Financial Brokers are “go-betweens” who typically liaise with banks and credit unions on a client’s behalf to arrange home loans, life cover, income protection, commercial finance, business financial planning, car loans, insurance and investments.

Financial Brokers tend to work for banks, building societies, financial planning organisations and many work for themselves.
