Canada Penfund Mortgage Corporation originates and manages commercial mortgages on behalf of investors. Mortgage servicing may be performed by Canada Penfund or its Service Partner, a nationally-based, accredited institution. This determination may be made by the investor.
Pendfund Income Fund Inc. (PIFI) is licensed to qualify parties for syndicated investment into commercial mortgage loans. Syndication of mortgage loans involving investment by Accredited Investors and others requires licensing of a firm regulated by members of the Canadian Securities Agency, or provincial Securities Commissions. Institutional and private investors buy a position in an income-bearing vehicle void of fluctuation or volatility. Mortgages bear a sound risk-adjusted rate of return and are founded on a policy of capital preservation. Investors get consistent, predictable returns with steady reporting.
PIFI and Canada Penfund deal mainly first mortgage security on real property in urban centres in Canada. Canada Penfund operates on overheads less than large financial institutions which allows increased yield to be passed directly to investors.
Pendfund loans are secured mainly by mature, revenue-producing commercial property and are underwritten with the same basic criteria as large financial institutions use. This class of loan is considered the lowest risk in any form of commercial debt investment product thus it bears among the lowest in losses and ranks highest in safety rating.
Pendfund Income Fund I fills a void in the investment landscape with a secured source of annuity-type income which yields superior returns to the GIC.
Distributions received by Investors are treated as interest income and taxed accordingly; the Trust pays no tax.
