The mortgage brokering industry has been in the media spotlight recently with a certain consumer watchdog group suggesting that our business is not always working in the best interests of the customer.
However, a recent review by finance industry watchdog, Australia Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) on mortgage broker remuneration described the role that brokers play as “providing value to both lender and consumers”, and “delivering great consumer outcomes”.
Speaking on 2GB radio recently, Minister for Revenue and Financial Services, Kelly O’Dwyer highlighted the ASIC review, and said “despite there being a lot of white noise about conflicts, on the whole, ASIC did find that the actual commission structure wasn’t providing a conflict directly for those people who were purchasing their mortgage through a mortgage broker”.
