Mortgage brokers looking to diversify their income and break into the small business lending space are invited to attend this free event in November.

Attendees will hear from Gerard Hermens, a director at The Institute of Strategic Management, who will give a master class on writing SME business. This session will help brokers position their business for growth to become a truly trusted SME partner and understand the value of their advice.

Brokers will learn how to read balance sheets and identify opportunities for their small business customers.

The Adviser’s Bootcamp SME Broker 2017 event will also provide exclusive research from leading small business publication My Business, which pinpoints exactly what SMEs want, how they view mortgage brokers and what types of finance they are looking for.


In addition, two broker panel sessions will focus on how to attract new SME clients and what alternative finance options are available for mortgage brokers and their small business customers.

Later in the day, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Scottish Pacific, Spectrum Wealth and Semper Capital in a series of comprehensive master classes designed to broaden their knowledge of new revenue streams.

The event kicks off in Sydney on 14 November, before heading to Melbourne on 15 November, Brisbane on the 23rd and Perth on the 28th. It will be hosted by James Mitchell, managing editor of mortgages at Momentum Media.

“Over the last 12 months, there has been a significant shift among mortgage brokers towards small business finance,” Mr Mitchell said.

“This was evident in The Adviser’s Elite Business Writers ranking for 2017, which showed a big increase in volumes other than residential mortgages among the top 25 brokers in the country.

“Any broker in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Perth looking to add another string to their bow and crack into the fast-growing small business market will gain incredible insight at the [Bootcamp] SME Broker event this year.”
