The Top 25 Brokerages is one of The Adviser’s most anticipated annual reports and showcases the best mortgage broking businesses in the nation.
Last year, the elite group employed 2,569 loan writers and had a combined loan book which totalled a staggering $176.8 billion
Aussie Home Loans was the number one brokerage in 2015, followed by Mortgage Choice, Smartline Personal Mortgage Advisers, The Australian Lending & Investment Centre and Loan Market.
This year’s ranking will no doubt include a number of leading independent brokerages from across Australia, according to James Mitchell, managing editor of mortgages and real estate at Sterling Publishing.
“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 provide complete information for all questions maximise their chance of achieving a top ranking.
