The industry’s youngest top performing brokers will be given the opportunity to vie for a lucrative position in The Adviser’s Young Broker of the Year, with submissions officially opening next week.
Partnered by Citibank, The Adviser’s inaugural 2012 Young Broker of the Year report is set to rank the nation’s leading brokers aged 30 and under on a wide range of business metrics including dollar value of residential mortgages settled.
The industry first report will not only highlight the young pioneers in the third party channel but reveal emerging trends that are sure to shape how brokers will operate over the coming years, according to Citibank Australia head of mortgages Vibha Coburn.
“Citibank welcomes the opportunity to partner with The Adviser in recognising and celebrating the future of the broking industry,” Ms Coburn said.
“We look forward to discovering what makes the next generation tick - and using this to better service the diversity that these young professionals bring to our industry.”
Scheduled to feature in the December issue of The Adviser, the 2012 Young Broker of the Year report will not only rank the nation’s top performing brokers, but provide valuable insight into the future of the third party distribution channel.
“This is a fast evolving industry and it is important to recognise the brokers that represent the future,” The Adviser's editor Jessica Darnbrough said.
“This isn’t just a ranking, this is the first comprehensive report undertaken to understand the vision of Australia’s newest brokers – tomorrow’s third party channel.
“This report will seek to understand how new entrants view the business of broking and what new thinking they are bringing to the industry in terms of advising their clients.”
