TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RiverRock Mortgage Investment Corp. (“RiverRock”), a mortgage investment corporation (MIC) that provides access to investments in high-yield Canadian residential mortgages, announced today an increase of 0.25% to the target yield paid to its investors, effective January 1, 2024.

RiverRock’s portfolio holds owner occupied residential mortgages in Southern Ontario with a maximum duration of 12 months and has paid investors a consistent monthly dividend yield since 2014. The target yield for each share class beginning January 1, 2024 will be:

  • Class N – 7.50% increasing to 7.75% (including DRIP 8.03%)

“Amidst the upward trajectory of Bank of Canada rates in the past 18 months, our attention has been on the rates extended to our borrowers,” remarked Nick Kyprianou, President & CEO of RiverRock. “Anticipating a correction in the residential real estate market, we proactively adjusted our lending criteria at the close of 2021. This foresight has proven crucial in weathering the softening of real estate values. Consequently, we not only navigated through this market shift but also continued to enhance yields for our investors.”

The RiverRock team is led by Nick Kyprianou, who has over 35 years of experience in Canadian non-traditional lending. As of October 31, 2023, the portfolio characteristics are as follows:

  • Average loan to value – 67.71%
  • Average mortgage amount – $436,342
  • 100% highly marketable residential homes, 87% owner occupied
