The Adviser is now taking entries for one of the most anticipated annual reports showcasing the best mortgage broking businesses in the country.
Each year, The Adviser presents Australia’s Top 25 Brokerages based on five core categories: broker productivity, volumes, number of deals, business growth and loan book size.
Last year, the elite group had a combined loan book which totalled to a staggering $90 billion, up almost 8 per cent from the previous year.
Aussie Home Loans was the number one brokerage in 2016, followed by Mortgage Choice, Smartline Personal Mortgage Advisers, The Australian Lending & Investment Centre and 1st Street Home Loans.
This year’s ranking will no doubt include a number of leading independent brokerages from across Australia, according to James Mitchell, managing editor of Mortgage Business at Momentum Media.
“While the big franchise groups typically dominate the top of the league table, it is always interesting to see which independent groups are rocketing up the ranking,” Mr Mitchell said.
“The Adviser is proud to support this growing industry, and the Top 25 Brokerages report has become a key benchmark for Australia’s mortgage professionals.”
“Over the last 12 months, I can think of a few groups that are really kicking goals and I look forward to seeing how they fair when the results come in,” he said.
To qualify for a Top 25 ranking, brokerages must meet the following requirements:
• The brokerage must have a minimum of three brokers/loan writers
• All brokers/loan writers must operate under the brokerage’s own brand
• The brokerage must be accredited with at least four banks
Brokerage heads who could provide complete information for all questions maximise their chance of achieving a top ranking.
