Level-up with like-minded brokers

| Feb 08 - 3 min read

When brokers make the big decision to choose an aggregator, they consider many things:

  • Will their tech increase productivity and keep them compliant?
  • Will they educate and train staff in best-practice methods and help me source future talent to scale-up?
  • How can they help me find leads and help me approach referral partners?
  • Will their marketing tools cut through the noise to reach current and future clients without me having to lift a finger?

There’s another aspect that brokers look for, and one which very few aggregators get right - a sense of community.

From different ethnicities to sporting clubs, the arts to religion, Australia is home to different communities of like-minded people who share experiences and grow together.

At Loan Market, we support and celebrate our many communities across Australia. We don’t simply support communities based on where people live and work - we create relationships based on like-minded ambitions, skills and interests.

Being in mortgage broking can be lonely. But, at Loan Market, whether you’re just starting out or you're a seasoned operator with an established team, you’ll find people with the same challenges and opportunities taking their businesses to the next level at Loan Market. It’s where productive and progressive brokers find their home.

Loan Market's Victorian Young Business Owner (YBO) community

Young business owners

Aged under 35, our Young Business Owners community (YBO)  is made up of businesspeople at a similar point in their careers, hungry to scale their businesses and shake-up the customer experience. YBO was born out of the fact that Loan Market is a young network: the average age of our brokers is 44 and 46 for business owners - younger than the industry average of 58.

Whether it’s learning how to value a trail book, or determining if PAYG employees or contractors are better for their business, they explore issues that are relevant to them at their stage in ownership. Our YBO members also get exposure to our seasoned operators who share how they’ve established successful businesses.  It’s a progressive culture, producing broking’s leaders of tomorrow.

Loan Market's Succession series has brought together experienced brokers to plan out their future moves

Experienced business owners

Every experienced business owner has a date that they’re working toward. For some, that date is when their business will run productively without them being in the office everyday; for others, it’s when they’ll find someone to buy-into, or purchase, their business.

Loan Market wants all its business owners to be able to reach their date on their own terms. Our Succession Series helps owners understand what they need to do to get their. Together, these owners are exploring ideas - alongside the expert guidance of Loan Market’s Business Performance specialists - to strengthen their operations, identify a legacy for the business and maximise their investments outside of broking.
