The NZ Mortgage Mag – Sink or Swim

A mortgage broker who offers to sell her business for "$1 or near offer" is a sign that all is not well in the industry. Just how tough is it out there and how are businesses coping?

Friday, June 20th 2008, 12:11PM
Our lead feature in this month's issue looks at 'how bad is business' and also how brokers are charting the stormy waters.

In our 'My Business' section, we talk to John Bolton about how he has put his financial neck on the line in setting up new business Squirrel, at a time when the market is depressed. Although that hasn't stopped this livewire from aiming for the big time! This article is an inspiration and an apt reminder that when times get tough, the tough get to business – many opportunities can come from difficult times. Be encouraged!

Brokers are being urged to diversify, but moving into new areas of advice is not without risk. In the last issue of NZ Mortgage Mag had an article that debated whether mortgage brokers should – or could – diversify into selling life insurance. We continue the debate this issue and also welcome your feedback. We have an Opinion piece from the managing director of Special Risk Services, Brian Klee, on his views and also another feature by Steve Hart who talks to brokers who have made the move about their experiences.

Document, document, document! We investigate how to protect yourself from complaints and guess what – documenting is the best and most effective way to cover your bases so deals and clients don't come back to haunt you, according to NZMBA's Megan Salt.

This issue we profile Ian Webb, mortgage chair of the Professional Advisers Association, about his love of diggers, setting up his own construction lending business NewBuild Home Finance and why he's in charge of the competitive push being made by the PAA.
