Finding Opportunity in Reverse
Presented by 
Ralph Rosynek

Are you prepared for one of the fastest growing origination opportunities? Loan origination activities for 2019 continue to reflect the fastest growing homeowner demographic, as 10,000 or more Americans reach age 62, needing specific retirement planning and resource tools as components to a financial longevity strategy. Today’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage will be one of those important components for many. Are you prepared to address the lending needs of older Americans with loan programs, product education, staffing and a marketing plan? Do you need to fast track this demographic to increase your potential growth and marketshare objectives? Let’s expedite the discussion and  begin a pathway to this growing origination opportunity. Presented by Ralph Rosynek, SVP of Moneyhouse.

9:30 am — 10:15 am
