Private Market Investing
Private market investing, or exempt market investing, offers investors an opportunity to diversify their investments into assets not offered in traditional institutions. Private investments can include asset-backed securities, debt offerings and equity in private companies that are tangible asset backed, such as Real Estate, or Land.
Many Canadian pension and Family office plans diversify into non-market correlated assets by investing in private opportunities. These funds are well on their way to achieving the required rate of return for their beneficiaries. Dealers offer investment products that allow the average investor the same asset classes as these pension plans, essentially allowing investors to invest along side the pro’s.
Mike Lynes is a licensed registered Dealing Representative of Raintree Financial Solutions in an Exempt Market Dealership that offers investment opportunities in private companies in Real Estate, Private Equities, and many other asset classes. Many of these investments offered through Raintree Financial Solutions are also eligible for RRSPs, TFSAs and other Registered fund types. As a Dealing Representative with Raintree Financial Solutions, Mike Lynes is dedicated to helping investors build their wealth responsibly through a variety of alternative investment opportunities.
