For each of the past seven years, the Australian Financial Review (AFR) has been putting out a list of the most innovative firms in New Zealand & Australia. The founders of Infinity Group Australia were happy to find out that their firm had been named as the 58th Most Innovative Company by AFR for 2018. This comes just five years after Graeme Holm & Rebecca Walker established this company in Bella Vista, New South Wales.
Who is named to AFR’s list is determined by a consulting firm, Inventium, and a panel of experts in each industry. The main thing companies are judged by is whether their business solution solidly addresses the problem they are trying to solve. Inventium and the panels also look at the company culture regarding promoting innovation, how unique the service or produce is, and what resources they have as a business.
When he found out about his company winning this award Graeme Holm put out an official statement. He said that they were proud to have been named to AFR’s list and he thanked both them and Inventium. He went on to congratulate his company’s entire team and he was both honored and humbled to have his company win.
Graeme Holm has been in the financial industry for 15 years. He started out working for a couple of Australia’s big banks before co-founding Infinity Group Australia. He has been named as one of the MPA Top 100 Brokers in Australia. He also was certified by IQPC in 2018 with their Customer Service Management designation.
Like in many parts of the world, homeowners in Australia are often living paycheck to paycheck and not able to pay any more on their loans than what is required. Graeme Holm decided to fix this issue by partnering with these people and going over where every one of their dollars is going. His company then puts people on a cash-only budget from which they pay for their monthly essentials like food, gas, and clothes. The rest of their money goes towards debt reduction.

Graeme Holm says that when he was working for the big banks he could see that they were great at getting homeowners into debt but didn’t care to help at all in helping them reduce it and pay it off. He saw a niche for a company that would provide this service to consumers, one that would act as a personal trainer of sorts for finances.
