Dean Alter is a credit and risk officer with vast experience working with high-income individuals, including medical professionals.

At BOQ Specialist, Dean oversaw huge growth in the bank’s annual home lending portfolio, which grew from $100 million in 2014, to approximately $6 billion by 2021.  He oversaw the development of credit and risks frameworks that ensured this level of growth was sustainable, and particularly enjoyed the opportunity to build strong relationships with medical clients via face-to-face conversations.

He understands that doctors are time-poor and therefore need advice and expertise, not just finance. To that end, Dean prides himself on thoroughly evaluating all finance, and working closely with our Relationship Directors and our clients to ensure that every risk and factor is considered and understood by all involved.

Away from the office, Dean loves his sport, and plays soccer and golf when he can.
