ColCap focuses on offering an innovative and competitively priced suite of prime Australian home loan products under a multi-brand strategy through Wholesale, Retail and Broker distribution channels. The loan portfolio, which increased 37% over 2021 and currently exceeds $10.0 billion, is funded primarily through a combination of warehouse funding facilities and the issuance of residential mortgage-backed securities (“RMBS”).

ColCap has a strong track record of RMBS issuance, having settled more than $13.5 billion across 22 RMBS issues to date, including the $1.5 billion Triton 2022-1 prime residential mortgages issue that settled on 24 February 2022 despite recent market volatility.

ColCap’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Andrew Chepul said “We are proud of our 2021 result and our strong track record of delivering innovative competitively priced home loan products to our customers as well as achieving profitable growth. Our track record and scale offer us considerable flexibility and we are excited about our continued growth prospects.”
