How to become a bond originator in South Africa

A bond originator helps their client apply for and secure home loan approval from a bank. They act as an intermediary between the client and the banks, and can advise the client on the home loan application process, and help them secure the best possible deal with the most favourable interest rates.

The career is currently not regulated by the South African government, and you do not require any specific education to qualify as a bond originator, although you will need to be able to demonstrate an understanding of the bond registration process. There are courses that can provide you with the basic knowledge you need to operate as a bond originator.

You can work independently, or be employed by a bank or home loan comparison service such as ooba Home Loans.
