The RMD Podcast #23: HW Media Founder and CEO Clayton Collins
The RMD Podcast returns with a brand new episode featuring the Founder and CEO of HW Media, Clayton Collins. In this episode, Collins offers his perspective on the promise of the reverse mortgage industry, and how RMD fits into the overarching mission of HW Media and its other brands; covering the full breadth of the housing industry.
He also describes his own introduction to housing media, how he became acquainted with the reverse mortgage category, and how the American retirement system will need to acknowledge the housing asset in the future.
Here’s a short preview of the interview you can find in the episode, lightly edited for concision and clarity:
Chris Clow: What kinds of opportunities just in terms of your absorption of reverse, particularly recently, do you think could be coming for that industry in the near future?
Clayton Collins: If we thought that housing equity was going to be critical and housing wealth was going to be the key to funding retirement for this rapidly expanding baby boomer generation, that thesis has only gotten stronger as home prices across the country have skyrocketed in the last year-and-a-half. So, I get super excited and bullish on the future of helping homeowners access housing wealth, and use the equity they have in their homes to fund the things that they want and need to do in retirement.
I’m excited to be on the mortgage side, and hopefully provide this end of the market the information they need to expand their businesses, and make smarter and faster decisions. We’re aggressive and fast around here, and we hope we can help the reverse sector be just as aggressive and fast as they seek to meet this market need.
