The Adviser’s Australian Broking Awards has once again attracted solid support from Australia’s leading lenders as the industry gears up for the 2013 event.

Yesterday, Bankwest confirmed it would be a gold partner for the awards, joining a prestigious list of sponsors.

Bankwest joins the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, principal partner for the past three years, as well as platinum partners NAB Broker and Citibank and gold partners Pepper, ING DIRECT, Suncorp Bank and RP Data.

In addition, the bank joins St George, which has signed on to be entertainment partner for the third consecutive year.

Speaking about Bankwest’s decision to sponsor the Australian Broking Awards this year, the bank’s head of specialist banking, Ian Rakhit, said the bank was proud to support an industry event that is so highly regarded and well received.

“Bankwest is excited to participate as gold sponsors of the 2013 Australian Broking Awards. As a challenger brand, we understand the importance of recognising industry excellence and we are proud to be a part of an event which highlights the highest quality of professionalism and customer service within the Australian mortgage industry.

“As one of the first lenders to support the broker channel over two decades ago, we can most certainly say our passion and enthusiasm has not wavered. Bankwest remains committed to investing in and working with our broker partners to further cement our position as a lender of choice in the Australian market," he said.
