A leading financial services marketing firm is launching the first ever mortgage industry Ping Pong competition.
The ‘Mortgage Leaders Ping Pong Championship’ is an initiative by Wealthify.com.au to celebrate the broker industry and ‘lighten the mood’ at a time of unparalleled regulatory and market change.
The championship is a six-week long competition open to select brokers, BDMs and other industry leaders. It culminates in a grand final public event, where the winner receives a free Bali holiday.
“It’s a tough time for the mortgage industry right now,” said CEO Darren Moffatt.
“With the Royal Commission into banking, the Productivity Commission wanting to ban commissions, and a wave of digital disruption hitting brokers all at once we think it’s high time for some fun. And nothing’s as much fun as Ping Pong.”
The early competition rounds will be held at the Wealthify offices in Sydney. Each round is a ‘sudden-death play-off’, but all players will receive a ‘goodie bag’ and invitation to attend the final. The inaugural tournament is likely to be followed by more in other states.
Wealthify is also asking for any Sydney-based Brokers and BDMs who rate themselves as ‘ping pong superstars’ to participate by registering for the reserves list.
“We’re finalising our player list as we speak. I can’t say too much yet, but it’s an interesting mix of emerging and established industry figures. You can expect some of the mortgage industry’s biggest names to appear,” said Moffatt.
“Inevitably we’ll need reserves due to illness or last-minute cancellations. Anyone who wants a shot at ping-pong glory should get in touch with us!”
