With Commissioner Hayne recommending a move away from lender-paid commissions to a consumer-pays model, Alex outlines what Momentum Intelligence’s recent Consumer Access to Mortgages Report suggests would happen to the broker channel, consumer outcomes and competition if such a move were implemented.

  • What the main recommendations for brokers are
  • Their word of warning to any policymakers
