AP Capital MIC


AP Capital Mortgage Investment Corporation (MIC) started in 2007 and is a mortgage lender in Western Canada. The firm advances short term mortgages to owners of primarily single detached homes in urban markets of primarily BC and Alberta.  Borrowers are homeowners or home purchasers who require short-term funds and often do not fit with conventional bank underwriting.  Equity in each borrower’s home is what protects the fund’s capital as the target loan to value is 70%; leaving 30% equity to protect AP in the event of borrower default. More than 1,000 mortgages have been advanced since the fund launched. Visit the Fast Facts for current mortgage portfolio details.  Mortgages are sourced through mortgage brokers at interest rates typically 5% above bank prime rate. As a Western Canadian alternative mortgage fund, AP Capital provides an investment option for Canadians looking for alternatives to traditional investments.

Registered funds (e.g. RRSP, TFSA, LIRA, RESP) as well as open or cash funds can be invested.

The investment objectives of AP Capital MIC are:

  1. To preserve capital by acquiring and maintaining a diversified, conservative portfolio of mortgage loan investments that generate stable returns.
  2. Provide an annual distribution/yield of 5.65% and greater; with 5.65% p.a. paid monthly.  This target has been exceeded each year since 2008.

AP Capital maintains affiliations and membership with associations that add to the quality of its business. The Company is proud to be a member of the British Columbia MIC Managers Association (BCMMA) and the Canadian Association of Accredited Mortgage Professionals (CAAMP).
