bcIMC finances Canadian income producing commercial and multi-family residential properties through our Fixed-Term
Mortgage Fund. The risk factors that are used to evaluate mortgage investments include: location; improvement(s)
quality; tenant financial strength; green building features; borrower and covenantor's financial strength; loan-to-value
level; debt servicing ability; and borrower experience. Mortgage agreements may include additional security provisions
such as personal guarantees, corporate guarantees, letters of credit, and the pledging of additional collateral.
- First, second or third mortgages
- First mortgage bonds

Interest rates for these mortgages are determined by adding credit and liquidity spreads over the current yields
of Government of Canada bonds with similar terms to maturities. bcIMC's portfolio managers utilize a multi-factor
risk rating model to assess credit risk levels on individual investment opportunities. The risk factors that are
evaluated include: location; improvement(s) quality; tenant financial strength; borrower and covenantor's financial
strength; loan-to-value level; debt servicing ability; borrower's experience.
Maximun 75 per cent loan-to-value
Mortgage agreements may also include additional security provisions such as: personal guarantees;
corporate guarantees; letters of credit; pledging of additional collateral.

The Fixed-Term Fund requires three years of operating history as well as an acceptable level of leasing in
