five decades. It reaches more than 1.8 million readers and is known for independent, award-winning journalism. The Most Innovative Companies top-100 list is now in its seventh year.
Infinity was awarded the 58th spot. Holm accepted the honor on July 30, saying, “Congratulations to our amazing team for their passion for doing things differently!”
Holm has a 15-year track record of holding banks accountable and helping hard-working Australians climb out of debt. In the role of financial fitness trainer, he works personally with families and individuals. He thrives on teaching people to spend wisely, invest shrewdly and create new sources of wealth for a financially secure future.
Holm is doing something right, and he’s doing it with passion. His young company is right at home among the industry’s most trusted leaders. It was also recognised by Mortgage Professional Australia, which ranked it 13th on the Top 100 Brokers list in 2017.
Infinity Group is based in Bella Vista, New South Wales. It has rapidly expanded to open offices in Cronulla, Melbourne, Brisbane and Port Macquarie. Strong commitment to unparalleled customer service has paid off for both Infinity and its clientele.
It all started after Holm spent six months analysing and addressing problems in the Australian mortgage market. He was appalled to find that customers were largely unsupported in the process of paying off their loans. There was no one to turn to for guidance and advice. He vowed to offer debtors a better way.
Holm and his team of experts don’t just serve their customers; they forge meaningful, long-term relationships based on integrity and mutual trust. Believing that most families have gotten a raw deal from conventional banks, Holm is on a mission to keep financial institutions honest and reverse the damage one household at a time.
Infinity customers have a personal banker who helps them stick to their budgets and pay off their loans as quickly as possible. Clients receive monthly progress reports.
The results are impressive. One-hundred percent of Holm’s customers have paid more toward their loans in the first three months of his program than they paid in the previous 12 months within the traditional banking system. On average, they eliminate $41,000 in debt over a year’s time.
Holm also found that people were so focused on keeping their heads above water that few had a strategy for creating wealth. Infinity teaches customers about long-term investment vehicles such as rental properties. It also monitors clients’ assets and provides extensive reviews to ensure that their investments yield the highest possible returns.
Holm wants his clients to reduce debt, create wealth and invest in the future. He and his personal bankers guide their customers, but they also hold them accountable.
The personal fitness trainer analogy is not far off the mark. Holm takes his clients’ financial health very personally indeed.
