Mortgage aggregator Finsure Finance & Insurance has been confirmed as one of Australia’s fastest-growing companies after being ranked second overall by BRW Magazine in its latest top 100 Fast Starters list.
BRW’s annual Fast Starters list compares businesses founded after June 2011. Businesses that make the list are ranked by their revenue and growth percentage within the last financial year.
Finsure moved to second place after being ranked 18th in 2014. BRW recorded Finsure’s 2015 financial year revenue as reflecting an increase of 90 per cent on the previous 12 months.
The Finsure Group recently announced the recruitment of its 800th broker and has stated that settlement volumes have increased a further 50 per cent during July and August 2015, compared to the same period last year.
Finsure managing director John Kolenda said the latest recognition from BRW “was an exciting achievement for the company”.
“We are delighted to be ranked second on such a high-profile list and also to be acknowledged as the fastest-growing financial services company,” Mr Kolenda said.
“Over the years some of Australia’s best known companies have come to prominence on a BRW Fast List.
“What makes this result even more satisfying is that we were able to accelerate our growth and significantly improve our ranking on last year.”
Mr Kolenda said the ability for the company to continually increase its growth rate over several years is a testament to the talented and hardworking team at Finsure as well as its broker partners.
