Now that ING has officially left the channel, brokers remember a company that was great to work with – but also one that has taught them a valuable lesson.

    I think this is great lesson for brokers, but one that didn't need to be learned the hard way.

    Well, the same for Firstline. All the volume Brokers who tied themselves to these guys, faithfully sending all clients their way. I am not a volume Broker, and I concentrate on seriously matching my client to certain lender, and spreading the business around to my main 4 lenders. I fit the need for each client. You know for a fact that nothing is a sure thing forever!

    What a shame such a good lender is out of our list of options to serve our clients, and even worse is that they are actually a new competitor as they continue direct to client offerings under some new brand! And the insult of not having a transition strategy so that my several hundreds of ING clients cannot work with me and the new ING. The billions of funded mortgages Scotia bought will be moved by myself and brokers who know to stay close to clients and are the advisors and point of contact to them when making any move with a mortgage,Be it,renewals ,refis, ports,all will go to our new partners even if I need forsake half my compensation to undercut them. Goodbye ING! It was very nice while it lasted but did you need to go out the door with a final insult!
