Barangaroo-based mortgage broker recognised as rising star

St Leonards, NSW (February 3, 2020) - A Barangaroo-based mortgage broker has been recognised in a prestigious list of the industry’s top rising stars.

Dot Financial’s Loui Daoud has been included in Mortgage Professional Australia magazine’s annual Young Guns report, sponsored by ING, spotlighting the 25 up-and-coming brokers aged 35 or under who have joined the industry and are already making names for themselves.

According to Connective’s broker support manager, Kavish Kamal, “Daoud is one of our most promising brokers to emerge out of Connective. Since taking over as his broker support manager earlier this year I have got to know him and his business in great detail. Since coming out of CBA as one of their top performers and opening his own broking business he has cemented himself as a top performer. He achieves phenomenal results for his clients based on his astute knowledge of lending and structuring deals, use of technology in streamlining his processes and workflow, and 100% commitment to clients, which is demonstrated in customer testimonials, all of which give glowing feedback.”

“Starting out in any new industry can have its challenges, but joining one that’s under such scrutiny and has experienced such uncertainty as the broking industry comes with additional hurdles. Despite that, the brokers featured on this year’s list have not only made it through but have done so with tremendous success,” says Mortgage Professional Australia editor Rebecca Pike. “Each of the 25 brokers who made it into this year’s Young Guns list began their journeys in 2018, when the royal commission hearings were in full swing and there was a significant threat to how brokers got paid. This has not stopped these new-to-industry brokers from achieving impressive volumes, building their client base and achieving a spot among the Young Guns for 2020.”
