The final component of the Australian Lending Awards assessment processes concluded yesterday, with the judging panel now working to finalise lenders’ scores and determine the winners of the highly-anticipated 2013 event.
Day two of finalist interviews, held at The Adviser’s offices in North Sydney on Tuesday, saw a raft of senior lending executives come together to battle it out for recognition as Australia’s best.
In addition to providing written submissions, finalists in several categories are required to present and argue their submissions before the Australian Lending Awards judging panel.
Among the businesses represented at Tuesday’s interviews were Westpac, Advantedge, FAST, Loan Market and State Custodians, all out in force to fight for top honours.
Jim Hall, publisher of The Adviser, said it was great to see a lending industry so eager to improve and gain recognition for its services, products and innovations.
“This year’s interviews have revealed a lending community that is passionate and dedicated and aspiring to ever greater levels of excellence, and that’s certainly encouraging for all involved in the home loan market,” he said.
Overall winners of the Australian Lending Awards will be determined by the judging panel’s assessments as well as the results of extensive consumer and broker surveys.
Winners will be revealed at a prestigious dinner at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth on Friday 15 February 2013.
