Summary

In this training session, our CEO Shubha Dasgupta takes us through the weekly market update. He starts the meeting with rate updates for Prime and Alt Lenders. He highlights the rate percentage for insure, insurable, uninsured and rental. Inflation and the positive signs starting to emerge and what annual change has been happening in Canada were shared. The decline in employment is a labour concern; there has been a decline by 40k after 31k and 43k drops in June and July.

In relation to that, household debt is also rising, and the interest has doubled in a year. Having a conversation with clients to consolidate debts is super important. Real estate details, current market recap and what clients to focus on in today’s market were also discussed. Please refer to the related tab of this article to access the slide deck.
