Commonwealth Bank was crowned Best Third Party Lender at the Australian Lending Awards 2016 held last week in Sydney.

Dan Huggins, executive general manager of home buying at CBA told Australian Broker said this is an important accolade for the country’s biggest mortgage provider. 

“This award is a great acknowledgement of the strong relationships we have with our mortgage broking partners, and our efforts to consistently deliver great outcomes for our customers,” Huggins said.

“Thank you to our broker and industry partners for their ongoing contribution and support.”

The judging panel assessed lenders on how they position themselves to capitalise on the third party channel, including product offering and servicing capabilities; the commitment to the third party channel in terms of training and education; and assessed real life case studies on how lenders help to empower brokers and contribute to the development of the third party channel. The judging process also included the results of a broker survey.

Amongst the judging panel was the chief executive of the Finance Brokers Association of Australia (FBAA), Peter White.
