Dominion Lending Centres (DLC) has announced that well-known economist Sherry Cooper has taken the position of chief economist.

She began her career at the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C. After five years at the Federal Reserve, she joined the Federal National Mortgage Association as director of financial economics. Cooper also served as chief economist and EVP of BMO Financial Group (which includes the Bank of Montreal in Canada and BMO Harris Bank in the U.S.).

“Joining DLC as chief economist represents a natural evolution in my career,” says Cooper in a news release. “For over 30 years I represented financial institutions by providing my insights into both the Canadian and global economies; now I am pleased to add my voice to an organization that provides choice directly to consumers. Mortgage professionals are really one of the best options for consumers seeking mortgage and financing advice for a home purchase, home debt consolidation, investment properties or home refinancing.”

Cooper will be advising on economic matters, issuing quarterly economic updates and other statements as they pertain to the economy and the mortgage sector on behalf of Dominion Lending Centres, the company says.
