Kelly’s Finance Group was established in 1988 and is based in the Hunter region, arranging finance facilities for businesses and individuals for the purchase of business and personal assets.

We have long standing relationships with both our clients and lenders, working with a wide variety of industries and sectors.

Our focus is to source the finance for your particular purchase, taking into account all facets of that need and to be consistently competitive in obtaining the best solution available in the marketplace. To assist us with this focus, we have accreditations with a wide range of lenders.

Through one of our lenders we are thrilled to have won the below awards:

Westpac Top 10 Introducer NSW Equipment Finance – 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
Westpac Loan Quality Award NSW First – 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018

We pride ourselves on providing a service that makes life and business easier for you – as many of our clients can attest to!

Although the phrase ‘finance broker’ could be used to describe our service, we choose not to use this phrase as we are not about obtaining a one off financial arrangement for you. Instead we want to initially arrange such financing but then be in a position of a long term association to service your finance requirements.

Who are you dealing with?

David Ward


David has spent all his working career working within the finance industry.

Immediately after leaving school he joined the National Australia Bank, where a good understanding of the banking system was learnt. Two years in he was looking for more variation and was able to secure his first job in lending. He has since remained in the lending field since 1985, working through several finance companies and banks, gaining experience in all types of lending, but particularly business lending, being responsible for large volume targets along the way.

An opportunity arose to join Kelly’s Finance Group in 1998 and he has remained here since. He became an owner/director in 2013 and continues to see the business flourish and win awards within the industry.

David gained his Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management in 2014 and became a Credit Licence holder at the same time.

He is very proud of how the business operates today and the reputation it has gained through plain hard work.
