About Masters Broker Group

Masters Broker Group was founded by Mario Borg and Andrew Tan to guide and foster sustainable and profitable mortgage brokers (both new and existing businesses) in Australia.

We conduct business building workshops for our member partners focusing on the key elements in running a very successful mortgage broking business.

These workshops are “how-to” events, with tried and tested tools, templates and systems to make a mortgage broker increase revenues and profits. Contact us to find out more.  You can also follow us on Facebook.

Mario Borg
BBus(Acc) MBA
DipFS(FP) DipFMBM  MFAA Accredited Mentor

Mario is a Finance Strategist, an active Property Investor and Developer, and a Financial Mastermind.  His passion is centred on working with individuals who want to achieve true financial freedom through the power of property and through the use of productive debt.

Mario has helped hundreds of clients get ahead financially, by providing strategic finance advice, and by helping clients understand the need to ensure their quality of living can be sustained when their earning capacity is past its peak.

Mario has had great success in helping clients reprogram their mind and believe that debt is an asset, and that good debt is an enabler to achieve true financial freedom and financial security.

In 2004, Mario took the leap of faith and decided to leave a well-paid senior position in financial services to set up his own mortgage broking business, which he sold at a premium price just after 8 years.

Today, having re-established himself back in the mortgage game to follow his passion, Mario has again proven that with the right mindset and a passion for what you believe in, you can build anything from scratch and turn it into a success.

Mario has won many industry awards over the past decade and today he is ranked as a Top 100 Mortgage Broker in Australia (10 years running), as published in Mortgage Professionals Australia publication.

In 2005, Mario experienced the ugly “D” word when he and his previous wife got divorced.  Equipped with a positive mindset and a strong purpose, Mario decided to take the bull by the horns and re-build his financial position from ground up.  Today, Mario owns a strong million-dollar property portfolio which he says he will continue to build and grow for the next family generation, and which will become his legacy when his time is up.

Mario’s comments are sought after as he is regularly featured in the Australian Financial Review and in the Domain section of The Age. He has also appeared on several occasions on Channel 7 news commenting on interest rate movements.

Mario’s client pool includes, but is not limited to, CEOs and CFOs of large corporate organisations, many specialist professionals including Doctors and Lawyers, and he has a large client base of property investors that seek specialist finance advice to ensure they remain on track with their own financial journey.

Mario’s vast experience and approach to mentoring have proven to help many mortgage brokers to become very successful.

Andrew Tan
DipFS(FP)  DipFMBM  DipVET  MFAA Accredited Mentor

As a qualified mechanical engineer, Andrew began his career in operations research and manufacturing systems.  But it was clear that he would need to create his own opportunities to achieve the level of financial security he wanted for himself and his family.

Having decided to go self-employed, Andrew entered the mortgage industry in 1997 as co-founder of what was to become a very successful mortgage broking company, Capital Power Pty Ltd.  Utilising his engineering expertise, he instigated many pioneering processes that resulted in faster application-to-settlement turnaround times and improved customer experiences.

In 2003, Andrew co-founded Members First Broker Network Pty Ltd, a mortgage sub-aggregator which soon became one of the most successful super-groups within PLAN Australia. By 2012, Andrew’s company had a mortgage portfolio of around $2 billion. The business was acquired by Ballast Finance Pty Ltd in 2011.

Andrew has specialist expertise in debt structuring, gearing strategies, debt recycling, and mortgage minimisation.

Andrew has a track record of helping new-to-industry mortgage brokers grow highly successful businesses. His innovative use of technology and systems has helped many mortgage brokers to make their businesses more profitable and robust.

His influence and guidance as an MFAA Accredited Mentor has had a tremendous effect on transforming mortgage brokers and their businesses become very successful in the industry.

Andrew’s views on personal finance can be read on his blog.
