Two Major Wins for Empower Wealth in the Australian Mortgage Awards 2023 

Empower Wealth is thrilled to announce that our mortgage broking team took out not one but two awards at the Australian Mortgage Awards 2023! 

Both the “Brokerage of the Year (>20 Staff)” and the top gong of the night recognising us as the best Mortgage brokering business in Australia – Australian Brokerage of the Year awards recognise the collective effort of our team and business, and were announced at a highly anticipated black-tie gala dinner at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on 13th October 2023. 

“I’ve had many proud moments leading the Empower Wealth Broking team for the last 4 years, but this is now my pinnacle. These awards are not just for the mortgage team, but our integrated business partners, and I sincerely thank everyone for their contribution,” said Ben Magnus, Head of Mortgage Broking. 

Nominations for these awards focused on achievements and results from the previous 12 months, and submissions were sent to an independent panel of judges – comprising mortgage industry leaders and senior representatives well respected within the industry. 

Brokerage Awards: BROKERAGE OF THE YEAR (>20 STAFF)

  • Brokerage of the Year (Over 20 staff) 
  • Brokerage of the Year – Diversification

They were judged on a number of criteria including loan volumes, year over year growth, lead generation, client retention, quality of submissions, customer service proposition, and broker training and development. 

“We know our Mortgage Broking Team doesn’t do what they do for award nights.  We all do what we do for the positive impact we have on the lives of those we serve,” said Ben Kingsley, founder and managing director of Empower Wealth Advisory. 

“Being recognised by our peers for this work, as well as taking out the top award on the night, is direct and powerful feedback confirming we have great people, doing great things for our clients.”
