In 2019, Cameron Stephens celebrated its 15th anniversary - and reached $1.5 billion in assets under management! Cameron Stephens started out as a small 2-3 man office in 2004 and has since grown into a national company with offices in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. It's been quite a ride, and this year has been one of our best ones yet! We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients, partners and investors, and wish you and your families a Happy Holiday season.
Check out our recent DealTalk video about Birchwood Properties in Calgary, Alberta, and see one of the projects we helped them with.
On November 15th, the first closing of Cameron Stephens’ new investment vehicle, the Cameron Stephens High Yield Mortgage Trust (“CSMT”) occurred. CSMT offers investors the opportunity to participate in the future growth of the company.
Historically, the private capital opportunities generated by Cameron Stephens were not available to the market, but this changed in 2014 with the introduction of the Cameron Stephens Mortgage Investment Corporation (“CSMIC”).
CSMIC has a current outstanding loan balance of $41 million, its Q3 2019 dividend yield represents 8.76% on an annualized basis, and it has had no loan losses since inception.
CSMT will build on CSMIC’s success, and intends to raise $100 million of capital over the next 12 to 18 months. CSMT will focus on land, development, and construction loans, and is available to accredited investors only, as defined by applicable securities laws.
CSMT’s target net return is 7.00% to 9.00%*, and Cameron Stephens is holding monthly investor information sessions for those interested in learning more about this investment opportunity.
For more information, or to sign up for the next session, contact Katie Bonar, Assistant Vice President, at (416) 591-8787 ext. 212 or by email at email@example.com.
Another year and another successful #SantaShuffle fun run! We're excited to announce that this year we raised $37,264 for The Gateway’s Drop-in program. Our runners also took home the 2nd and 3rd place in the men’s division and we once again received the top fundraiser award! The money we raised this year makes a huge difference to The Gateway's operations, and has a significant impact on hundreds of people who access their drop-in services. Thank you to everyone who donated to our team and congrats to all our runners!
