The Adviser’s Australian Broking Awards 2021 honoured the best and brightest in the mortgage and finance business in Darling Harbour.
The 11th annual Australian Broking Awards, presented in collaboration with major partner NAB, were held today (Thursday, 2 December) to honour the top brokers, aggregators, brokerages, and loan administrators in Australia amid another challenging year.
This year, the in-person event was back after being aired via live stream in 2020 due to physical distance limits. Giving the industry a chance to congregate, network, discuss and celebrate their successes with their colleagues over the past two years.
Individuals, groups, and association leaders were recognised for their efforts in 29 categories, with many taking home several awards.
Tony Bice of First Choice Mortgage Brokers was named Finance Broker of the Year, the day’s last non-residential broker award category.
Mr Bice told The Adviser that he has benefited from branching out from mortgage broking and financial planning services. He not only began offering risk insurance with a client’s mortgage after realising that the two products and services “were a perfect mix” but also positioned his service offerings, so they were affordable for clients.
This year, the Australian mortgage and financing market has hit new highs, with the broking business busier than ever assisting Australian borrowers in realising their ambitions.
It was a big night of celebrations for the First Choice Mortgage Brokers team! We would like to thank The Advisor for hosting such a successful event and congratulate all the 28 winners from the night who are working relentlessly to demonstrate why brokers are and will continue to be the preferred channel for Australian borrowers.
It was fantastic to participate in everyone’s energy by launching back into the socialisation of our industry with great enthusiasm. The First Choice Mortgage Broker’s team can’t wait to be there again next year!
“The broking sector has had to work harder than ever to assist borrowers in getting funding, given the unprecedented amount of business, the ongoing epidemic, and a new regulatory framework.” Annie Kane, the editor of The Adviser, commented. “A recurring theme in this year’s submissions was that of a sector that has worked relentlessly to assist clients through thick and thin.”
