Auckland, New Zealand (September 2020) – An Auckland-based mortgage adviser has been recognised in a prestigious list showcasing the top advisers in the industry.

iConsult’s Satyan Mehra has been included in NZ Adviser’s annual Top Advisers report. Now in its fourth year, the report ranks New Zealand’s top 30 mortgage advisers of 2020.

The ‘well-connected’ Mehra started his career as an advisor, auditor and analyst at the Bank of New Zealand before moving to ANZ, where he spent three years as a business manager. He started up iConsult Mortgage Brokers in 2017, which quickly developed a reputation for its deep knowledge of commercial and residential lending structures, and for securing simple, transparent lending arrangements. Mehra is described by industry colleagues as a ‘real people person who walks the talk – if he gives you a commitment, he’ll follow it through.’ Mehra’s accolades include Young Entrepreneur of the Year – Indian Business Awards, November 2019 and Best Financial Advisor of the Year – Indian Business Awards, November 2018.

“Our 30 top advisers this year settled a combined value of $2,838,661,153 across 7,799 total loans – an outstanding result for everybody who made the list,” says NZ Adviser news editor Ksenia Stepanova. “The report asked advisers to provide some key performance metrics from the past 12 months to uncover the top adviser in the industry. Competition was tougher than ever this year and the winning advisers hail from all over New Zealand, representing the main centres of Auckland, Christchurch as well as Hamilton, Arrowtown, Raglan, Cambridge, and other regions. The report is based on the total value of loans settled in the past 12 months, with all figures subject to confirmation by each adviser’s aggregator(s).
