Nominations launched for coveted titles

2023 Australian Mortgage Awards now open

The most celebrated event in the mortgage and finance industry – the Australian Mortgage Awards – will once again highlight the best in the business.

Recognised as the industry’s most prestigious titles, nominations for the 2023 awards are now open.

After a hugely successful return as a live event in 2022 with more than 700 people in attendance, this year’s black tie dinner will be held on Friday, October 13, at The Star Event Centre in Sydney.

Run by Key Media, the Australian Mortgage Awards are now in their 22nd year and are supported by Mortgage Professional Australia and Australian Broker. Westpac will again take pride of place as the event partner for its 14th consecutive year.

“Australians trust and value the independent service mortgage brokers provide,” said Westpac Group head of mortgage broker distribution Warren Shaw (pictured below).

“We support and celebrate this as we come together to recognise an industry of hard-working and high-achieving professionals at this year’s AMAs.”

The AMAs 2023 will feature awards across 27 categories, honouring the best brokers, brokerages, aggregators, business development managers and lenders in Australia.

The lender awards include  the fintech lender of the year, as well as bank and non-bank of the year.

In the broker categories, awards will be handed out to the crème de la crème of commercial and residential brokers, and the nation’s best regional broker. Awards will also go to the best broker in specialist lending and productivity.

Brokerage awards will recognise the best small, medium and large brokerages as well as the top new brokerage, best brokerage for diversification and the best regional brokerage.

From the winners of the broker and brokerage awards the judges will also choose the Westpac Australian Broker of the Year and the Liberty Australian Brokerage of the Year.

Among the other awards are best aggregator of the year and boutique aggregator of the year, while the best BDMs for major banks, non-major banks and non-banks will also be honoured.
