I valued the five years Jarrod was ANZ’s banker manager for a parcel of commercial property
loans advanced to my private projects. For me, Jarrod stood out amongst his peers. The
combination of being competent, personable, easily contactable, and open made the
I trust Jarrod. There were times where he went to bat for my position when the bank was less interested. He is a tireless advocate. Most importantly, I felt he genuinely cared about our commercial interests. In my experience, if you are considering using Jarrod to source commercial funding, you are in good hands.
We met Jarrod Smith in his role as our Relationship Manager when he was working in the Property Finance side of the ANZ Banking Group Limited in Perth. During the time that Jarrod looked after our business we found him to be very knowledgeable as to the products available, attentive to detail and always determined to achieve the best result for his customers. Jarrod was not afraid to provide us with recommendations as to the best way of approaching a financing issue even if it was outside our normal scope of arrangements. We believe that any client whom Jarrod represents in his new business will find him fastidious, loyal, quick to learn and understand how the client operates their business and prepared to do what is required to achieve a good result for the client.Brian McCubbing, Director, BMC Properties

Jarrod assisted with construction finance for three adjacent residential development projects in 2015. The initial finance application and approval met our expectations, however his account management during the period when the appointed builder gave us project challenges allowed the project to finish with no further delays. Jarrod's willingness to assist is a hallmark of his service.Damian Collins, Momentum Wealth
