Things to Consider Before Getting Started
At the heart of our mission is unwavering transparency for our valued investors. We recognize the significance of your hard-earned capital and are committed to treating it with the utmost respect. We firmly believe in empowering you, the investor, with the knowledge and tools to actively monitor your mortgage investments, even within a managed investment fund.
Before embarking on your mortgage investing journey, particularly in the case of offerings like mortgage investment corporations (MICs), it’s crucial to note that shares must be acquired through an exempt market dealer (EMD), with the guidance of an exempt market dealer registered and approved by the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) in Ontario.
An exempt market dealer (EMD) will determine whether you are a qualified candidate based on, but not limited to, your financial net worth, financial assets, income, or minimum investment. It will then be determined whether the investment is actually suitable for you.
- You should understand the nature of the investment, its potential, and also its inherent risks.
- You should be aware of any possible or potential conflicts of interest and relationship disclosures.
- You should be given the opportunity to ask plenty of questions before and after reviewing the Offering Memorandum, (OM), and other literature.
- You should be assisted by a primary contact at the firm’s head office in the event that you have any questions or concerns.
- You should be receiving concise and easy-to-understand statements along with your dividend check.
- You should be entitled to annual audited financial statements by a reputable CA firm.
- You should be receiving ongoing data on investments in your investment portfolio.

How Do I Purchase Shares?
Integrated Equities Inc. serves as the exempt market dealer for New Haven Mortgage Income Fund (1) Inc. A dedicated representative will guide you to streamline your investment journey, assisting you in establishing an Investor Account and completing the subscription agreement for New Haven Mortgage Income Fund (1) Inc. Once your funds are received, they are seamlessly exchanged into company shares. Each investor is entitled to one (1) preferred share for every one (1) dollar invested, granting the investor a proportional stake in the mortgage income earned by the fund.
When investing with RRSP, the investor instructs their trustee (usually a bank or trust company) to deposit funds on their behalf into the fund. The trustee receives the preferred share certificate and holds the certificate “In Trust” on behalf of the shareholder (i.e. for a typical $150,000 investment, the investor would receive preferred shares with a par value of $150,000.)
