Guelph, ON – April 10, 2018

The Skyline Group of Companies (Skyline), a unique investment management organization, is proud to announce the launch of the Skyline Mortgage Investment Trust (SMIT). Designed to complement Skyline’s existing investment products, SMIT addresses the fixed income needs of an investor’s portfolio.

“Commercial real estate continues to be in high demand, and real estate prices are expected to remain strong in Canada’s major markets,” stated Wayne Byrd, CFO Skyline Group of Companies. “In an economy that is projecting rising interest rates, SMIT may offer a good hedge against those potentially higher rates.”

Based on their proven track record, with over 20 years of high-quality mortgage investments, Skyline chose to partner with First National Financial LP (First National) as the exclusive mortgage broker for SMIT. Together, Skyline and First National will  primarily focus SMIT on short-term mortgages for revenue-producing multi-residential, office, retail and industrial properties.
