Australian Broking Awards 2020 launches

The 10th annual Australian Broking Awards has officially opened for submissions, with winners to be announced at our first ever virtual awards program.

The Australian Broking Awards is the only industry awards program focusing exclusively on the leading brokers, brokerages and aggregation groups in the Australian mortgage industry.

Now in its 10th year, the awards recognises those who work tirelessly to make the broking industry the thriving and successful channel of choice that it is.

Building on from our state-based awards program, the Better Business Awards, the Australian Broking Awards 2020 – partnered by NAB – showcases the best in the broking business on a national level.


Whether it is recognising the leading brokers, celebrating innovation or championing customer service and professional development, the awards honours the individuals and firms who are leading the way in the industry.

Submissions for the Australian Broking Awards 2020 are now open.

A broad selection of categories is available to enter for individual or group submissions, and you can nominate a colleague for an award, provided that the eligibility criteria are met.

Submissions are free and will be accepted until 11 June. Winners will be announced on the night of the Australian Broking Awards 2020.

Given the coronavirus pandemic and the associated social distancing requirements, this year we will continue to recognise the achievements of talented brokers in 2020 with a live broadcast of the awards on Thursday, 16 July.

Speaking on behalf of principal partner NAB, Steve Kane, general manager, broker distribution, commented: “As the bank behind brokers, we are proud to be the principal partner of the Australian Broking Awards (ABAs), held for the first time in digital format on Thursday, 16 July. 

“For a decade now, these prestigious awards have celebrated the best and brightest brokers, brokerages, aggregators and industry leaders across the country.

“Over that time, we’ve seen a great deal of changes in the regulatory landscape, evolving customer needs and broader external conditions. As the world has pivoted and adapted to the current environment, so too has our industry,” Mr Kane said.

“During this period of uncertainty, it is important that as an industry and as individuals, we take stock of our achievements and acknowledge the high standards of service being delivered by brokers to customers.

At a time where being close to customers, understanding their needs and their challenges is more important than ever, it is fitting to be recognising those that go above and beyond to help customers achieve their financial goals.”

Mr Kane “strongly encouraged” brokers to use the next few weeks to “reflect on your successes over the last year and send in a submission”.

“On behalf of NAB, stay safe and we wish you the best of luck!” he said.
