HousingWire Honors Guaranteed Rate’s Jeremy Collett as a 2021 Finance Leader
May 4, 2021 (CHICAGO) – Guaranteed Rate, one of America’s top 5 retail mortgage lenders, congratulates Jeremy Collett, Executive Director of Capital Markets, for being recognized as a 2021 HousingWire Finance Leader.
The inaugural 2021 Finance Leaders award recognizes top finance executives who are driving financial performance, expanding margins, improving liquidity and helping their businesses access the capital markets.
"The last twelve months have been one of the most tumultuous and action-packed periods in the history of housing finance. It's incredibly notable that the organizations that had their financial strategy in order prevailed and were able to benefit from housing and capital marketing dynamics in a big way,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. “We launched the HousingWire Finance Leaders award to recognize the CFOs and senior finance executives who enabled growth, led IPOs and fundraising initiatives and helped their companies capture market share.”
HousingWire named Collett a Finance Leader for his contribution to Guaranteed Rate’s rapid rise within the mortgage industry. Since joining the company more than 10 years ago, Collett has built and now leads Guaranteed Rate Companies’ Capital Markets Department, which currently manages more than $60 billion in assets.
As Executive Director of Capital Markets, Collett manages a massive engine of revenue on the secondary markets and oversees trading, securitization, interest rate risk management, product pricing and investor relations for Guaranteed Rate. In 2020, Collett’s critical insight on market conditions and emerging trends contributed to a record-breaking year, in which Guaranteed Rate Companies funded more than $73 billion in total loan volume.
“This recognition is more than deserved,” said Ted Ahern, Guaranteed Rate’s Chief Investment Officer. “Guaranteed Rate’s incredible market growth year in, year out is only possible because of leaders like Jeremy, who for the past decade has been an invaluable part of our success and helped drive us through such an unprecedented 2020.”
