Sarah Megginson joins Finder to lead home loan editorial strategy

29 October 2020, Sydney, Australia – Highly regarded journalist and industry heavyweight Sarah Megginson has joined Finder, Australia's most visited comparison site¹, to oversee the editorial strategy for its home loans vertical.

Megginson, former Managing Editor of leading Key Media titles including Australian Broker and Your Investment Property magazine takes on the role of Senior Editor, Home Loans, bringing 15 years of experience as a finance and property journalist.

She will apply her knowledge and experience in delivering industry-leading content across multimedia channels with a focus on Finder's website and app platform.

Megginson will oversee the editorial direction and news strategy to unpack complex home loan related topics via educational guides, news articles and video content to help Aussies make more informed decisions.

Finder Australia's CEO Chris Ellis said Megginson's appointment comes at a crucial time.

"We're delighted to have Sarah join the team at a time when many households are searching for ways to save on their repayments due to the financial fallout of COVID-19.

"Sarah has a proven track record as an expert journalist in the mortgage industry and brings over a decade of industry experience.

"We're excited for her to spearhead our editorial strategy to innovate and find new ways to produce engaging content to help Aussies at each stage of the decisioning process," he said.

Megginson said she's excited to help Aussies better understand home loan products and industry trends.

"With more than 2.6 million unique monthly visitors, Finder has a highly engaged national audience and I'm excited to apply my skills and knowledge so I can educate people about complex home loan topics.

"From how a RBA cash rate decision affects your mortgage to understanding the structure of your loan, there's a whole spectrum of content in this field.

"Just over a decade ago, the average home loan rate started with a 7 – now, it's possible to get a loan with a rate as low as 2%. The mortgage landscape has changed drastically in the last 15 years which is why it's exciting to be working in this space.

"I look forward to adding value to Finder's home loan content so I can genuinely help people navigate their product application or home buying journey," she said.
