iConsult is the brainchild of Satyan Mehra, one of New Zealand’s most talented and respected lending specialists. Satyan began investing in property at the age of 19 while studying finance and accounting at AUT. He founded iConsult with the aim of helping clients achieve their financial goals in the same way as he was helped by the right people at the right time. Whether to help clients purchase their first home or continue grow their portfolio, iConsult puts clients’ financial goals at the heart of their lending solutions.
iConsult specialises in finance solutions for small to medium sized businesses, property investors and developers. Whether you’re a seasoned investor or starting out in business or property investment, we arrange bank, cash flow and non-bank funding. iConsult makes complex arrangements simpler. We help our clients save on time, money and administrative headaches.
“Thank-you Satyan, you came through when we were feeling a little disillusioned with the whole lending process. Unable to secure funding after a month of trying, Satyan was recommended as someone who could help us with this process. The outcome speaks for itself. We can now move forward with our plans to purchase our first investment property.”
With deep knowledge of trusts and commercial and residential lending structures, the team at iConsult is highly sought after for the benefits they activate: funding clients’ growth while instigating simpler, more transparent lending arrangements.

Johnrae Tannen Mortgage Advisor
Johnrae wanted to pursue his passion for helping his clients. Having observed iConsult evolve from when Satyan left ANZ Bank, Johnrae’s purpose was very much aligned to iConsult’s foundations.

He is an experienced senior banker with a total of 34 years banking experience in ANZ New Zealand and ANZ Grindlay’s India.
Johnrae migrated to New Zealand in 2002 and started working for ANZ. Over the past 17 years in ANZ New Zealand, his roles have varied across Retail and Business Banking.
