The main difference between those who have achieved financial freedom and those who have not is their ability to take action. About the mortgage lending business. Why would anyone pay an interest rate that is higher than conventional rates when they can go to a bank for a lower rate? (1) Banks take too much time to commit to a loan. (2) The loan sought is not the type of loan typically made by a bank. Quick Loans Cost More Time is a consideration. Banks and their government regulators have created rules, policies, and ratios that make lending on real property difficult and slow. Common sense and customer service are not always pervasive in the lending industry. To developers, time is money. Missed engineering and construction deadlines can jeopardize an entire project. EFG can usually make a loan in a week or two, or even in a few days if necessary, rather than the months it often takes through a bank. This speedy process is attractive to a borrower who is willing to pay a premium through higher interest rates.

A big part of financial freedom is having your heart and mind free from worry about the what-ifs of life. ~ Suze Orman Is an EFG investment RRSP/TFSA eligible? Yes. You will need to have a self-directed plan. Can you re-invest my quarterly cash payments automatically? Yes. While we prefer our Unitholders to experience the income potential of having quarterly cash distributions, you can elect to reinvest your quarterly earnings. And, if you wish to add to your principal, you can do so at any time. Aren’t mortgages risky? Yes. There is inherent risk in any investment. We manage risk by (1) lending only to borrowers who qualify with our lending criteria, and (2) through our highly diversified portfolio of mortgages. We issue short-term loans where there are low loan-to-value ratios and where the projects have a high degree of success potential. Why has my Investment Advisor never heard of the Enzo Mortgage Investment Fund? Investment advisors usually recommend only certain types of investments approved by the large, traditional financial institutions that are generally not friendly to small businesses and developers. Increasingly, financial markets are being controlled by big Eastern finance companies not in tune with Western needs. Investment Advisors may also be influenced by sales goals and commission structures, or just not be aware of a particular option. At EFG, we focus on people who want to invest directly and we strive to avoid the high overheads associated with working through the various networks of financial advisors. We prefer the more personalized long-term relationships this lets us establish. Questions & Answers
