Nominate your champions before July 01
Timing is running out for you to nominate a broker, lender, BDM, aggregator or promising young professional whose accomplishments deserve to be recognised.
Nominations for the 2022 Australian Mortgage Awards, to be held on October 14, 2022, at The Fullerton, Sydney, close on July 01.
Organised by Key Media and supported by Mortgage Professional Australia and Australian Broker, the 2022 awards feature our biggest group of sponsors yet with 20 companies backing the AMAs.
Westpac is once the event partner. The other award sponsors are Adelaide Bank, Bankwest, BOQ Broker, CBA, Dye & Durham, Equity-One, FBAA, Firstmac, La Trobe Financial, Liberty, MFAA, Mortgage Choice, MSA National, NextGen, OnDeck, Pepper Money, Prime Capital, Resimac and Trilogy Funds.
Digital bank 86 400, which recently rebranded to ubank following its acquisition by NAB, was awarded Fintech Lender of the Year at the 2021 Australian Mortgage Awards. Head of broker distribution George Srbinovski (pictured above) said winning the award was a “massive honour”.
“86 400 had set out to provide a different and unique process for the broker community and winning this award underscored those efforts by validating the team’s hard work in making this happen,” Srbinovski said.
Mortgage brokers facilitated a record 69.5% of all residential home loans in the March 2022 quarter, research commissioned by the MFAA showed. Your nomination will help to ensure talent and success within the industry is shared and celebrated.

Srbinovski said recognition from awards like these helped to drive brand awareness and build team morale.
“We’re thrilled that our efforts have been recognised and hope this has provided the team with an extra spring in their step to continue innovating and enhancing the customer experience,” Srbinovski said.
“We’re incredibly thankful to the brokers who have fully embraced such a young and unique brand with 86 400 and we’re looking forward to building upon that success with the newly created ubank.”
