********************************

Since Xceed pulled out of the subprime market in March, the company has primarily been limited to selling regular high-ratio insured mortgages.  These new mortgages give Xceed a nice product boost.

VP of Marketing & Sales, Colleen Adams, says: “Our goal is to foster relationships with a select group of brokers.” The company will do that by focusing on a smaller pool of brokers who commit to higher volumes and funding ratios.  (This is a small trend we’re seeing nowadays)

Adams continues:  “Our (new) conventional product offers rates dependent on the amortization the consumer chooses for their mortgage.  With reduced amortization risk, we offer the consumer a lower interest rate…”

As for specific niches targeted by these products, Adams highlighted the following:

  • “We will finance up $1.5 million on purchases or refinances, without a sliding scale.”
  • “On top of our standard 80% rental offset for rental properties we will also take into consideration a 50% rental offset on fully contained basement units.”
  • “Another key area of focus for us is the new entrants to Canada (market); as we feel this is an untapped market with great potential.”
