Mortgage investments and Private Lending
As a private lender, CMI offers Canadians the ability to invest in high quality Canadian residential mortgage investments – one of the fastest growth trends among high net-worth investors and the ultra-wealthy due to their attractive return potential, low correlation to stock markets and a good balance of risk and return.
Thanks for contacting us! We will get in touch with you shortly.
What is a private lender?
A private lender provides mortgage funding to a single borrower who is unable to obtain financing through more traditional lenders, like the banks and credit unions due to a variety of circumstances. These mortgages are usually offered at a higher interest rate along with some related fees, making them an attractive investment opportunity – and one that also offers the added security of collateralized real estate.
Investors in our mortgage investment program can be an individual or a small syndication of individuals who pool their money to fund a single mortgage transaction. Through CMI, Canadian investors can gain access to Canada’s historically strong real estate market without the hassle of direct home ownership.
Diversify your fixed income investments with mortgages
CMI Mortgage Investments helps both new and experienced investors find the right mortgage investment that meets their unique investment objectives and can deliver attractive returns. As one of the fastest growing alternative lenders in Canada, we’ve helped thousands of investors find a mortgage investment that’s best suited to their unique needs.
As a CMI investor, you’ll benefit from:
A curated selection of attractive investment opportunities
We’ll identify and send you carefully chosen mortgage investment opportunities that are uniquely suited to your specific investment objectives and risk tolerance. Our distinct Mortgage Matching Process ensures you receive only those opportunities that match your unique investor profile. You’ll get to choose if this investment is right for you – there’s no need to keep checking back with us or battle with other investors.
Rigorous due diligence and asset management process
Each and every mortgage application that we present to you has been carefully scrutinized and thoroughly reviewed as part of our stringent underwriting process. Risk and fraud management are essential cornerstones of our funding formula. We partner with leading law firms across the country to produce the legal documentation for a faster and more efficient closing process. After closing, all our mortgages are serviced and administered by CMI Mortgage Services, a Mortgage Administrator licensed under the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRAO), enabling us to offer a full-service solution in-house to all our investors.
