Redbricks MIC is an RRSP/TFSA eligible private mortgage investment fund managed by Gryphon.

Please review our Offering Memorandum for a complete source of Redbricks MIC information.
Redbricks MIC is a private Mortgage Investment Corporation (MIC) originally conceived to provide employees, trades, suppliers, and consultants the opportunity to invest in the projects that they work on everyday. Over the past 8 years, and with the help of friends and family, Redbricks has grown to over $30 million. Redbricks is RRSP and TFSA eligible, but can also be held personally or in a corporate account.
Invested capital is pooled and used to make loans to MOSAIC real estate development projects across Metro Vancouver. Redbricks typically holds a portfolio of 6-9 mortgage loans that vary in seniority, type of development (townhome or condominium), and stage of development (land acquisition or construction). Each of these loans earns interest and fees for Redbricks investors. Loans are underwritten up to 83% LTV, so a project can lose up to 17% of its value before principal or interest is at risk.
The key determinant of investment return is the allocation within Redbricks’ portfolio to cash, senior mortgages (1st), and mezzanine (2nd and 3rd) mortgages. Historically, Redbricks has been predominantly mezzanine mortgages, but in 2017 is beginning to transition toward a more balanced mix of senior and mezzanine mortgages.
