San Diego Metro Magazine Honors Justin Grant with Top 40 Under 40 Award

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2021 – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), a recognized industry leader in mortgage risk management providing pipeline hedging, best execution loan sales and centralized lock desk services, announced that its Director of Investor Services, Justin Grant, was named to San Diego Metro (SD Metro) Magazine’s prestigious Top 40 Under 40 list for 2021.

Mr. Grant was recognized for his ongoing contributions to the mortgage banking industry, most notably his leveraging of complex hedging models and utilizing software to create new efficiencies for secondary marketing departments within residential lending entities. He pioneered MCT’s BAM Marketplace, the world’s first truly open mortgage loan exchange, where buyers can bid regardless of approval status, and sellers receive automated live pricing from every buyer on the platform.

“I feel privileged that SD Metro has acknowledged my efforts as a leading professional in my field and the contributions I have made for the San Diego County community,” remarked Grant. “This award is a huge honor for me, as well as a reflection of all the dedicated and talented staff at MCT that have contributed tremendously alongside myself. Without their efforts, we wouldn’t be able to be at the forefront of technology and driving innovation in the mortgage industry.”

The winners were acknowledged at a virtual ceremony where a video presentation highlighting each of the 40 winners was shown and awards were mailed out separately to the recipients.

Mr. Grant is a well known expert on the subject of capital markets for the mortgage industry. He is often invited to speak on secondary marketing panels and attends national as well as state-based mortgage banking conferences. Mr. Grant graduated Cum Laude from the University of California, San Diego, and can often be found shooting well over par on the city’s many golf courses.
