A former NSW mortgage broker has been handed the first conviction for contravening the NCCP.
 
Former broker Daniel Nguyen of Panania pleaded guilty to 10 offences relating to providing false information and documents to lenders to secure home loans totalling more than $3m. Nguyen was handed a two-year good behaviour bond, with the court taking into account his level of cooperation with the ensuing ASIC investigation.
 
"[Brokers] should know the law, read our guidance and seek additional or external advice if they feel they need it," ASIC commissioner Peter Kell said.
