Submissions open for Top 25 Brokerages 2018

The Adviser is now accepting submissions for its annual Top 25 Brokerages ranking. Have you submitted your entry?

While the major players like Aussie and Mortgage Choice continue to dominate the top of the table, this year’s ranking saw eight new entrants.

Online broker iSelect, Green Finance Group, Finance365, Strategic Investor Group, MCP Group, Finance Detective, Option Finance Australia and Moneywise Global Home Loans were all new additions to the 2017 ranking.

Data collected from the 25 groups was based on the 2016 financial year — a period of significant growth in home lending supported by a buoyant real estate market.

Aussie managed to retain its position as the number one brokerage in Australia, with more than $18 billion in volumes over the 2016 financial year. The group now boasts a loan book of $63 billion.

Melbourne-based brokerage RateOne and Sydney-based N1 Loans saw the biggest improvement in this year’s ranking. Both brokerages moved up nine places from last year. iSelect was the highest placed new entry, jumping into the 2017 ranking at 13th place.

Collectively, the Top 25 have built a loan book valued at $198.7 billion, up by 4.6 per cent from last year. Total volumes slipped marginally by 1.03 per cent and broker productivity fell significantly — down by 10.23 per cent.

Non-franchise brokers continue to be significantly more productive than their branded counterparts. This year, collective non-franchise broker productivity was $24.8 million, while the average franchise broker wrote $17.2 million.

The number of brokers has increased by over 10 per cent this year, indicating that the 162,519 loans settled over FY16 (down by 1.9 per cent) are being spread among more loan writers.

If you think your business has what it takes to make The Adviser’s Top 25 Brokerages in 2018, then submit your entry today.
