If you're looking for entrepreneurial inspiration look no further than Gary Mauris.
He's just about the most powerful player in Canada's mortgage business, a guy who co-built a $77+ billion mortgage origination machine—starting with little mortgage experience. Now he heads what the company calls the largest broker network in Canada.
In MLN's exclusive interview Gary shares insights on everything from when the mortgage market will turn around, to RBC's HSBC purchase, to HSBC's mortgage broker expansion (yes, it's expanding despite RBC's offer), to competing with digital mortgage discounters, to the importance of Google for mortgage originators to an array of industry stats.
He even grills yours truly on my call five-odd years ago that half the brokers attending a particular convention would be out of business in five years. (As it turns out, almost 17,000 brokers and agents have left Ontario's mortgage industry in the last five years according to FSRAO.)
In any event, click the video below for a taste of what's ahead—as only a top industry leader like Mauris can explain it.
