It also discusses the impact broking has on Australia's economy, lender value proposition, and customer value proposition.

The report was released in the face of the increased scrutiny of the broker sector (the ordeal of broker remuneration), the focus of the PC's (Productivity Commission) review of the Australian financial system competition and the financial services royal commission.

The aim of the DAE report is to provide the most "up-to-date body of information" about the mortgage industry to broaden the information about the role of mortgage brokers ( in the market for policymakers. It explains how important brokers are to the economy, the consumer, and to small lenders.

  • The dimensions and the history of the brokering industry
  • The value mortgage brokering brings to the economy
  • The benefits and outcomes for consumers
  • The value potential of brokers for lenders

More insights from the report included how mortgage brokers encourage competitive pricing and boost consumer's options and services.
