Revealed - Best advisers at the New Zealand Mortgage Awards 2022

New Zealand Adviser is proud to announce the winners and excellence awardees of the New Zealand Mortgage Awards 2022 (NZMAs) across three adviser categories.

This year’s annual NZMAs, presented by NZ Adviser, teamed up with Bluestone, a lender that specialises in residential home loans in New Zealand and Australia, as well as Select Home Loans (Select), a mortgage lender offering solutions that cater to borrowers’ ever-changing financial needs.

This leading independent awards program in the New Zealand mortgage industry identified the best advisers by asking individuals and companies to nominate themselves or their peers in three adviser categories, focusing on achievements from the last 12 months. The Mortgage Awards team then conducted research and gathered editorial insights to supplement and verify the materials submitted in the nominations.

Afterwards, an independent panel of judges appointed by NZ Adviser reviewed the submissions and allocated each nominee with a confidential and impartial score. Composed of mortgage and finance leaders from across New Zealand, the judges were:

  • Eugene Bartsaikin, managing director, Twine Financial Advisers
  • Julius Capilitan, lending member advisory committee/managing director, Financial Advice New Zealand/Century21Financial
  • Adrienne Church, general manager NZ, Prospa
  • Tony Dench, CEO, SHARE
  • Dev Dhingra, founder/CEO/principal adviser, The Fundmaster
  • Anton Douglas, CEO, Midlands Mortgage Trust
  • Glenys Holden, CEO, Norfolk Mortgage Trust
  • Luke Jackson, NZ head, Resimac
  • Sarah Johnston, CEO, Astute Financial Management
  • Tony Mounce, director, Tony Mounce Mortgages & Insurance
  • Elyce Peters, director and mobile mortgage adviser, The Mortgage Girls
  • Katrina Shanks, CEO, Financial Advice New Zealand
  • Tahei Simpson, mortgage adviser, Vega Lend
  • Aaron Skilton, CEO, New Zealand Home Loans

Once the judging had been completed, the nominees with the highest scores in each category were conferred with excellence awards, while the nominee with the highest overall score in each category was identified as the winner of the category.
