How we invest your money
HarbourEdge issues short-term financing loans secured by a mortgage on real property to finance select real estate development and construction projects. Among others, these include:
• Construction bridge financing
• Construction mortgages
• Private mortgages
• Construction loans
• Subdivision financing
The members of our Management Team come from construction and development, institutional finance and accounting backgrounds, so we understand our niche very well. At any given time we have upwards of 50 loans in our mortgage portfolio from an investment fund of approximately $190 million.
Our key business objective is Preservation of Capital through careful risk management. There are many factors involved in managing risk, beginning with astute investment choices. Among the numerous financial management techniques we employ in underwriting mortgages, the following are key tools that we use to limit risk:
• Loan-To-Value ratio (LTV) Historically the average amount of loans made to borrowers have represented no more than 65% of the appraised value of the assets held under security at the time of advance. This means that investors benefit from a higher level of borrower equity in the assets we underwrite. A low LTV is a key underwriting tool.
• Concentration Risk We continually monitor concentration risk to ensure that no one loan exceeds 15% of the total portfolio. Having our eggs in many baskets helps manage risk.
• Liquidity The HarbourEdge mortgage portfolio is comprised of mortgages with a short average term to maturity. This increases the liquidity of the mortgage pool and reduces exposure to increases in interest rates.
• Due Diligence For every new mortgage, HarbourEdge personnel carry out an on-site inspection before finalizing our commitment. We inspect again prior to every subsequent advance on construction funds, ensuring the scope of work is consistent with funding requests.
