CMI hits the $1bn mark

CMI Financial Group, a prominent name in Canada’s private lending space, has announced that it has surpassed $1 billion in mortgage fundings since 2015, a record that its founder and CEO Bryan Jaskolka described as a “milestone achievement.”

The executive said CMI was “excited and extremely proud” to hit that landmark figure, paying tribute to the performance of its team and saying it reflected the company’s commitment to creating an unsurpassed client journey.

“This is a true team achievement and the culmination of our collective mission to provide a client experience that is unmatched in our industry,” he said. “It recognizes our commitment to providing flexible, customized lending solutions to a diverse range of borrowers, while providing investors and advisors with compelling, high-quality real-estate backed alternative investment products.”

Among the accolades won by the company this year include a place on Canadian Mortgage Professional’s Best Mortgage Employers 2021 list, its third consecutive year winning that award.

Jaskolka said that the achievement showed the success of CMI’s approach to the private lending market, with the company having started out on the mortgage brokering side 15 years ago before becoming a private lender and prominent non-bank financial services provider.

“This milestone achievement is the realization of our founding vision to make the private market more accessible to marginalized borrowers in a fair, transparent and ethical manner,” he said. “We have the best team in the business, and together we scaled that vision to become Canada’s pre-eminent private residential mortgage originator.

“We remain steadfastly committed to furthering the evolution and reputation of the private lending industry for the benefit of borrowers, brokers and investors alike.”
