CBA chief executive Ian Narev will join Aussie founder John Symond and real estate guru John McGrath at the brokerage’s sales conference next week.

Aussie will celebrate a record 2017 financial year with its biennial sales conference titled “Think” to be held next week, with more than 800 people expected to attend.

The conference will be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre from 27 August to 30 August, with a range of exciting speakers sharing their collective wisdom about the mortgage market.

The conference will feature Commonwealth Bank chief executive officer Ian Narev, Aussie founder and chairman John Symond and McGrath Ltd executive director John McGrath in a session titled “Collective Wisdom”.


More than 100 representatives of Aussie’s panel of 21 lenders and industry partners will attend the event, which will also include motivational speeches, workshops and a gala night.

“Our 2017 conference will be the mortgage event of the year and will arm our broker group with new skills and inspiration to provide the best mortgage service to Australians in cities and regional areas,” Aussie CEO James Symond said.

“There are a range of major issues facing the industry and it is important the key players like Aussie inform our network and partners about them and provide a path for them to grow further.

“Mortgage brokers now provide more than 50 per cent of mortgages in Australia, and I am confident that share will continue to grow our standards even higher through innovative thinking, which our conference will be all about.”
