Hello to all of our partners. It’s been little over a year since we announced our newly rebranded name to Sagen from Genworth Canada. And, what a year it’s been for all of us! In that time, Brookfield acquired 100% ownership of our business, thus improving our Counter-party strength for our lenders. As a fully Canadian mortgage insurer, it also provided us with a solid foundation to grow our business and have the BEST FIRST YEAR EVER as Sagen. We couldn’t more proud of what we’ve accomplished so far. And, to succeed virtually in remote mode in such a challenging health environment is truly inspiring! Our success is attributed to our long-standing relationships with our lenders, brokers and mortgage industry customers. Our customers are at the centre of everything we do. We strive to understand your business goals and to help grow your business, reduce costs and originate high-quality loans. Our BEST FIRST YEAR EVER as Sagen produced key milestones to support the industry. Through the Homeownership Assistance Program, our Loss Mitigation team established alternative arrangements to keep borrowers in their homes during the pandemic. We introduced a major rebrand to enhance your experience via sagen.ca In the process we were awarded the 2021 Award of Excellence and an Award of Distinction for Corporate Identity. During one of the most significant underwriting changes announced in July, we stayed the course to support our customers. As a result, private MI’s served that portion of the market and we thank you for your support. The Brookfield purchase was an exciting development for our company and a vote of confidence on the Canadian mortgage industry. Sagen continues to be an MPC Preferred Training Partner, offering continuing education credits to keep the industry abreast of trends, insights and market knowledge. All these initiatives required partner collaboration for Lender Connections, and finding solutions for our lender’s customers. With all the change our industry has experienced, our brand promise will continue to hold true – to be the most trusted provider for the lending communities across Canada. I’d like to express our gratitude for all the trust and support that our lenders, mortgage brokers, realtors and industry partners have shown Sagen. This has been a phenomenal year in so many ways. Thank you for your partnership, collaboration, support and for the long-standing relationships that grow deeper by the year. I’m looking forward to our Best Second Year Ever.
