Benefits of Investing in Private Mortgages through a Brokerage

Consistent Returns:

Alternative Asset Class:

Help smooth out the ups and downs of your portfolio with an alternative to public market stocks, bonds, and direct real estate (ownership/management/investment)


Secured Debt:

In the unlikely event a borrower fails to repay a loan, we can take control of the property and sell it to satisfy the debt.

Frequently Asked Questions

At HALO, we specialize in private mortgages focused on income-producing commercial properties and development projects, providing our investors with opportunities to earn returns from real estate without needing to manage the properties themselves.

HALO exclusively works with investors who are members of the Designated Class of Lenders and Investors as defined by the Mortgage Brokerages, Lenders and Administrators Act (MBLAA) in Ontario. This classification ensures that all our investors have the requisite experience or financial stability to engage in private mortgage investing.

Investing in private mortgages with HALO offers the potential for higher yields compared to traditional fixed-income investments, backed by the security of real estate. It's an excellent way to diversify your investment portfolio while benefiting from the steady income stream of interest payments.

To begin investing, you must first confirm your status as a member of the Designated Class under the MBLAA.
