We represent our members to shape positive industry change, through direct engagement with all levels of government, regulators and other industry bodies.

We are involved in both formal and informal advocacy activities, participating in industry consultations, submissions, roundtables and inquiries, bringing a “coal-face” perspective of the mortgage and finance broking industry in our engagement with key stakeholders including ASIC, AFCA, ACCC and Treasury.

Through well-researched, evidence-based strategies and transparent communications with government, regulators and other industry bodies, the MFAA is a proven and respected representative of the industry.

The MFAA informs its advocacy approach through:

  • Professional government advisers to leverage connections to key decision-makers in Government and ensure our submissions are public and transparent.
  • The use of data to provide real evidence of the positive impact mortgage and finance brokers have on all Australian home buyers, small businesses and on employment and regional economic development.
  • Regular consultation with members to seek feedback on regulatory and government submissions.
  • Commitment to identifying, evaluating and effectively responding to emerging opportunities and threats
  • Commitment to collaboration with other industry associations on key issues.

We’re proud to lead from the front on the big issues that affect our industry, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to advocating for the industry on issues affecting brokers.
