Skeptical Canadians Turn to Secure Investments This October

VANCOUVER, Oct. 9 /CNW/ - As Canadians enter October, the worst historical month for investment performance, a new study finds that investors are growing increasingly leery of the stock market. In a poll conducted by the National Post and research firm COMPAS Inc., 56 per cent of Canadians said they had lost faith in the stock market, while only 13 per cent said they believed they have "seen the worst" of the financial fallout.

Don Bergman, CEO and Founder of All Canadian Investment Corporation ("ACIC") said this sense of distrust amongst Canadians is creating a new crop of investors who are willing to research their own investment opportunities.

"I speak to investors everyday," said Bergman. "In the past year most have lost years off their retirement savings."

In months like October, Bergman sees a steady increase in disgruntled investors who turn to his company for its proven track record of paying 8 per cent annual returns to investors over the past 10 years.

ACIC is a Mortgage Investment Corporation ("MIC") based in British Columbia offering a conservative and proven investment strategy based on the nuances of each region. The company lends mortgage funds to qualified borrowers on both commercial and residential properties. This is an increasingly popular investment option for retired investors looking for regular cash income, while their principle investment is secured by real property.

Bergman credits a large part of his company's investing success to three core principles. First they maintain a low loan-to-value ratio, by requiring the borrower to be heavily invested in each property. Second: they are in a priority position to the borrower in realizing their capital and return. Finally, they maintain a short timeline. ACIC is repaid as a lender within one to two years.

While Canadian investors continue to navigate their way through a turbulent few years, many feel like turning to a crystal ball rather than a financial planner to predict the outcome of their retirement. While risk in investing may be certain, a growing number are taking comfort in ACIC's income investment option that offers stability, real estate security and proven returns.
