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.

DipFS(FP) DipFMBM  MFAA Accredited Mentor

 

For Mario, deciding to leave a well paid senior position in financial services was a life-changing decision that he had to make to achieve his goal of launching his own business and building a secure financial future for his family.

At first, the pressures of running his own business were a challenge for Mario.  As founder of his former company, Mortgage Achievers, he did not take any salary home for the first six months.  But he knew that if he put in the effort at the start, the rewards would come later. And once the momentum kicked in, he never looked back.  Within a few years, Mario had earned the first of five consecutive Diamond Sales Master awards from PLAN Australia, one of the largest mortgage aggregators in Australasia.  He has been a PLAN Sales Master every year since PLAN’s award ranking recognition scheme was launched in 2006.

Mario is a respected media commentator, featuring regularly in MPA magazine and on Channel 7 News commenting on interest rate movements, as well as maintaining his blog.  Now, as an MFAA Accredited Mentor, Mario is helping others to achieve their career goals in the mortgage broking industry.

Mario has been ranked in Mortgage Professional Australia (MPA) magazine’s Top 100 Mortgage Broker national ratings for nine times.

Andrew Tan
BEng(Mech)Hons
DipFS(FP)  DipFMBM  Cert IV(TAE)  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.

Uncompromising integrity and professionalism are the cornerstones of our business. In all that we do, Masters Broker Group supports and upholds a set of core values and principles.

Our values and principles form the foundation of our business dealings, and frame the relationships with our mortgage broker mentees, business partners, customers, referrers, training organisations, aggregators, lenders, and our stakeholders.

Our success is dependent on the willingness of everyone within our business (including our mortgage broker mentees) to act in accordance with these enduring values and principles.

We must remember that misconduct by only a few can seriously discredit us, harm our reputation, and reflects poorly on all of us in the mortgage and finance industry.

Our Five Principles of Conduct:
– Conduct business with integrity and honesty
– Follow the letter and spirit of the law
– Treat everyone fairly
– Act in the best interests of our business and avoid conflicts of interest
– Protect the reputation of our business and our industry

No success is worth the expense of compromising ethical behavior in our business.
