Established in 2005, our flagship fund, First Circle Mortgage Investment Corporation, invests primarily in good quality residential first mortgages secured upon properties situated throughout Southwestern British Columbia. First Circle MIC’s lending policy is that the loan amount shall never exceed 75% of the appraised value of the secured property. As of September 30, 2022 the mortgage portfolio stands at $190 million, consisting of 252 mortgages and having an average loan to property value ratio of 53%.
First Circle Mortgage Investment Corporation has a professional and experienced management team and is governed by a Board of Directors with extensive industry experience. On a quarterly basis, management prepares a report to shareholders detailing the fund’s performance and a corresponding dividend is distributed. Annual financial reports are produced in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the company undergoes an annual review by the firm’s independent auditors, MNP LLP.
Because of the tax flow-through characteristics of MICs, purchasing preferred shares of First Circle Mortgage Investment Corporation is an excellent option for retirement savings. They provide a steady and stable investment plus a superior yield to most interest-bearing investment options. Preferred Shares of First Circle Mortgage Investment Corporation can be purchased through Self-Directed RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs, and TFSAs. We are happy to assist investors with setting up a Self-Directed plan with one of our approved trustees. Preferred Shares of First Circle Mortgage Investment Corporation are also an excellent option for investors seeking a stable and reliable stream of income from their invested funds.
Due to new regulations put in place by the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) in February 2020, Mortgage Investment Entities such as First Circle MIC are no longer able to sell shares directly to the public. Our industry is now obligated to use the services of Exempt Market Dealers (EMDs) to raise capital. EMDs are companies registered with the BCSC and authorized to trade in exempt market products, such as MIC preferred shares. They are thus deemed fit to ascertain whether investing in First Circle MIC is suitable for a potential investor.
We have partnered up with Silver Maple Ventures dba FrontFundr in this regard.
