Kris Pedersen Mortgages was started by Kris Pedersen in 2007 after seeing areas in the residential lending market where clients were either being told ‘no’ (when he knew a solution was available), or given an answer which was not in their best long-term interests.
Kris has been ranked as being within the top 6 largest mortgage advisors in the country for 2014 and 2015 and over the last 10 years he has rapidly become the choice for investor who are serious about wanting to grow their portfolio and utilise market leading advice.
He also speaks regularly at various Property Investor Association groups and is a respected commentator on the property and finance markets in New Zealand and overseas and features monthly in the NZ Property Investor Magazine. He spends his time working closely with his support team, sourcing his clients' leading edge finance strategies, his clients range from some of NZ’s top property investors through to first home buyers.
Kris has had experience in many varied areas of finance starting off in consumer finance where he was responsible for a team that was lending over $40m per month to on average over 3,000 customers every month of predominantly unsecured credit. Kris project managed initiatives that had been used overseas, which were light years ahead of the NZ market at that time. He still uses this strategy today in looking for new and innovative financing techniques. From here it made sense to make a natural transition into non-bank lending to combine his long-term interest in property investment with innovative techniques of financing property. Kris joined the market leading non-bank lender who had introduced products such as 100% lending and low-doc loans into the NZ mortgage landscape.
