The Adviser is pleased to reveal the leading mortgage professionals that have been shortlisted as finalists for the Better Business Awards 2019.

The finalists for the state-based Better Business Awards 2019, partnered by NAB, have now been announced.

Acknowledging the brokers who are leading the charge – those with the most effective businesses, teams, marketing strategies and integrated offerings – the awards also honour the lenders and aggregator business development managers (BDMs) that are supporting brokers, too.

Now in its sixth consecutive year, the state-based Better Business Awards recognises and celebrates the best in the industry in their local markets.


The event provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the top-performing brokers in each state, those who may not always get recognition at a national level, while providing the finalists and winners with the opportunity to leverage local area marketing opportunities.

More than 600 finalists have been shortlisted for the awards, which will take place in Adelaide (14 February), Brisbane (21 February), Melbourne (18 February), Sydney (7 March) and Perth (14 March). 

Annie Kane, Momentum Media’s editor of mortgages, said that the strength of the submission this year showed that “support and excellence is in no short supply in the mortgage and finance industry”, despite the last year having been a “trying one” for the sector.

Ms Kane said: “The calibre of finalists this year is testament to the invaluable services that the mortgage and finance industry provides to consumers.

“Mortgage professionals continue to raise the bar, and the finalists for the Better Business Awards 2019 are all examples of the high level of professionalism of the third-party channel.


“On behalf of The Adviser and Momentum Media, I’d like to congratulate all finalists and wish them the best of luck at the Better Business Awards in 2019,” the editor of mortgages said.

Speaking on behalf of NAB, Steve Kane, general manager of NAB broker distribution, said: "The finalists are undeniably the best in the business and set a high standard for business excellence. Mortgage broking is about developing strong, long-term relationships, and going above and beyond to help customers achieve their financial goals.

"It’s fantastic to see the finalists acknowledged for staying on top of industry changes and adopting solutions that add real value to their customers. They are forward-thinking brokers that continually embrace technology and go above and beyond to meet the evolving needs of customers."

Mr Kane added: "The Better Business Awards ceremony is a night where the industry comes together to celebrate the successes of the mortgage broking industry as a whole. It’s a well-deserved opportunity for brokers and industry players to network, connect and celebrate their achievements."

The winners of the awards will be announced at the Better Business Awards dinners in February and March, following on from the Better Business Summit.

The award-winning Better Business Summit aims to provide brokers with straight-talking, practical advice to help them grow and improve their businesses.

The event has grown exponentially over the years to become the industry’s leading event and now welcomes more than 4,500 attendees every year.
