Paul Shahinian


Paul founded Econ-Finance 17 years ago after observing a gap in the mortgage market. To fill the gap between lenders and their customers, Paul created a firm that looked at client needs first then packaged clients for suitable lenders. Econ-Finance gave borrowers a valuable advocate - a broker with the experience required to guide borrowers toward their goals.

Paul’s unwavering commitment to getting the job done for his clients has seen Econ-Finance grow to where it is today. His commitment to customer satisfaction has seen him pick up some silverware along the way, too.

Paul has been recognised by Mortgage Professionals Australia as a ‘Top 100 Broker’ for residential loans and a ‘Top 40 Commercial Broker.’ And PLAN Australia nominated Paul for ‘Broker of the Year,’ and Econ-Finance for New South Wales ‘Business of the year.’

When he is not busy accepting awards, Paul enjoys shooting hoops.

He holds a Diploma of Law (University of Sydney), in addition to Postgraduate qualifications in Mortgage Broking, Mortgage Lending and Financial Services.
