Australian Mortgage Awards 2022 – Excellence Awardees revealed

The mortgage industry’s night of nights is returning as an in-person black-tie event in 2022 for the first time in three years.

The Australian Mortgage Awards 2022 is the most important event on the industry calendar – it’s like the Oscars for mortgage and finance professionals.

Now that COVID-19 is firmly in the rear-view mirror, everyone can meet up, network and celebrate the best brokers, lenders, aggregators and BDMS at The Fullerton Hotel in Sydney on Friday, October 14.

Australian comedian, radio and TV presenter Ed Kavalee, a regular panellist on Have You Been Paying Attention? will be the MC on the night, while award attendees can later dance the night away to Furnace & the Fundamentals, who have the reputation of being the best party band in Australia.

For 21 years, the Australian Mortgage Awards have been honouring the best in the business across the nation and this year’s event will feature 25 categories plus the two major awards – Westpac Australian Broker of the Year and Liberty Australian Brokerage of the Year.

The Key Media event is proudly supported by Australian Broker and Mortgage Professional Australia. Westpac is event partner again in 2022 – the 13th consecutive year Westpac has supported the AMAs.

The awards are also sponsored by 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, PropTrack, Resimac and Trilogy Funds.

Now before the big night arrives, Australian Broker and MPA are delighted to announce this year’s Excellence Awardees – who are all finalists for the Australian Mortgage Awards 2022 .
