A Bouris-Macquarie mortgage magnet?

Macquarie Group and YBR's joint foray into the retail mortgage market is disturbing to the big four, and the new entity's combined strengths position it well to overcome current challenges in the sector.

The tie-up between Macquarie Group and Mark Bouris’ Yellow Brick Road that was flushed out by some loose lips at the Melbourne Cup may not create a fifth pillar in banking, but it does have the potential to have a major impact on the sector.

YBR announced the partnership arrangement, perhaps supported by Macquarie taking up equity in YBR, that will see YBR distributing white-labelled mortgages and other retail financial products manufactured and managed by Macquarie.
