Toronto, Ontario – April 1, 2022. MCAN Mortgage Corporation d/b/a MCAN Financial Group (“MCAN” or the “Company”) (TSX: MKP), a leading Canadian real estate investment firm, today unveiled a new brand identity and announced that it will now be doing business as MCAN Financial Group. The trade name change reflects the strategic vision of the executive leadership team and Board of Directors, and is not a legal name change.
“This is a milestone moment in the evolution of MCAN, a company with more than 30 years of experience delivering value to shareholders, partners, and clients,” said Karen Weaver, President and CEO. “This rebrand not only reflects the scope and breadth of all that we do, it also represents a new phase for our Company – one defined by continued focus on growth, fueled by ingenuity, backed by real estate expertise and manifested by collaborative, fulfilling partnerships both internally and externally.”
MCAN, a federally regulated mortgage investment corporation since 1991, offers investment opportunities across many types of Canadian real estate, primarily focused on residential development and home ownership, by leveraging its real estate expertise. MCAN’s lines of business include MCAN Home, MCAN Capital and MCAN Wealth.
MCAN Financial Group recently reported total assets of $3.8 billion at December 31, 2021, an increase of 40% from December 31, 2020 and an increase of 78% from December 31, 2018. This level of growth has been achieved across all asset classes. MCAN also reported total shareholder return CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 14% over the past five years.
“In 2021, we achieved our best results not only financially, but also from a cultural perspective, growing as a team dedicated to diversity and excellence,” said Weaver.
MCAN Financial Group recently earned certification as a Great Place to Work®, in addition to recognition for service and product innovation in its MCAN Home business channel. MCAN has also been placed on the ROB Magazine Women Lead Here benchmark list for gender diversity in corporate Canada for the last three years.
“We’re a diverse team with many unique stories. Our culture has never been stronger, and our team has never functioned better,” said Weaver. “That level of experience and efficiency helps us approach every deal with the goal of mutual success. We value the trust our partners place in us to help build the right solution for their clients whether they are home owners, residential builders, or investors in our company who are seeking their opportunity to invest in their own slice of the Canadian real estate market. We look forward to reporting on our further successes as we continue to build the business.”
