Finance has traditionally been a very male-dominated industry, but we are now seeing a stronger tendency for women to succeed in finance, especially mortgage brokerage.
That’s according to Chelsea Huggard, finance broker at MAKE Finance Group, who says it’s good to see strong, capable women supporting each other, especially in traditionally male-dominated industries.
“Our company believes that fairness means success in our roles is different for each of us,” says Chelsea. “Not only does the company provide the support and technology to help us achieve our business goals, but they also understand that an important part of our success is being able to achieve the right work/life balance and that balance is different for each of us.”
For Chelsea, it’s about being able to work full-time but having the flexibility to work different hours as the needs of the business and family change.
For Chris, Admin Manager and Financial Broker, it’s about being able to reduce his hours to four days a week, and for Broker’s Assistant Sarah, it’s about working part-time and ‘gradually increase her working hours and days as her children get older.
The company provides the team with the technology and flexibility to work effectively remotely if needed, so they can still meet business and customer needs, but also meet their personal and family needs.
Chelsea, Chris and Sarah will spend International Women’s Day with like-minded women at the Business Women Albury Wodonga luncheon, hosted at the SS&A.
MAKE Finance Group opened its doors around six years ago, with Chris working in the business since 2019, Chelsea arriving in 2021 and Sarah joining the team at the end of last year.
“As other finance providers cut local services and no longer provided people with great customer service, we saw an opportunity to use our experience and knowledge to help fill this gap in the market,” says Chelsea.
Working with Chief Financial Officer Geoff Michael, the expert four-person team assists individuals and businesses with a wide range of financing options, from first-time homebuyers and refinances to investors, loans corporate and asset finance.
“Our wealth of experience is a major asset,” says Chelsea. “Within the group, we have more than 80 years of experience in finance; Chris has worked in banking with CBA and ANZ for over 30 years, Chelsea with CBA for over 20 years and Sarah with BankWAW for five years.
“Getting funded can be a daunting experience for some people and having experienced, friendly people like us to help them through the process really makes a difference. We can help you with all aspects of your financial needs. We strive to ensure that we understand each client’s unique situation, short and long term goals, and why they are important to them. »
The company also supports active participation in Albury Wodonga Women in Business, which offers a wide range of resources to help women achieve their business goals.
