Why choose Accredited Broker

Always such a difficult question to answer. Selling ourselves is always hard, especially as Australians, it can often come across as arrogant and self-centered and I don’t think that may of us would go out of our way to deal with the arrogant and self-centered.

But this doesn’t really answer the question does it? Why should you choose to deal with Accredited Broker or one of our partners instead of one of the other providers within the industry?

Back in my mid twenties when I was still relatively new to the industry my Mentor took me aside and told me a story which has stayed with me all these years.Central StationCentral Station is the largest railway station in Australia. With 27 platforms it is the central hub for most city services as well as inter-state rail services.

If you were to arrive at “Central Station” and you want to go to “Bondi Junction”, he said, how irrational would it be for you to board the nearest train simply because it was the first one you saw? On the same token would you purchase the cheapest ticket without considering how far it would take you and in which direction?

A sensible person considers their destination and boards the appropriate train to take them where they want to go.

Now I know that in my personal and professional life have taken a fair few trains heading to a destination that I didn’t want to reach. In reality the worst thing about heading in the wrong direction isn’t the fact that you are further away from your goal than you were at the start but the negative impact on your energy and enthusiasm to ultimately reach you goal.

The main aim of Accredited Broker and our partner organisations is to develop and foster professional credit advisers into the Australian finance industry. We have helped to train thousands of students to meet minimum industry qualification standards, assisted in the ASIC compliance and licence applications of hundreds of companies and have guided the submission, approval and settlement of over 2 Billion worth of loans.

If you believe that our experience can help you to reach you ultimate destination then I would encourage you to contact us to find out about some of our Accreditation Pathways.
