Top 5 Reasons To Invest In The Canadian Exempt Market

March 10, 2014

Over the last decade, there has been a great deal of volatility in the public markets and annual returns over that period have been dismal. This has led to an increasing interest in alternative or private investments across the investment world, as more investors look outside the box of traditional stocks and bonds. Alternative or private investments can be found in the Exempt Market and here are my top 5 reasons to consider investing your hard earned money there:

  • The Exempt Market offers investors a wide variety of investments that are not publicly traded on stock exchanges. This means they are not subject to the emotional volatility of the stock markets and can provide more predictable returns.
  • Exempt Market Products can provide higher returns and greater diversification when compared with other, conventional investment products.
  • Exempt Market products can provide investors with cash flow producing investments such as fixed income bonds & mortgage investment corporations.
  • Investment Advisers must now be registered in Canada, housed under an Exempt Market Dealer and have the proper training to advise you on Exempt Market products.  Investors can be assured that they are dealing with a competent professional to give them guidance as they explore this market and all it has to offer.   
  • With new federal regulations in place, Exempt Market companies must now have their project housed under an Exempt Market Dealer before they can raise capital from investors. EMD's either use their own Chief Compliance Officer or hire out to a 3rd party analyst to review potential projects with a rigorous due diligence process. Each dealer has their own package of strict criteria that must be met and only when the project is accepted can funds be raised for it from investors. This removes the bias factor as most private issuers no longer raise their own capital.   

Today's Exempt Market is a great place to invest.  With new rules and regulations in place and top tier companies available to investors, there's never been a better time to take part in this dynamic marketplace.  Have a look through our current offerings on our website and see if there is something that interests you.
