We are proud to have been at the service of Kiwi families for almost three decades!

Our Story
Founded in the early 1990’s, Mortgage Link was one of the first mortgage adviser groups to be established in New Zealand and played a vital part in the development of the industry. We are 100% New Zealand owned and operated, with over 40 locations across the country all the way from Northland down to Otago. As a market leader in financial advice, we are proud to have helped thousands of Kiwis with their home financing needs.

Mortgage Link recently expanded its service offering in 2016 through the establishment of its sister company Insurance Link, which was set up to complement its mortgage products by providing the most comprehensive range of insurance options from the very best insurance providers. Making sure that Kiwis make good, informed decisions about how to protect what matters to them. 

What we offer

Our experience and knowledge will ensure that you are offered the most competitive and appropriate options available from banks and other lending institutions. We have stood the test of time due to the fact that we take the time to understand our client’s financial objectives, so that we are able to create a unique solution specific for their needs. We have always kept in mind our goal of helping Kiwis make smart financial decisions that will save both time and money.

From the first home buyer through to the experienced investor, we look forward to talking through further details with you.

Bernie van der Merwe

Customer service is especially important to me. I will work with you to help customise a plan suitable for your individual and family requirements so that you can achieve your financial goals.

Having been in the Financial Services industry since 1985, I have obtained extensive experience in various areas in the financial arena.

I was self-employed in South Africa and immigrated to New Zealand in 2010 and now gained my mortgage and insurance experience, working for several brokerages to gain the Kiwi experience needed in the Financial Services industry.

I am married to Lindy and have 2 grown daughters.

I have been advising individuals and families regarding their personal finances (new mortgages, debt consolidation, mortgage refinancing and insurance) to get ahead and protect their most important, valuable family asset, their lives, and homes. I will work with you and help set a plan to achieve your financial goals.

I understand the importance of having a plan for your short, medium, and long-term financial goals. This includes buying a home, paying for education and then retirement.
