What are MERIX and Lendwise? How are they Different?
MERIX and Lendwise are the options that cater to the “A deals” in your portfolio. While the product offerings, policies, and dedicated underwriter and sales support are the same on both options, the primary difference between the two is compensation.
The MERIX option pays you trailer fees and allows you to benefit from having a continual income stream and build a book of business that has ongoing value. Trailers are above and beyond what you will be paid at closing and you will continue to earn commissions annually in the form of trailers fees for the duration of the original MERIX deal. Click here for more details on the MERIX compensation.
If trailer fees aren’t the solution for you, Lendwise is a tier-based option that focuses on maximizing your upfront commission. Earn more on each of your Lendwise deals with enhanced compensation on each tier, including additional compensation on Insured/Insurable deals and a monthly efficiency bonus.

What is NPX?
For our brokers in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario, we are pleased to offer NPX for your alternative/near-prime clients. NPX offers great programs with competitive rates and fees for clients that need more considered than just their credit including salaried, business for self, new credit and credit damaged clients, and those seeking investment property financing. NPX also offers unique products and features such as interest-only options and qualifying at contract rate. If you have an alternative deal or have any questions about NPX, please contact the NPX Sales desk.
