A Message from Steve Camp


$1 BILLION AND GROWING. As we approach the end of the third quarter, we can already see that 2017 will be another record year for Cameron Stephens. We recently reached our landmark goal of $1 billion in assets under management and are on track to achieve $2 billion by 2020 and $5 billion by 2025. As Sr. VP, it’s great to see this “boutique” mortgage lender push the boundaries and explore exciting new opportunities.

Superior service will always be the cornerstone of our business, so as we grow we keep working hard to keep our clients satisfied:

  • We’re making it easier for potential investors to participate in our projects and earn solid risk-adjusted returns while preserving their capital.
  • We’ve refreshed cameronstephens.com to give visitors easier access to the key features of our products and services, insight on market trends, real-time rates and more.
  • We’ve added short features to our popular DealTalk™ videos. These dynamic segments bring to life the projects we’ve worked on in a format that’s easy to watch and share. Take a look.

We’re proud of the work we’ve done and continue to do with innovative real estate developers across Canada. In this business, timing is everything. As our base of clients and investors expands, we aim to grasp their needs quickly and deliver practical financing solutions with peak efficiency.

Here’s to 2018!
