It’s been a while since our last lender market share update. In this instalment we’ve included non-broker channel lenders as well, courtesy of data from David McVay and McVay and Associates.
As you’ll see, the last 12 months have been a boon to some lenders and rather punishing to others.
Below are the largest federally regulated lenders (based on mortgages on balance sheet). This data is as of January 2014…

* Includes ING Direct, which Scotiabank acquired
BMO’s Low Rate Mortgage continues to drive its market share growth. Despite its restrictions, it remains the lowest advertised 5-year rate of any major bank.
ING’s and CIBC’s market share drops largely reflect the volume losses that resulted from leaving the broker channel.
Here are the current market share leaders in the broker space, as of Q4 2013…
TD Canada Trust
– 170 bps
– 460 bps
– 50 bps
– 40 bps
Overall broker channel volume fell 2.4% in Q4, year-over-year.
The big news is credit union growth. While still a small slice of the broker market (3.7% according to D+H), credit unions posted 41% volume growth in Q4, year-over-year.
Notable movers included MCAP (down a whopping 460 bps of share), First National and TD (up 350 and 360 basis points respectively).
Laurentian Bank moved from 8th to 15th and saw a 70.7% drop in volume year-over-year. That was largely due to B2B Bank’s temporary withdrawal from the market while it integrated AGF’s broker operations.
ATB Financial, which operates only in Alberta, rocketed from 17th to 11th place in the market share standings.
* Broker Market Source: D+H puts out a terrific non-public report called Lender Insights, which compiles lender market share data in the mortgage broker industry. We receive data from that report via third-party sources and have quoted it here. The data above is not confirmed, but is believed reliable. Note: These market share figures do not count MorWeb volumes (D+H’s smaller competitor).
