Brokers under the age of 30 will be celebrated at a cocktail event this November, with the Young Broker of the Year for 2016 to be announced on the night.
The Adviser’s second annual Rising Stars event will take place at 6.30pm on Friday, 18 November at the Marquee Boom Box at The Star, Sydney.
With support from principal partner Heritage Bank, the event aims to bring together Australia’s best and brightest for an evening of networking, socialising and celebrating as it recognises the nation’s top young brokers.
The industry will also learn who Australia’s top broker under the age of 30 is, when The Adviser’s fifth annual Young Broker of the Year ranking is unveiled.
As in previous years, this year’s rankings will uncover the final 30 based on a broker’s residential volumes, actual home loans written and other volumes such as commercial, vehicle and equipment finance, and insurance.
According to The Adviser editor, James Mitchell, the Young Broker of the Year ranking not only offers significant marketing value to brokers who make the list, it also recognises and supports the industry’s future leaders.
“There are some young brokers out there who are streets ahead of their peers and we want to recognise their achievement and highlight the business attitudes and practices that define them,” Mr Mitchell said.
Heritage Bank’s head of broker distribution, Michael Trencher, said the bank was proud to be the sponsor of The Adviser’s Rising Stars event.
“We’re thrilled that we can help those brokers new to the industry to learn from the best and to enjoy the chance to network with their peers,” Mr Trencher said.
“Heritage’s support of the event, which includes the Young Broker of the Year Award, is a concrete demonstration of our commitment to the mortgage broking industry. Heritage has been in the broker business for almost two decades, and we are now placing even more importance on this sector.”
“Heritage plans to grow [its] overall business significantly in coming years, and our mortgage broker channel will play a critical role in enabling us to meet our targets,” Mr Trencher added.
“We are recognising the importance of the channel by enhancing our investment in the sector. Supporting the Rising Stars event is just one of the ways we are doing what we can to support development and professionalism in the mortgage broking industry.”
