Sightline Conversations: RiverRock Shares Insights on the Mortgage Investment Landscape


Please speak to your Sightline Advisor before investing in any securities to ensure the fund is suitable for you. It is important to review the fund offering documents before investing.  There are risks associated with investing and there is no assurance that any Fund will achieve its investment objective, and its net asset value, yield and investment return will fluctuate from time to time with market conditions. There is no guarantee that the full amount of your original investment in a Fund will be returned to you. The Funds are not insured by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government deposit insurer.

For this Sightline manager conversation, Sightline Wealth Management’s Warren Gerow speaks with Nick Kyprianou, president, CEO and director at RiverRock Mortgage Investment Corporation, a high-yield alternative fixed income investment within the real estate market. During the conversation, Kyprianou joins Gerow and offer insights on how the high-yield Canadian residential mortgage market can thrive in our current economic environment.

Specifically, Gerow and Kyprianou discuss:

  • The corporation’s average size, type and number of loans
  • The demographics / categories of typical borrowers
  • The process for loan origination
  • How the mortgage market weathered the height of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The current strength of the mortgage market
  • How higher interest rates typically impact the mortgage market
  • Specific trends to pay attention to when investing in mortgage lending
