About Us

What is Onion, if it's not the edible type?

Onion is the creation of a team of like minded people combining their expertise and enthusiasm to establish a fresh, no tears financial services brand. Onion's key purpose is to make buying or building your new home easy by providing skilled specialists in finance and insurance with extensive knowledge of the housing market and home building sector - to work for you.

Why was Onion created?

We know the financial services sector needs to keep improving, to do more for our customers and provide more services and value. So, we asked many of you, would it be helpful if we provided a specialist team, one point of contact, independent of all the banks and lenders, to negotiate on your behalf the best deal we can for your home loan and personal insurance needs.

Your answer was a resounding "yes please", so Onion was born!  

What is our Goal?

To make your financial experience easy and do such a great job, that every customer would recommend us to their closest friend!

Why call it Onion?

Well onions are used in our homes every day, most of us love the added taste experience they give to a range of our meals. So, Onion became our brand and a cute little chap we know as Ollie was created. We felt it fitted, onions add value to a meal for little or no cost and have many layers. Onion is providing more layers of service to our customers and adding to a great experience.
