Canadian financial technology company launches lender as it sets out to create the best digital mortgage journey from online search to close
TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Ratehub Inc. has launched its own Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) approved lender under CanWise Financial. The move supports Ratehub Inc.'s vision of becoming the best digital mortgage company for Canadian consumers.
As a lender, Ratehub Inc. will have the ability to work with more financial institutions, not just the ones in the brokerage space. This will give Ratehub Inc. customers access to more mortgage products and even better rates.
"Our own lender, CanWise Financial, will now be one of the options in the Ratehub mortgage marketplace," said James Laird, Co-CEO of Ratehub Inc. and President of CanWise Financial. "This will give Canadians more choice. Whether a consumer wants to go with our lender or a third-party lender, we will help them do so and walk them through the mortgage process, just like we would today."
"At Ratehub, no one understands the modern mortgage consumer better than we do," said Alyssa Furtado, Co-CEO of Ratehub Inc. and Co-Founder of Ratehub.ca. "The rate is the starting point, but the process to complete a mortgage is just as important. Lending allows us not only to deliver our promise of the best rates to our consumer, but it also allows us to be more innovative with the entire mortgage process."
Lending is the next evolution for Ratehub Inc. as it innovates in the mortgage industry. Ratehub Inc. started as a rate comparison website in 2010 and launched its in-house mortgage brokerage, CanWise Financial, in 2014. While comparisons are still initially provided by the Ratehub.ca website, many customers choose to continue into its full digital mortgage application and speak with a licensed mortgage agent. The agents help customers choose the most appropriate mortgage product from a wide range of providers and guide them through the entire process, from comparison all the way through to closing the mortgage.
