WHAT IS A MORTGAGE INVESTMENT CORPORATION?
Click to open

A mortgage investment corporation (MIC) is a corporation where individual investors, either directly or indirectly with an RRSP, TFSA or RRIF, pool their investment capital through the purchase of the shares of the MIC, which are then deposited with Computershare Trust. The NLMIC lend monies by way of mortgages exclusively to Nautical Lands Group projects. The mortgage portfolio is continually managed and the proceeds from repaid and discharged mortgages are used to fund new mortgages. The NLMIC may issue more shares to raise additional capital.

The NLMIC’s net income is paid out to the shareholders by way of dividend and our income is derived from mortgage interest. The dividends received by shareholders are treated as interest income for taxation purposes. Any expenses for the NLMIC are administrative, accounting, and other related professional fees.
