The private mortgage market earns greater returns for investors than savings accounts and GICs without exposing investors to the volatility of stocks and mutual funds. Generally, MICs tend to be more stable than equities and more secure than corporate bonds.
A diverse portfolio has a mix of different kinds of assets that help increase returns and protect capital from undue risk. That’s why you’ll often hear people say “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. A well-diversified portfolio includes exposure to real estate, which 460 MIC provides through mortgage lending. Furthermore, 460 MIC is itself diversified, made up of a broad group of mortgages in a variety of different projects, regions and sectors.
Every year 460 MIC pays you out in cash, directly to your bank account. This annual payout is mandated by the tax rules that govern all MICs. Use this money any way you choose—spend it, save it or continue to grow it by reinvesting in 460 MIC.
460 MIC is eligible for most registered plans including RRSPs, TFSAs, RRIFs, RESPs and LIRAs. RRSPs allow you to defer paying tax on your 460 MIC dividends until you withdraw the money from your plan or transfer it to your RRIF. With TFSAs, the money you earn from 460 MIC is immediately available for tax-free withdrawal. In both cases, you can choose to reinvest your dividends and continue to shelter them from the taxman—a great way to maximize growth.
