One of Australia’s fastest growing aggregators recorded more than $1 billion in settlements in December 2015, less than five years after the company was founded.
Finsure managing director John Kolenda said the speed of the company’s growth had exceeded his expectations and was a tribute to the hard work of Finsure’s brokers and staff.
“This is a big milestone for Finsure and a fabulous achievement to build up the business to this level in just over four years,” Mr Kolenda said.
“We are well ahead of where I thought we would be when Finsure was established in 2011.
“The $1 billion settlements milestone is a testament to our strategy and recruiting good brokers. We now have more than 850 brokers and we are keen to keep recruiting,” he said.
Finsure was ranked second overall by BRW magazine in its latest 'Top 100 Fast Starters' list and the company was ranked second when the SmartCompany Top 50 was named, celebrating Australia’s fastest growing SMEs in 2014-15.
Mr Kolenda, who recently hosted Finsure’s first international conference in Shanghai, said the achievements and industry recognition were exciting news for the company.
“We’d like to acknowledge the great work of our brokers and staff who have all contributed to the success of Finsure,” he said.
Finsure recently revealed it will be hosting its 2016 conference in Singapore, just prior to the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix, giving attendees an opportunity to stay on and experience the event.
“Our 2016 international conference will be a great opportunity to celebrate all of the important milestones we have achieved over the year,” Mr Kolenda said.
