ICICI Bank Joins The Mortgage Broker Channel

Jeff Evans

Although I had heard of ICICI Bank previously, we as mortgage brokers did not have access to them for our clients, and the client would have to go directly to one of their few branches to obtain a mortgage. However, this has now changed, and I now have access to this relatively new bank. There is a good article on them at the Financial Post, talking about their quick rate of growth.

I did recently receive an announcement email from them, but it appears that they are starting slowly, which is normal for a new mortgage lender in the broker channel. Since they are one of the largest banks in India, and they are quickly growing in Canada, I am hopeful that they can shake things up a little amongst that banks.

I will be keeping my ears open about them in the future and be waiting to see if they become a viable option for my clients.

Are you looking for a mortgage specifically from ICICI Bank, or are you just looking for the best deal available for you? Fill out the form, let me know, and we can help you get whichever option you prefer.

This is a continuation of the article published here about the OSFI B20 morgage guidline changes for 2017.

If you are familiar with mortgage brokers at all (which you probably aren't) you would know that we also have alternative sources of lending for situations where a mortgage borrower will not qualify with a prime institution.  We have what we call "B" lenders, who have higher rates but more flexible lending criteria, and we have private lenders, which are individuals and corporations who can lend money on on anything that suits them.Read More

B20?  Is that some kind of vitamin?

It certainly sounds like a vitamin, but unfortunately, it is something else altogether.  The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions is the regulator for all federal mortgage lending institutions.  They set the regulations for mortgage companies like banks to follow (or ignore).

The latest updates to the B20 mortgage regulations could bring some potentially very disrupting changes to the real estate market, especially if you are wanting to get a mortgage in Vancouver, or you are a mortgage broker in Vancouver. In summary:Read More
