NAB bats for brokers in ASIC hearing

Fostering loan quality and strengthening competition in the marketplace - the big four banks reiterated the contribution of the broker channel. 

NAB’s executive general manager of broker partnership Anthony Waldron was asked to assess the value of the broker channel in the mortgage application process in the  Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) second round of public hearings. This is in relation to the proposed update of ASIC’s responsible lending guidance (RG 209).

According to Waldron, brokers play an important role when it comes to initiating the credit process for consumers that depend on the third-party channel for access to lenders. 

Moreover, Waldron added that brokers provide an added layer of assurance regarding the quality of a home loan by assessing a customer’s suitability for a product before lodging an application. 

The corporate regulator expected to publish its new guidance before the end of the calendar year as ASIC’s second round of public hearings has concluded.
