The investment objective of the Fund is to provide tax-advantaged monthly cash distributions while preserving capital.


  • In-house mortgage origination from one of the largest and most experienced teams in Canada.
  • Tax-advantaged monthly distributions with an initial monthly target annual distribution of 6.0% (pre-tax equivalent of 8.77%), paid monthly.
  • The Fund will invest primarily in short-term bridge mortgages (12 to 36 months), which typically bear higher rates of interest than traditional debt financing.
  • Mortgages will be secured primarily by multi-unit residential and commercial income producing properties where the principal and interest can be serviced from cash flows generated by the underlying Properties.
  • Each mortgage's Loan-to-Value (LTV) will not exceed 85%, and the weighted average LTV of the entire Portfolio will not exceed 75%.


First National believes that the fundamentals for real estate investment and development remain favourable in Canada providing an attractive market for mortgage lending in high quality real estate assets.

  • Demand for mortgage financing has remained stable as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and pension funds continue to raise capital to acquire new assets.
  • An abundance of domestic and foreign investment capital continues to be deployed in Canadian direct real estate equity investments
  • Canadian real estate prices have appreciated recently and are expected to remain stable
