What are your big questions?

The next issue of TMM will have our annual Round Table feature where a group of industry figures get together and discuss all the burning issues facing mortgage brokers.

We are running this session on Friday. If you have any questions or topics you would like to get answers to then please email them to me before COB Thursday.

We will have representatives from a big bank, one of the smaller banks and a couple of non-bank lenders. On the adviser side the PAA will be represented along with dealer group identities and of course a couple of advisers.

Please get your thinking cap on and email any questions to


No doubt one of the big issues will be the Financial Advisers Act Review. I have previously said that RFAs are likely to face a lot of change after this review. Out latest video is a must watch for anyone who is an RFA and may have to step up to AFA standards.

In it Mortgage Broker of the Year, Paul Fuller, tells you what it is like to be an AFA writing home loans.


It's all pretty quiet at the moment and economists are thinking about what the Reserve Bank will say at its next OCR announcement in just over two weeks time. We have assembled some of the comments here so you can get a feel for their thinking.

The news that NZ Post plans to sell 45% of Kiwibank to ACC and the Super Fund got me thinking. To see what I think of this deal have a read of this Blog.
