Commercial lending wrap-up
As 2017 comes quickly comes to its end, I look back at the great success the Commercial & Equipment Finance growth over the past 3 years. We have enjoyed a massive 75% in growth, and many lenders are commenting on the growth pattern as we continue to build. We have many more brokers in the Vow network adding these products to their business planning, which is a terrific achievement.
We celebrated our third successful Commercial Conference in July in beautiful Hobart, and it was attended by over 125 brokers and lenders. Many new brokers were recognised for state awards for their tremendous efforts over the past 12 months Ian & Kelly Fraser (Qld), Donald Yum (NSW), Gary Casboult (Tasmania) and Chang Yi (Victoria) also our new National winner for 2017, Rob Diodato from Loans WA.
Next year we hold the conference earlier, in March, at the Sheraton Mirage on the Gold Coast. I look forward to seeing our continued growth in this sector in 2018 whilst we aim to settle over $1.3 billion by end of June. I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Xmas and Happy and Safe New Year.
