PORTFOLIO COMPOSITION AND DIVERSIFICATION
AWC underwrites residential mortgages in urban centres across Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario, where typically housing and mortgage demand is high. The AWC portfolio mainly consists of owner-occupied residential properties that are comprised of first and second mortgages, with minimal exposure to commercial mortgages and no land developments as AWC understands that there can be a significant risk difference between residential, multi-family residential, commercial, and land development projects. AWC portfolio consists primarily of mortgages with a one-year term.
AWC pays for the MIC’s operations costs out of its management fee. AWC is paid a management fee of 2% per annum on the outstanding share capital of the MIC for portfolio management. There are no management fees paid on the leveraged portion of the portfolio. The Manager pays all its own costs, expenses and overhead relating to its services.
AWC offers weekly purchases and, redemptions are offered monthly subject to the availability of funds.
Dividends are distributed on a monthly basis. Dividends can be either paid out or reinvested in additional shares, depending on the investor’s needs.
To help safeguard against credit risk, AWC maintains a maximum loan-to-value of 75% (First Place MIC) and 90% (AWC Diversified MIC). The goal is to maintain a weighted portfolio with a loan to value-of 75% or less. An independent valuation is obtained on each mortgaged property.
Monthly and annual statements, along with audited financial statements are readily accessible on AWC’s investor portal.
