We ARE NOT ‘finance brokers’, though we operate Australia’s only Advising Financier network with national coverage and exclusively for franchise finance.
We ARE the Franchise Finance Market and our sole purpose is to optimise the franchise finance solutions available to Market participants.
We ARE driven by our MISSION, BELIEFS and PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION.
Franchise Finance Market: What Is Our Bigger Picture Mission
To optimise finance outcomes for Market participants.
That means finding the optimal outcome for all stakeholders, not just the best outcome for a lender, or a franchise, or a franchisee, but the optimal outcome for them together.
Franchise Finance Market: Its All About Our Beliefs
FFM believes the biggest problem for the financing the franchise sector is the over-abundance of adversarial thinking between the stakeholders. Lenders want what is best for them, being in a position of strength they take, take, take. And so it goes.
Optimisation is not having the stakeholders sit in a circle hold hands and sing kum ba yah. It is working out what give and take compromise between the stakeholders will result in the optimal outcome for all of those stakeholders.
Adversarial relationships is short-termism.
Optimised outcomes; are harder to achieve, require a higher level of commitment, but are long-termism.
