Better lending: a conversation between Nima and MBA - Blog | Blend

Highlights from a candid conversation between Nima and MBA

We love what we do. Likewise, we love sharing what we do. Conversations around operational transparency, like the one that our CEO Nima Ghamsari recently had with the Mortgage Bankers Association, provide the level of insight that we hope to see become the norm across the industry. Here are three of Nima’s key takeaways on what better lending means to us as an organization, as a team, and as drivers of a continually improving lending process.

Better lending means encouraging the American dream

When we say that accessibility is at the core of our platform, we are driven by an appreciation for the opportunities that access to capital provides. In his interview, Nima referenced a cultural pulse that remains intact despite significant shifts in the housing industry over the years: “We continue to see that homeownership is a goal across generations.” From a young couple’s first home to a retiree’s last settling place, homeownership is a timeless indicator of safety, security, and serenity. Let’s help grant this for everyone.

Better lending means engaging in ceaseless collaboration

From the beginning, our guiding sentiment has been “partnership over disruption.” Transformative change doesn’t occur in a silo. It requires interaction and engagement with the people who — every day — face the challenges we hope to solve. As Nima noted, “We’ve made tremendous strides with our lender partners, but there’s still work to be done.” Every day we are encouraged by the incredible successes our partners achieve, fueling our continued passion now and into the future.

Better lending means enacting the future we want to see

Nima couldn’t have been any clearer. “When we think about Blend’s future, we’re thinking five, ten, fifty years down the road.” The solutions we develop aren’t stopgaps. They aren’t temporary measures. They are sustainable, long-term improvements that will continue to make lending better for decades to come. Our continued work toward our vision of supporting stronger financial futures requires respect not only for the needs of our current customers, but also for many generations’ customers to come.
