Our Story

Syndicate Lending Corporation’s vision was founded based on principles of Dedication, Customer Service & Trust.

Our journey started in the fall of 2015. When most commercial lending specialists were restricted to a single lender, we sensed a need for Commercial Lending Specialists who could offer a variety of Commercial Lending Options.

This is when our founder, Inam Qureshi, took a leap of faith that has helped change the lives of thousands of people. Fast forward, today; we are now a licensed boutique mortgage brokerage that has been recognized consistently as one of Canada’s top brokerages. Our goal right from the very first day was to be an independent firm that would strive toward achieving customer satisfaction. Our success mantra is very simple: We put our clients first.

As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption on our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider on our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.”

These words have been ingrained into our analysts who have a combined experience of over 100 years in the field of Banking. Our group put together has funded well over 1 Billion dollars in loans over the last decade. It has been our focus to build an ecosystem that symbiotically facilitates loan adjudication & funding using the proprietary systems that have been a trademark in our success. Presently, our atelier in Vancouver Core is where we welcome our guests to a bespoke experience. We intend to develop similar lounges across the lower mainland where our specialists can better assist our clients. Our commitment to pursue excellence will always follow as we transition into a Bank someday into the future.
