ANZ has been named Australia’s lender of the year.

The major lender was recognised last night at the inaugural Australian Lending Awards held at The Westin hotel in Sydney.

The award honours the best lender in the Australian mortgage space at the current time.

ANZ’s general manager specialist businesses Glenn Haslam told Real Estate Business that the bank was thrilled with the win, considering how much competition there is presently between majors.

“It is always nice to win an award, but this one is something else. It is great to get some recognition for all our hard work,” Mr Haslam said.

“Competition between lenders has increased dramatically of late, so it is good to know that we are still recognized by both brokers and consumers as being the number one lender.”

The Australian Lending Awards takes into account the opinions of 6,000 borrowers and 500 mortgage brokers and are based on the actual experience that consumers and brokers have had with lenders in the market.

Other winners from The Australian Lending Awards were:


Bankwest - Best first home buyer lender

ANZ - Best investor lender

Westpac - Best self-employed lender

ING DIRECT - Best customer experience

CBA - Best third party operator

CUA - Best mutual

Homeloans - Best non-bank

CBA - Best innovator

Advantedge - Best wholesale funder

ING DIRECT - Best online operator

Lisa Montgomery CEO at RESI - Best thought leader
