About

Ki’mola Indigenous Capital, Canada’s only First Nation owned Private Equity investment provider has created a new Indigenous Investment solution for First Nation investors.

First Nations can now invest alongside Canadian investment leaders in projects that provide excellent financial returns, developed by an experienced team with a proven track record, having developed over 700 projects globally.

For First Nation investors seeking to diversify their investment holdings; while managing their risk exposure, Ki’mola has created a unique investment opportunity, rarely before offered to the Indigenous Community.

For the first time, First Nations are being provided an opportunity to invest in leading class investment opportunities in a variety of projects, including;

  • Downtown Toronto Real Estate
  • US Real Estate
  • US Retirement Centres
  • Infrastructure & institutional projects
  • New Technology Developments

How it Works

Our investment partner Terra Genex is continually developing new investment projects, up to 4 per month. These projects cover a wide range of industries and sectors, including;

  • Canadian Real Estate
  • US Real Estate
  • Retirement Centres (US)
  • Infrastructure and Institutional Projects
  • New Technology Developments
  • Alternative Energy

Terra Genex’s projects are financed through its 100 private and institutional investor group base. This group provides the necessary project equity and covers the development costs.

For the first time, First Nation and Indigenous groups are being provided with an opportunity to invest alongside this group.

All projects are invested through a new Limited Partnership structure and are guided by a Prospectus (Business Plan) with all investment funds held in trust through independent legal support (Top 5 law firm).

Over the past 5 years, their projects have generated annual returns of 18% – 22%. Investors have seen stable cash yields, lower exposure to public market conditions and inflation. Additionally, these investments allow for a more diversified investment portfolio.

Each project has a predetermined exit strategy and returns are realized through the sale of investors partnership units. Most projects have a timeline of 3-5 years.
