Principal Lender

Panduka Gunawardena

My journey in the world of finance began in 2013 when I graduated with a B. Com in Accounting and Economics from Deakin University in Australia. But life had other plans for me – a sudden setback forced me to return home, delaying my path for 2.5 years.


But here’s the thing about setbacks – they can either break you or make you stronger. I chose the latter. In 2017, I rolled up my sleeves and took my first step into the finance industry as a Personal Banker. It was a humble beginning, but my commitment to hard work, honesty, and customer-focused solutions quickly propelled me forward. Over the course of five years, I steadily advanced within ANZ Bank, ultimately assuming the role of Mobile Lending Manager.


During this journey that I realized my true passion – connecting with people on a deeper level, understanding their unique needs, and offering personalised solutions. I saw firsthand how impactful this approach could be, which led me to establish “Top Lenders Australia”. My vision is simple: to be your guide, your advocate, and your partner in achieving your financial goals. I’m here to educate you every step of the way, navigate those tough decisions, and ensure you have the knowledge and confidence to make informed choices.
