March is Fraud Prevention Month

Canadians concerned about cyber fraud: TD poll Third annual TD Canada Trust Fraud Prevention Month poll reveals 84 per cent of Canadians are concerned about online fraud, and many are taking action to protect themselves

W

ith the increasing popularity of smartphones, tablets and social media sites, many Canadians are concerned that they may become a victim of fraud. Fraudsters have sophisticated ways of stealing or tricking consumers into revealing personal information through these online channels.

According to the 2012 TD Canada Trust Fraud Prevention Month poll, although fewer Canadians overall are concerned about becoming a victim of fraud compared to last year (72 per cent versus 79 per cent in 2011), many are worried about emerging types of fraud such as online fraud1 (84 per cent), malicious social media apps2 (77 per cent), phishing3 (72 per cent) and fraudulent cell phone apps4 (61 per cent). “As technology continues to evolve, so too are the tricks fraudsters use to try and steal your personal information,” says Justin Hwang, Associate Vice President, Fraud Management, TD Canada Trust. “Banks and credit card companies have sophisticated security measures in place and work closely with law enforcement to protect their customers, but it is important to remember that you are the first line of defence.” The good news is Canadians are taking actions to protect themselves from these ‘online bandits,’ including: Ensuring their computer’s security software and virus/malware protection is up-to-date (86 per cent) Subscribing to the highest level of privacy on their social media accounts (73 per cent) Using an automatic lock function with a password-protection feature whenever their mobile phone, tablet, computer starts-up or times-out (54 per cent) Never texting or emailing banking information (46 per cent) Never downloading social media apps from unknown sources (45 per cent) Never sharing email or social media site passwords (45 per cent)

Hwang says an emerging type of fraud consumers should watch out for is malicious smartphone and social media apps that are designed to steal personal information, which is then used to commit fraud. “It’s encouraging to see so many Canadians are taking steps to protect themselves from fraud, but remember that fraudsters can lurk in unsuspecting places - including social media sites and even in mobile phone app stores - so it’s important you remain vigilant,” he says. “Always be cautious when downloading apps for your cell phone, tablet or computer. Try to stay with apps from well-known and trusted brands. For example, mobile banking apps from major financial institutions, like the TD Canada Trust mobile app, maintain a high level of security and integrity so are safe and secure to use.”

Canadians have ‘upped the ante’ in their fight against traditional fraud The poll revealed Canadians are more concerned about some traditional forms of fraud - including debit card fraud (87 per cent versus 81 per cent in 2011) and identity theft

inthenews (91 per cent versus 86 per cent in 2011) - but more people are taking precautions to protect themselves. Compared to last year, more Canadians now rely solely on ATMs that belong to their bank (65 per cent versus 58 per cent), have spoken to their bank about reducing their withdrawal limit (30 per cent versus 25 per cent) and change their PINs every couple of months (19 per cent versus 12 per cent). But Hwang says some Canadians are still engaging in risky behaviour that can make them vulnerable: 14 per cent admit they have carried their debit card or credit card PIN in their wallet, 11 per cent have sent their credit card number through email, and 10 per cent have told someone their PIN. “Most fraud can be avoided if you are proactive and follow a few basic tips, like shielding your PIN when making a transaction, safeguarding your personal information online and offline, and monitoring your bank account activity for anything unusual,” he says. “If you think that you may have been a victim of fraud, contact your financial institution immediately.” In support of Fraud Prevention Month, TD Canada Trust has developed a new quiz to help Canadians determine how fraud-savvy they are and learn what they can do to help protect themselves:

3RD ANNUAL TD CANADA TRUST FRAUD PREVENTION QUIZ HAS SOCIAL mEDIA AND EmAIL mADE yOU AN “OVER-SHARER?” TRUE OR FALSE: If your bank needs to contact you, they may email you and ask you for your account information.

if malicious software gets uploaded onto your device it can track what you do online, tap into your personal information and even create spam that comes under the identity of a friend. Always be cautious when downloading apps. TRUE OR FALSE: There are simple clues to figure out whether or not a website is safe. TRUE: To see if a site is secure, check the lower corner of your browser window or to the right of the address bar, for a padlock. Any time you’re on a screen to send personal information, make sure the padlock is closed or the key is intact. This indicates that security technology will scramble your personal information as it’s being transmitted. As well, the secure website address will begin with “https://”. TRUE OR FALSE: Sending an e-mail money transfer gives you the same security as online banking. TRUE: One of the biggest misconceptions about e-Transfers is that they are not secure. In reality, e-Transfers offer the same level of security and confidentiality as any online banking transaction. The e-mail notification of the transfer doesn’t include the money or any banking information, only a notification of the pending transfer. In order for the recipient to collect the money, they must log into their own online banking service and correctly answer a security question. TRUE OR FALSE: It’s not as important to be vigilant about transactions in brick and mortar stores because most fraudsters have moved online and found new ways to get personal information. FALSE: It’s ALWAYS important to protect your personal information, on or offline. Financial institutions continually upgrade the sophisticated security measures they have in place to protect customers from fraud (e.g. CHIP technology on cards), but you should also do what you can to protect yourself by knowing where your cards are at all times and shielding the keypad when you enter your PIN. For more information on fraud prevention, you can visit: http://www.td.com/privacyandsecurity/protect_yourself.jsp

About the 2012 TD Canada Trust Fraud Prevention Month Poll Results were collected through Environics’ national telephone omnibus between January 24-29, 2012. A total of 1,000 interviews were completed.

FALSE: Your bank will never contact you by email asking for account information. If you have been emailed for this information then you have likely been “phished.” Phishing refers to an online scam that seeks out personal financial information from people who believe they are sharing their information with a legitimate website or organization.

About TD Bank Group: The Toronto-Dominion Bank and its subsidiaries are collectively known as TD Bank Group (TD). TD is the sixth largest bank in North America by branches and serves approximately 20.5 million customers in four key businesses operating in a number of locations in key financial centres around the globe: Canadian Personal and Commercial Banking, including TD Canada Trust and TD Auto Finance Canada; Wealth and Insurance, including TD Waterhouse, an investment in TD Ameritrade, and TD Insurance; U.S. Personal and Commercial Banking, including TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank, and TD Auto Finance U.S.; and Wholesale Banking, including TD Securities. TD also ranks among the world’s leading online financial services firms, with more than 7.5 million online customers. TD had CDN $733 billion in assets on October 31, 2011.

TRUE OR FALSE: The anti-virus and antispyware software on your computer is sufficient to protect your personal information

1 When a fraudster gathers some of your banking information (like account details and passwords), and uses the information to perform online banking.

FALSE: Anti-virus and internet security software only helps protect your personal information if the software is up-to-date, and if it has the latest firewall installed. Fraudsters are always developing new ways to obtain your personal information online. For example,

2 Apps designed to steal your personal information, or send out malicious messages or computer viruses to your contacts without your consent. 3 A crime in which fraudulent emails and websites are used to trick consumers into providing personal information, which is then used to commit a fraud. 4 Malicious apps disguised as games or apps from credible brands designed to steal information from smart phones or send out expensive text messages without the users’ consent.

Canada’s game-changing entrepreneurs build more than mere businesses: Ernst & Young Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year 2012 Awards launched

C

anada’s entrepreneurs contribute to more

than the bottom line – they are powerful agents of change who create the products, methods, markets and solutions that drive the economy forward. Ernst & Young continues to recognize gamechanging entrepreneurs with the launch of the 19th season of its Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in Canada. The firm is calling on Canadians to nominate outstanding local entrepreneurs from across the country. The deadline for applications is April 30. “In today’s uncertain economy, innovation is about understanding evolving industry and customer needs and improving on what already exists. Our entrepreneurs know this better than anyone and demonstrate their ability to adapt to new market conditions time and time again,” says Colleen McMorrow, National and Ontario Director of Entrepreneur Of The Year.“When our entrepreneurs succeed, Canada and Canadians succeed, too. That’s why it’s critical for the broader community to celebrate and recognize their efforts.”

That said, McMorrow worries our national entrepreneurial brand may not be resonating as well as it could. Ernst & Young’s recent report, Canada in a globalized economy: an investment perspective, shows very few international executives from high-growth companies see Canada as offering a strong entrepreneurial culture beyond the startup phase. And only one-third said Canada has superior market-growth prospects. That’s a real gap that must be addressed.“Big or small, private or public, entrepreneurial companies are a key cornerstone for our economy. Our community must help entrepreneurs achieve their potential and create a brand that shines here and attracts critical investment dollars to Canada,”she adds. “From a business leader mentoring an entrepreneur or helping them network, to a college introducing an entrepreneurship program, to a government reducing red tape: every little bit counts.” The call for nominations for Ernst & Young’s awards program begins as of March 1, 2012. Self-nominations are encouraged as well, and there is no fee to nominate. An Entrepreneur Of The Year nominee must be an owner, CEO or CEO-equivalent of a private or public company with primary responsibility for its recent performance and an active member of top management. The company must be at least three years old. Award winners are chosen based on their vision, leadership, financial success and social responsibility. This year’s national program sponsors are the National Post, La Presse and RDI. For more information, FAQs and key dates – and to submit nominations online – visit ey.com/ca/EOY. About Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneurial Services Practice: Ernst & Young LLP’s Entrepreneurial Services Practice guides Canadian entrepreneurs by delivering integrated services tailored to their goals and needs at every stage of the business lifecycle. We are the world’s leader in advising, guiding and recognizing the entrepreneurs who propel the economy - and community - forward. To learn more, please visit ey.com/ca/EOY.

hat if you had $1,500 hiding in your tax return? A review of more than 300 tax returns in a small community in British Columbia found errors in one-third of the returns and missed tax refunds totalling $55,000. On the returns with found money, with the average amount was $1,500.

“Receiving your Notice of Assessment doesn’t mean you claimed everything you could,” says Cleo Hamel, a senior tax analyst at H&R Block Canada.“Our experience in Aldergrove, B.C. (as part of the TV show ‘Million Dollar Neighbourhood’) showed us that missed credits and deductions can add up to big savings. We found refunds anywhere from $100 to more than $10,000.” According to a recent survey by Leger Marketing for H&R Block, 57 per cent of Canadians polled said they would let a tax professional review their previous

returns for free. Once told about the $55,000 in tax refunds hidden in Aldergrove, the number of people who said ‘yes’ to a free review increased to 72 per cent. If you think you have missed a deduction or credit, you can have a free Second Look at H&R Block, where a tax professional will review your previous returns to ensure you claimed everything you are entitled to. If you missed something, they can help you file an adjustment to fix the error. This year, says Hamel, get every tax credit you are entitled to claim. Why not take the pain out of doing your taxes by using tax preparation software, like H&R Block At Home. The software is found at www. hrblock.ca and it will give you stepby-step tips to identify every possible deduction or credit, and will ensure you get the maximum refund. NC

Optimistic investors responding to even the smallest signs of global growth: CIBC report Asymmetrical trading sees markets reacting positively even to bad news

Hamilton

G

lobal markets are looking for signs

that conditions are improving and any sliver of good news, no matter how small, is driving gains in the market, finds a new report from CIBC World Markets Inc.

“These are not normal times,”says Benjamin Tal, deputy chief economist at CIBC.“In normal times investors overreact to bad news more than they react to good news. In today’s environment, good news has the upper hand. Investors are highly responsive to positive data surprises, while negative news is often ignored or creatively interpreted as good news.” “Greece-fatigue makes European developments secondary in affecting the mood in the market with investors growing increasingly indifferent to news from the zone – probably with the realization that any turn to the worse will be dealt with effectively by the European Central Bank.” Despite the negative surprises that dominated the news during the past three months, the Canadian market has managed to grow by nine per cent, notes Mr. Tal. He says investors seemingly ignored Canadian data and paid more attention to positive factors in the U.S. and international economies. In the U.S., the 12 per cent rally in the S&P 500 since mid-December is largely attributed to the better-than-expected economic data during that period. But, on average, the market has also reacted positively to negative data surprises.“This asymmetrical trading is due largely to the current asymmetrical Fed policy,” adds Mr. Tal. “No less than one-third of all major economic data released over the past three months outpaced expectations. And those positive

surprises were immediately translated into gains in the equity market. After all, with the Fed committed to remain in neutral until 2014, the market can enjoy the full benefit of stronger-than-expected macro data without worrying about the usual spoiler of increased policy-tightening expectations. “More interesting, however, is the average 0.13 per cent daily market gain in the S&P 500 in reaction to the 20 per cent of releases that have fallen short of expectations. The logic here is that any sign of economic weakness increases the likelihood of a third round of quantitative easing, with clear positive implications for the market.” Mr. Tal expects Canadian investors will continue to focus on U.S. economic data and largely ignore further negative news from Canada’s manufacturing sector where the drag of the strong dollar is still clearly evident. In a section of the report authored by Avery Shenfeld, Chief Economist at CIBC, and Warren Lovely, Senior Economist at the bank, the struggles of a sector seriously impaired by a strong Canadian dollar are highlighted. Manufacturing’s share of Canada’s GDP has plummeted since the Canadian dollar turned the corner, but it has also lost ground on a relative basis versus the U.S., where the factory sector’s footprint has held steady. Manufacturing now contributes just over 12 per cent of Canada’s Real GDP compared to nearly 19 per cent at the turn of the millennium. While, factory output in Canada has seen a revival from the depths of the 2008 recession, much of that has been delivered from a one-time recovery from cyclically depressed demand. Mr. Tal expects that as economic, fiscal and political power consolidates in western Canada, regional income inequity will soar. While Canada’s monetary authorities can avoid accelerating that process by keeping rates on hold for longer, it won’t prevent a further hollowing out of Canada’s manufacturing heartland. “The likelihood is that investors will have plenty to ignore in the coming months,” he adds.“How long this win-win trading environment will last is anybody’s guess, but the likelihood is that this process has not been exhausted yet.” “The euphoric trading could continue until the market wakes up to the realization that whatever it gets now will be taken away by the big fiscal drag of 2013.” The complete CIBC World Markets report is available at: http://research.cibcwm.com/economic_public/download/eifeb12.pdf.

InveSTIng In Real eSTaTe 10 tips for reducing risk and making money By Dino Nicosia, Broker of Record, Investpro Realty and Appraisal Ltd. Brokerage

Investing in real estate and being a landlord should be treated like any other business venture. The goal is to end up with a profit at the end of the day after collecting the rent and paying the expenses. Slowly and steadily your mortgage will be paid down and you’ll end up with a tidy nest egg. Remember though, like any venture it takes effort, time and know-how. It is not a get rich quick scheme. The Warren Buffet strategy works best. Plan to hold the investment for the long term, subject to market and personal variables that may necessitate a quicker sale. It can and should be financially rewarding if you do your homework, take the proper precautions, employ experts in the areas of your weaknesses, and minimize your risks. Hamilton

TIPS: 1. ReSeaRCH: Take the necessary time to inform yourself about property values in the locations you’re considering purchasing. Consider obtaining a market analysis from a real estate agent or appraiser for a property in which you are interested. Consider if the location is in decline or moving upwards? A good indication is if large chains like Wal-Mart, Tim Hortons, Home Depot or Star Bucks are moving into the neighbourhood. Companies like these do a lot of market research on demographics and income before deciding where to locate. If a large chain like one of these finds a neighbourhood appealing, it’s a good indication the neighbourhood is moving upwards. 2. SURROUnD YOURSelF WITH eXPeRIenCe: This is very important! Retain a real estate agent who has firsthand experience; who is also a local investor; and who has owned and managed investment properties. Many agents purport to be experts in investment properties, but have never owned or managed one. Retaining a real estate agent with firsthand experience is invaluable. Additionally, utilize the services of other experienced professionals, such as property managers, insurance advisers, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, accountants and lawyers. If your real estate agent doesn’t possess the required expertise to know what should be contained in an agreement of purchase and sale, then retain a real estate lawyer who is an expert in that area to prepare the offer. A knowledgeable professional team working with you will make the process smoother and save you time and likely money in the long run. 3. PROPeRTY ManageMenT: A critical member of your professional team is an experienced and reliable property manager. If you don’t want to deal with or are not experienced in dealing with tenant concerns, evictions, and other property issues 24/7, you will want a property manager. Depending mainly on the number of units being managed, (although there are many other factors), the management fee will range from between 4 and 10 percent of the monthly or yearly rental income. Good property management will likely pay for itself in the long run. When looking for a property management company, be sure you ask for references and follow up those references. Another good idea before retaining any person is to simply do a Google search on them and see what pops up. 4. Be aWaRe OF Illegal UnITS: Some units in some apartment buildings, (usually a basement apartment), duplexes and triplexes, and students housing units, are illegal in that they contravene the zoning by-law. Although these units provide additional income, be aware that they may not be fire code compliant, you may be forced to convert them back to the legal use of lesser units, you may not be able to have the zoning by-law changed to permit the extra units, and your lender will probably not include the income from those units in determining the principal amount you will qualify for under your mortgage. 5. BUY WITH THe gOal TO HOlD lOng TeRM: If you’re

looking for a quick flip and a quick profit, you might as well put your money on the roulette wheel. It’s better to be the tortoise than the hare. If you’re holding for the long term, you should be able to ride out the ups and downs of the economy and the rental market. Historically, real estate has always increased over the long term. The probability of you making money is greater in the long term than the chance of you making short term gains. 6. PaRTneRSHIP agReeMenT: If you’re investing with other persons, it’s recommended that you have an agreement in place, (i.e. partnership agreement, joint venture agreement, shareholders’ agreement) to address various matters. Those matters could include failure to put in cash calls for losses, selling your interest or the property, management, death or incapacity, decision making, and a myriad of others. With an agreement in place, you a mechanism already in place to deal with many issues rather than having to deal with them later when the parties may be antagonistically opposed. It’s better to pay for the agreement now than pay much more later. 7. Be CaUTIOUS: While there are some investments that require minimal dollar investment, most real estate transactions require a significant down payment and financing that is personally guaranteed. Don’t fall prey to the “no money down” schemes. Those schemes may work south of the border, but they are not amenable in any significant way to the Canadian system. The people making the most money on the “no money down schemes” are the ones putting on the seminars. Chances are you will be paying a premium for the property because there is no money down; the property is a money drain and that’s why the seller is willing to sell with no money down so the losses can be passed onto you. Get a second opinion from a professional. Never be hurried by a real estate agent or a seller to act quickly to get in on the deal as there are many other, probably better, deals out there. 8. PROPeRTY InSPeCTIOn: A thorough property inspection by a qualified inspector is a necessity. Your satisfaction with the results should be a condition of any offer. 9. eDUCaTe YOURSelF: Educate and familiarize yourself with investment strategies, the terminology, the tax laws, and regulations that govern investment properties such as fire, health and safety, landlord and tenant laws. Take your time and only proceed when you are ready. You may find that you have to view many properties and submit many offers before you find the investment property that is the right fit for you. Know the business before you make the plunge. 10. DOn’T Be In a HURRY TO Sell: A common mistake made by inexperienced real estate investors is that they sell their investment too early. A quick tidy profit, if available, should be weighed against the larger future profit. Remember that by keeping your investment, you don’t trigger any capital gains and let’s not forget the costs to sell, such as commission, legal fees etc. Also consider the possible penalties if you sell before your mortgage or other contracts mature. 8171452_0912

Canada’s small public companies struggled to secure financing in 2011, financial executives say Performance improvement the first step to credit availability for small companies

D Greater Toronto Area

espite Canada’s relatively stable economic landscape, small public companies here are still struggling to obtain access to credit – a critical cornerstone in their ability to succeed, according to a study by the Canadian Financial Executives Research Foundation (CFERF) and sponsored by Ernst & Young. Credit availability barometer: 2011 , published by the research arm of Financial Executives International (FEI) Canada, shows that credit continues to be much easier to obtain for companies already flush with cash. That could make this a challenging year ahead for smaller public companies hoping to grow.

“Building a strategic plan that incorporates new sources of funding and is dedicated to improving company performance is crucial for smaller companies looking to capitalize on growth opportunities in this tough environment,”says Brian Allard, Partner at Ernst & Young. Cost-cutting and identifying operational efficiencies, as well as cash flow and liquidity, are already focus areas for 76 per cent of companies this year. With investors’ decisions often weighing on profitability, revenue, cash flow and credit history, companies across the country were also unanimous that those with access to credit should seize the opportunity and line up as much financing as possible before market turmoil beyond our borders drives Canadian lenders to scale back their financing activities. About the Canadian Financial Executives Research Foundation: CFERF is the non-profit research institute of FEI Canada. The foundation’s mandate is to advance the profession and practices of financial management through research. CFERF undertakes objective research projects relevant to the needs of Canada’s senior financial executives in working toward the advancement of corporate efficiency in Canada.

“Access to financing is the key to smaller businesses’ ability to foster innovation, attract the best and brightest talent, create jobs and – in some cases – to even survive,”says Michael Conway, Chief Executive and National President of FEI Canada.“Companies caught in the wake of today’s tightened credit market must look further afield for financing opportunities that enable them to grow their company and push our economy forward.”

About Financial Executives International Canada: FEI Canada is the allindustry professional membership association for senior financial executives. With 11 chapters across Canada and more than 2,000 members, it provides professional development, thought leadership and advocacy services to its members. The association membership, which consists of chief financial officers, audit committee directors and senior executives in the finance, controller, treasury and taxation functions, represents a significant number of Canada’s leading and most influential corporations. For more information, please visit feicanada.org.

The report found a majority of these businesses are turning to organic growth – including growing their customer base and increasing their sales – rather than focusing on mergers and acquisitions as a source of growth.

About Ernst & Young: Ernst & Young is a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services. Worldwide, our 152,000 people are united by our shared values and an unwavering commitment to quality. We make a difference by helping our people, our clients and our wider communities achieve their potential.

No matter whether you are thinking of selling your business, or planning your retirement, or planning for the future, you need a sound business succession plan. Succession planning involves establishing your exit strategy and deciding how to hand your business over to someone else. Having a plan can smooth the transition, protect your work’s legacy, build value for your business, and help ensure financial security for your family and other interested individuals. When planning your exit strategy, it’s best to start early. According to the 2011 TD Waterhouse Business Succession Poll, 76 per cent of small business owners don’t have such plan. Taking the time to plan can save you countless hours down the road, so to get you started, here are few things to consider when drafting your plan: • Determine your goals and objectives for the business. • Identify and train your successor.

• Think about how your decisions will impact family members, partners and/or employees. • Prepare a financial plan and determine the tax implications for the transition of your business.

Greater Toronto Area

t a lan h p W n io s s e succ

• Determine the fair market value of your business. • Create an exit strategy by establishing a timeline for easing your way out of the business. • Review the plan regularly to keep it up to date. When developing your plan, it’s a good idea to consult advisors such as accountants, bankers and lawyers. Making sure that your successors understand their roles in the business, now and for the future, is also essential. There are several ways to find information that can help you plan for a smooth transition. Start by reading the succession plan guide online at www.canadabusiness.ca/ontario. Canada Business Ontario is a free service from the governments of Canada and Ontario that provides information on a variety of business topics. You can also contact them by phone through the Business Info Line at 1-888-745-8888.

• Decide if you would like to transfer or sell your business to a successor.

Do Canadians trust their investment advisors? The Investor Behaviour and Beliefs: Advisor Relationships and Investor Decision-Making Study highlights investors’ knowledge and expectations regarding their advisor relationships

A

dvisors are the key influence on investors’ decisionmaking, according to a new study released recently by Investor Education Fund (IEF) (www. GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca), a leading authority on financial literacy and education.

Niagara Peninsula

Investor Behaviour and Beliefs: Advisor Relationships and Investor Decision-Making provides insight into the learning needs of Canadian investors who have an advisory relationship, including factors that influence investment decisions, how people work with advisors to make decisions and investor expectations of their advisors. The study found that Canadian investors most commonly look to their advisors for advice on asset mix, planning and specific types of investments to buy. It found that investors’ trust in their advisors’ opinions dominates all other factors in the decision to buy investments. In addition, the study revealed that investor knowledge of fees and what affects them is weak, and investors are

unaware of potential conflicts of interest. Most investors are not aware of what products their advisors are licensed or registered to sell. “Investors need to do more to understand how their advisor impacts their investment choices and, ultimately, their returns,” says Tom Hamza, President of IEF.“This study emphasizes the need for Canadian investors to get clarity about the nature of their advisory relationships and to closely match their needs with the skills and capabilities of their advisor.” The online IEF study of 2,000 Canadian investors divided the issues into two distinct surveys - Advisor Relationships and Investor Decision-Making - and each survey had approximately 2,000 online respondents. A copy of Investor Behaviour and Beliefs: Advisor Relationships and Investor Decision-Making is available online at www.GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca.

Commercial Real Estate & Business Opportunities

Mortgages

PRIVATE LENDING IS NOT JUST FOR RICH PEOPLE... IT WILL MAKE YOU RICH! For many years, we have been assisting people to make their money really work for them in mortgage lending. Most of the big, RICH, private lenders out there started out as just average people, that took the leap into mortgage lending regardless of what friends and family thoughts were. Many are stricken with fear of losing their money when contemplating this investment vehicle. Before dismissing this investment direction, consider the following points. Private lending can be very financially rewarding. Private lending is certainly not like putting funds into a guaranteed account with a guaranteed rate and a modest return. Yes, there is a bit more involved. The mortgage brokerage you work with is key. The typical brokerage will have a range of mortgage offerings that will include offerings that cater to individuals that are in a dire position. They may be losing their property and/or their mortgage is in arrears, their credit is challenged and they need to consolidate. The banks will not lend under such circumstances as the risk is too high. These are the type of deals I would not lend on, but are the basis of the high yielding returns. Lending criteria has changed so drastically in the past few years. Banks have really tightened up their lending rules, specifically when it comes to income properties. This is when a private lender can come into play and really leverage on this opportunity to make anywhere from 8-20% annual return. These clients generally have clean credit, good income and other assets. This would make for a safer investment. Lending your Self Directed RRSPs: You can utilize your RRSPs in this type of investment. Most folks are seeing very slim returns in their plans, unless you are in the industry of watching markets, you typically will not experience anything positive. The Self Directed route is really not too difficult in terms of process. The broker should handle the entre process from providing you the lender with the complete details of the investment so you can make an informed decision. – Check List: Credit bureau, credit application, appraisal or an evaluation, income and a scenario of why these borrowers are seeking funds. Note: Not all RRSP plan holders will allow for you to self direct your funds into mortgages. Please confirm with your plan holder as to their protocol on mortgage lending. I am aware of plans that do so and have worked with them for several years, some are much less work and make it easier and less costly for you the lender. You can also make equity in your home really work for you as the current rates are insanely low, borrow at a variable rate of 2.102.50% and lend at 9-20%, great profit. This is a great venue for people that are sitting on equity. For example, for a senior that has reduced income, this can bring you additional funds monthly and give you the peace of mind you are looking for. Scenario – Borrow a mortgage for 100K your monthly payment @ 2.25% interest and a 25 year amortization would be $436. Lend 100k at 14% interest at an interest only monthly payment of $1,167. Your profit is a super $731 per month. In addition, you are paying down your mortgage with this borrower’s interest payments. As a bonus, you are also paying down principal of $3,018 in the first year (this will increase over time). So, you can service your debt, pay-down your principal loan and earn extra income to build a retirement nest egg. Not bad. At the end of the typical one year term the funds come back and you can re-invest again. Ok, so that is the positive side of this investment vehicle. What about the risks? What if a borrower does not pay their mortgage? The private lender is typically in second position. It is imperative for you to confirm that the first mortgage is up to date so you can control the sale process. Don’t let this scare you. If you have a good loan to value on the property you will be in a good position to charge back costs plus any associated fees to the sale. The key in managing your risk is to do your proper due diligence on the property and get a realistic valuation from a reputable Appraiser or valuator. There is a lot of detail in this, but with proper counsel, the returns are worth this potential risk. Being a private lender has made people very wealthy. Do not let fear cripple your vision of having a great return. Contact carmen@profunds.ca for complete details and start to make your funds work for you – build your wealth. A member of

What is rent and why is that important? By Jayson Schwarz

F

or a landlord an extremely important aspect of any commercial lease is rent, but it is not even defined under the Commercial Tenancies Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.L.7. This is surprising because rent is the essence of the contract between the landlord and the tenant and in the event of non payment or default of some kind, how rent is defined will determine what remedies are available to the landlord. Most leases and the Act provide for accelerated rent in the event of default in the payment of rent. A default in rent payment will open the door to distress or forfeiture. All of these issues can be addressed in your lease, Rent can be defined by the lease as being much more than just the amount paid every month for using the premises. Commercial realties are such that a landlord needs every tool available to protect oneself. To do this, a landlord should enlist the services of an experienced commercial lawyer familiar with these kinds of issues. Why do we care how rent is defined? By creating a broad definition of rent the landlord is better protected in the event of non payment of monies due under a lease. It

14G COM

is much easier for the landlord to trigger remedies under the Commercial Tenancies Act or under the lease where the money is technically defined as rent rather than as maintenance or some other form of payment. This is an exercise in proper drafting, something your lawyer needs to do. Rent is usually defined to include two types of rent: the base rent that represents the net payment for the use of the premises and additional rent. Additional rent will include any other payment the landlord collects from the tenant, including: realty taxes, maintenance costs of the common areas, insurance on the property, management fees and anything else that can be included. The key here is to explore with your lawyer all possible payments that a tenant could or would ever make to the landlord and to define it as additional rent. There is never any doubt that base rent is rent for purposes of the Act but the definition of additional rent and what is included is a critical issue for purposes of protection from bad tenants. In order to protect oneself, a commercial landlord must use the lease to define different items as rent and define the means of enforcement. The courts have held that where a landlord wants to enforce an amount defined under the lease as rent (such as maintenance fees), he must provide a detailed accounting and the fees must be reasonable. Therefore at the time the lease is drafted, it is incumbent on a landlord to ensure that the definition of rent is broadly stated to include all monies that will be due to the landlord – contemporaneously, the landlord must ensure that the remedies to collect, when those monies are not paid, are also in the lease. What happens however if the landlord used an off-the-shelf lease that did not include those things? The Commercial Tenancies Act states that the landlord has the right to re-enter the premises and re-take possession after 15 days without notice to the tenant. A lot can happen in 15 days, but with the right clause in a lease, you could act immediately. What if the default was payment of the landlord’s insurance and this was not defined as rent in the lease? You might not even be able to take distress or forfeiture action. You need a proper lease! It would appear that there is more to the meaning of rent than meets the eye. Drafting a lease for commercial purposes is difficult and complex, but when properly done it is a great tool to protect your commercial investment. Perhaps the most difficult part of writing these articles relates not to the actual writing, but thinking of a topic to address. Please mail, deliver or fax letters to the magazine or to us, use the website (schwarzlaw.ca), email (schwarz@schwarzlaw.ca), or phone us at 1-888-609-8888 and give us your questions, concerns, critiques and quandaries.

Canadians losing confidence in economy: RBC Canadian Consumer Outlook Fewer Canadians carrying personal debt, but feel they’re “standing still” financially

C

anadians have lost confidence that the national economy or their personal financial situation will improve any time soon, according to the RBC Canadian Consumer Outlook Index (RBC CCO), released recently. Just under one-third (32 per cent) of Canadians indicate they feel positive about the outlook for the domestic economy over the next year, down from 43 per cent in January 2011 and nearly half the number who said so in January 2010 (56 per cent). Only 36 per cent say they believe their own personal financial situation will improve, compared to 38 per cent in 2011 and 45 per cent in 2010.

The RBC CCO also reports that, while Canadians, on average, have reduced their personal (non-mortgage) debt, more than half (57 per cent) don’t have any savings set aside for an emergency/rainy day, unchanged since the last quarter. Personal debt is now down to $11,729 compared to $13,020 last quarter. In addition, when it comes to their personal finances, 46 per cent feel they are “standing still” rather than getting ahead, compared to last year. Consumers are taking action about the state of their personal finances. Over the next year, almost one-third (31 per cent) intend to focus on reducing debt and spending less, 22 per cent plan to save or invest more, and 23 per cent intend to take all of these actions. “We’re encouraged to see that Canadians are trying to find ways to manage their finances, which is particularly crucial given the current economic environment,” said Dave McKay, 20G COM

group head, Canadian Banking, RBC.“Reducing debt is a very good goal, but having money set aside for something unforeseen is also important. Sitting down with a financial planner to ensure you balance day-to-day-costs with growing your savings and planning for the unexpected should be part of your complete financial plan.” Job concerns have risen slightly across the country since last year (21 per cent compared to 20 per cent) and almost one-third of Canadians (30 per cent) say they would move to another part of the country or a different city/region, in order to keep their present job or advance, or to change careers/find new work. Fully half (50 per cent) of Canadians believe the province of Alberta is creating the most jobs in Canada right now, followed by Ontario (22 per cent), Saskatchewan (nine per cent), B.C. (seven per cent) and Quebec (six per cent). “We’re becoming more concerned about employment prospects in Canada,” explained Craig Wright, senior vice-president and chief economist, RBC.“The past two years have started out with strong employment numbers and then finished on a weak note. Unfortunately, we’ve now seen 2011’s year-end weakness spill over into the beginning of this year. This, combined with the current unsettled environment due to ongoing concerns about the U.S. and European economies, leaves us cautious about the outlook for 2012.” The RBC CCO is Canada’s most comprehensive consumer assessment of the economy, personal financial situation and economic and purchasing expectations. Other national highlights from the February 2012 RBC CCO include: Major Purchases: More than half (53 per cent) of Canadian families have changed the timing of major purchases – such as a car, household appliances or vacation spending – due to current economic conditions. Almost half (47 per cent) expect that their family will spend less on such purchases in the upcoming year. Job Skills: Almost two-in-ten Canadians (18 per cent) say that they are working in a job or field that does not fit their skills/training/education; 22 per cent report that someone in their household is going to be upgrading their skills due to a change in their employment situation. The national RBC CCO release, full set of regional releases and related comparative data charts can be accessed via rbc.com/newsroom/2012/0209cdn-consumer.html. About the RBC Canadian Consumer Outlook Index (RBC CCO) Benchmarked as of November 2009, the RBC CCO is conducted online via Ipsos Reid’s national I-Say Consumer Panel. Data collection was January 9 to 16, 2012, via 4,479 Canadians (490 British Columbia, 498 Alberta, 538 Saskatchewan/Manitoba, 1,395 Ontario, 921 Quebec, 635 Atlantic Canada). Weighting was then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample’s composition reflects that of the adult population according to Census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of this size and a 100 per cent response rate would have an estimated margin of error of ±1.65 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what the results would have been had the entire population of adults in Canada been polled.
