Ontario's largest credit union (Canada's 2nd biggest) has pulled most of its products from the broker market.
That includes popular offerings, like:
- Contract rate qualification mortgages (which aren't stress tested the same as bank mortgages, allowing customers to qualify for bigger loans)
- Uninsured HELOCs (including Meridian's 70% #LTV# revolving HELOC, which is 5%-points more LTV than banks allow on revolving credit lines)
- Non-income qualifying mortgages.
But why did Meridian pluck these crowd-pleaser products from the broker market—while leaving them in its retail channel?
