Jennifer Anderson has been connected with the leadership team of the Advanced Group of Companies since February 2008 when she joined MBCI as a licensed mortgage agent. Today, Jennifer’s responsibilities are divided between MBCI (a FSCO-licensed mortgage brokerage), AAL (a FSCO-licensed mortgage administrator), AMIC (an exempt market issuer and lender) and ACC (a registered exempt market dealer).
For MBCI, she provides support and administration services for four sales agents including preparation and submission of new mortgage applications to lenders, condition fulfillment, client servicing, general support and agent training. Also on behalf of MBCI and its agents, Jennifer acts as an alternative lending resource and private lending specialist, preparing and submitting files to non-bank and non-AAL direct private investors. This includes preparation and completion of statutory private lending documents to ensure compliance with FSCO regulations.
Since its launch in 2012, Jennifer has been responsible for all aspects of AAL’s direct private mortgage investment (DPMI) operations including underwriting, funding, payment administration, collections, renewals, tax account administration, and discharges. She is the company’s primary liaison with mortgage agents (internal/MBCI and external/non-MBCI), investors, borrowers, lawyers, and realtors in the DPMI channel. She is responsible for the compliant completion of statutory private lender disclosures as well as know-your-client (“KYC”) reviews and mortgage suitability assessments. In that capacity, her work touches on financial planning, investment advice and long term retirement planning in the private mortgage lending context.
Before joining MBCI and AAL, Jennifer spent twenty years with the Bank of Nova Scotia where she took increasingly responsible positions that culminated in her final role as a Financial Advisor. She earned her PFP designation with the bank in 2005.
Jennifer completed the Mortgage Agents’ Course via Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals in 2009. She earned her broker’s license in 2011. Jennifer also holds her broker’s license in the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta.
Her work for MBCI is regulated by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (license # M08006868). Jennifer is also a member of Mortgage Professionals Canada.
She is involved with philanthropy as a member of MBCI charity committee. The committee organizes and participates in fundraising activities in support of local charities including the Ottawa Food Bank and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
