Reverse Mortgage Daily Changemakers: Class of 2020

The only true constant in the world is change, and for the reverse mortgage industry that seems to especially be the case.

Because the industry is often defined by factors that come from both evolving business necessities as well as changing political headwinds, the ability for the reverse mortgage product category to remain a reliable source of financial stability for seniors while also being flexible enough to adapt to changes requires a tricky — but highly necessary — balance.

That’s why the reverse mortgage industry needs visionaries: people who can both adapt to external change, while also innovating within the industry to try and remain ahead of the curve as new challenges and opportunities present themselves. These people are Changemakers.

After careful consideration, RMD has identified four individuals who have successfully and demonstrably helped to change the landscape of the reverse mortgage industry of late, and we have chosen to honor them as part of RMD’s inaugural class of Changemakers for 2020.

Over the next few weeks, RMD will announce this unique class of individuals and share in-depth interviews with each of them, in an effort to shine a light on what drives them to serve as forces for change in an industry often defined by it.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce the first two members of the 2020 class of Changemakers: American Advisors Group (AAG) CEO Reza Jahangiri, and National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA) CEO Peter Bell.
