ALIC Makes The Adviser’s Shortlist of Top Australian Brokerages

The Australian Lending & Investment Centre has been recognised as one of Australia’s leading mortgage brokerages after securing seventh place in The Adviser’s Top 25 Brokerages 2023 ranking.

The Top 25 Brokerages ranking, developed in partnership with NAB, has been revealed in the February 2023 edition of The Adviser magazine, Australia’s top publication for mortgage and finance brokers.

Now in its 14th consecutive year, the Top 25 Brokerages ranking shines a light on high-performing brokerages that have consistently achieved high scores and set the benchmark for excellence for the rest of the industry.

Coming in at seventh place is a massive achievement for ALIC after it successfully placed 10th in the 2022 edition. 2023’s ranking cements the organisation’s progress and unwavering dedication to continually improving its services and performance year after year.

The rankings took into consideration key business metrics and overall productivity. Scores determined the final rankings in six key metrics across the 2021–22 financial year (FY22):

  • Number of loans settled in FY22
  • Value of loans settled in FY22
  • Overall loan book size
  • Average annual loan book growth (overall loan book size divided by years in business)
  • Total number of brokers
  • Broker efficiency (volume of loans divided by the number of active brokers)

“It’s great to be recognised and lauded for all our efforts over the last 12 months,” said CEO Damian Brander, who was thrilled with the result.

With unsettled markets and rising interest rates, it hasn’t been smooth sailing, either. 

“We’ve had to work extra hard during this period and ensure we’re not dropping the ball for any of our clients – to make the top 10 is an incredible achievement, and I’m proud of every single member of our staff for their contribution in making it happen,” said Brander.

ALIC’s goal is to continue its progress up the annual list with a top five finish next year. The company will earn its 2024 position by maintaining and improving its stellar commitment to clients and unwavering work ethic now and over the coming year.
