JASON BACK, MARK DAVIS, KEVIN AGENT
MANAGING DIRECTOR AND PRINCIPALS
AUSTRALIAN LENDING AND INVESTMENT CENTRE
This is the second year running that the Australian Lending and Investment Centre topped MPA’s Top 10 Independent Brokerages report, with good reason. The Melbourne-based brokerage’s success reflects a dedicated focus on investor clients, efficient processing and individual talent; both Davis and Agent ranked highly in our Top 100 Brokers report. ALIC stands out in that they ask the client to make a commitment, in writing, to a long term relationship, and then work closely with their extensive referral network. They’re also experimenting with processing strategies and developing an ‘educational academy’ within the brokerage. Still not convinced? Check out their numbers: they have a total loan book of almost $2bn, with Davis alone writing 1,071 loans over the 2014-15 financial year – an industry record.
