Major wins top gong at brokerage event

by Caroline Dann06 Sep 2012

Loan Market announced ANZ as its Lender of the Year at its annual conference in Melbourne.

The major, which has suffered from dwindling consumer satisfaction levels recently, was cited as a consistently strong performer for Loan Market brokers, showing its might within the intermediary market.

Meanwhile, New Zealand broker Bruce Patton took out International Broker of the Year, settling $99.5m in 2011/12.

He told the audience NZ would only grow over the coming year, "matching [Australia] not by state but by country."

Closer to home, Victoria-based Josh Bartlett was awarded International Rookie of the Year.

Bartlett was previously the owner of a successful gym before being head hunted by Loan Market.
