Features

Paradigm Quest is the company to whom lenders delegate handling mortgage servicing and operation solutions. It is the first Canadian pure BPO dedicated to mortgages.

Paradigm has created service-oriented operations teams within its Operations Department to ensure a superior level of customer service. These teams provide dedicated client relationship management and, according to the website, ensure the best turnaround times in the industry.

In 2011, Paradigm Quest launched a customized end-to-end processing system called Revolutionary Universal Business Innovator (RUBI). To address the business needs of their clients, Paradigm Quest delivers automated and instant pre-approval turnarounds with RUBI. The company makes improvements to the system where necessary based on constant analysis of vast amounts of data. As stated on the website, Paradigm’s brand and mortgage broker partners are getting a more consistent level of service with RUBI. Besides, RUBI has great delicensing opportunities in Canada.

Pros and cons

For financial institutions, outsourcing activities (such as mortgage servicing and operation solutions) can benefit from cost reduction and service quality improvement. Here are the advantages of partnering with Paradigm Quest for lenders.

Pros

  • Cost-effective mortgage operating solutions for any lending organization in any industry.

  • Risk management procedures are designed to ensure business functionality in the event of a failure.

  • Service-oriented operations teams provide dedicated client relationship management.

  • A high-tech integrated lender underwriting and servicing platform already highly rated by Paradigm’s partners.

  • An opportunity to outsource not only mortgage operating solutions but also other activities – such as call center and collections services.

  • As for advantages for homeowners, Canadian families get access to various mortgage solutions tailored to meet their needs.

Cons

  • Homeowners, though, need to check loan conditions with the lenders carefully to ensure they are in line with their needs.

For lenders, there are no apparent disadvantages as such.

Loan conditions

Paradigm Quest offers both fixed-rate and adjustable-rate mortgages.

With Paradigm's 50/50 mortgage product, borrowers can take 50% of the mortgage at a 5-year fixed rate and the rest 50% — at a 5-year adjustable rate. In addition, there is an option to lock the adjustable rate to a fixed rate at any time for the rest of the mortgage term.

For borrowers looking for more significant amounts, Paradigm Quest offers a home equity line of credit (HELOC). With a HELOC, your home serves as collateral for your line of credit.

Borrowers searching for lower interest rates without the extra features in the mortgage product can apply for a no-frills mortgage. With this type of mortgage, you can count on a 5-year fixed-rate term with reduced cost. However, while you benefit from a lower interest rate, beware of the potentially limited prepayment privileges and penalties for early payoff.

Methods of loan funding

Paradigm Quest doesn’t provide any information on the loan funding methods on the website. However, since they are a BPO company, you can check this information with the lenders that Paradigm partners with.

What to pay attention to when applying for a loan from Paradigm Quest

  1. The company must have a license if it runs business in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
  2. You can check the availability of the relevant license (copy) at the branch of the lending company.
  3. Membership in a self-regulatory organization (SRO) is an additional guarantee of the reliability of the lending company. This information can also be checked at the company's branch or on its official website.
  4. Availability of lending policies.
  5. The procedure for applying for a loan.
  6. The procedure for concluding the loan agreement and receiving the payment schedule.
  7. Other conditions for granting loans.

We recommend

  1. To check out the interest rates and frequency. 
  2. Check the availability of individual terms in the loan agreement (principal amount, term, date of advance, etc.).
  3. Check whether the loan agreement contains information about the total cost of borrowing.
  4. Take time to think – you can change your mind before agreeing or signing a loan agreement.
  5. Speed of loan processing.
  6. Accessibility – alternative lenders often operate where there are no bank branches.
  7. For the borrower - high interest on the loan.
  8. For an investor, the safety of funds is not guaranteed by the state.
