After a sustained period of lobbying and high-level meetings, the FBAA has been invited to be part of Treasury’s stakeholder lock-up today in the lead-up to its delivery of the federal budget.
The FBAA’s Peter White will spend the day alongside media and other key interest groups in learning first-hand Treasury’s plans for managing the nation’s economy.
Mr White said the invitation is “a tremendous award” for the amount of time and effort the industry body has put into cultivating and fostering relationships with key decision-makers.
“It’s good that the government has recognised the key role brokers play in the financial space, and that the industry is an important interest group which must be heard and taken seriously,” Mr White said.
“With the FBAA in attendance, the media and other interested stakeholders can hear our perspective on how the budget could affect the lives of the many Australians using brokers to obtain or manage their mortgages.”
