A Sydney-based brokerage has announced its partnership with a charity to address the poverty and education of women in developing countries.
Aaron Christie-David, founder of Atelier Wealth, brought together business associates last week to announce the business’ partnership with Batting For Change, an initiative from cricketer Ryan Carters.
After a visit to Nepal, Mr Carters began the charity in hopes that the generosity of Australians would allow for transformative educational opportunities for disadvantaged women in cricket-playing nations.
Mr Christie-David said Atelier would “buck the trend of traditional settlement gifts of material nature” and instead give to those less fortunate by giving "the gift of change".
The founder continued to say that Atelier clients would be helping first-hand through a settlement donation to Batting For Change.
“We want to raise the bar for customer service in the mortgage broking industry through deeper conversations with our clients, beyond just their home loan,” he said.
“Our alignment with Batting For Change also puts into perspective how fortunate we all are and the quality of life we have in Australia, and how each client can also help women become more empowered in developing countries.”
Atelier’s partnership announcement also ended with a market update, led by CommSec economist Savanth Sebastian.
Mr Sebastian noted that Sydney was performing well with the total supply expected over the next 12 to 18 months, which would be “absorbed relatively well because population growth is still strong”.
“Historically, we build about 140,000 homes a year,” Mr Sebastian said.
“For the next 12 months, we’re going to do 240,000. The following year after that, we’re going to do another 220,000.”
