CIBC’s annual report is now pegging a dollar figure to the closure of FirstLine, the move appearing to cost the bank $20 million in revenue for fiscal 2012.

    Once again a very unbalanced article. Who cares what their revenue was? Without knowing costs it's irrelevant ! They stated th left the market due to an unprofitable channel. Knowing their net contribution would have been an interesting fact. But without that, this is it inflamatory reporting, again.

    In the last 2 years I had been consciously choosing other lenders for my clients, however in the previous years Firstline had enjoyed a large percentage of my business. Since the announcement that CIBC was going to divest itself of the Firstline unit, and ultimately their decision to wind up the Firstline operations I have been diverting all renewals to other lenders. In all cases it has been in the client's best interests due to rate and other considerations,and of course I get paid! I believe that going forward CIBC will understand that we the brokers are not going to go quietly into that good night and let them have OUR clients for free!
