San Diego Business Journal Once Again Names MCT® as Best Places to Work 2021 

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept.,16,  2021  – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), an industry-leading mortgage hedge advisory firm, announced that it has been named Best Places to Work 2021 by the San Diego Business Journal (SDBJ). MCT was ranked number 37 in the medium-sized company category (50 – 249 U.S. employees). The award is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in San Diego that benefit the county’s economy, workforce, and local businesses.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in downtown San Diego, MCT has grown from a pipeline hedging services specialist into a fully-integrated provider of capital markets services and software. MCT employs over 100 people and has continued to grow despite the pandemic. The company’s leadership group has made it a point of pride to always go beyond the call of duty to ensure all staff are taken care of.

“We knew through disruptions in the bond market and the unease of our clients at the onset of the pandemic that we would have to take measures to ensure workplace harmony and happiness,” said Curtis Richins, President, MCT. “After the decision to move our employees to WFH, we provided a stipend to set up home offices, created a channel for employees to communicate freely with HR, and constantly solicited feedback about how we could make their workdays more enjoyable and productive. At the end of the day, we are all human beings.”

The SDBJ puts companies that applied for the award through an extensive evaluation process that includes a detailed analysis of company workplace policies and practices along with a comprehensive employee survey. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. The winning companies were honored at an awards ceremony hosted by the SDBJ on September 6 virtually.
