An agent? Anything to do with sales…

What do you think the market will do in 2015?

I believe we will have an upswing later this year (hopefully an interest hike) which will keep us very busy. The banks will be more favourable to give loans and clients are already “schooled” with what is expected from them with regards to deposits and costs. But we need to do the ground work now in order to be prepared and ahead of the rest.
