Our Experts

Starting from our roots as a friends and family investment club, OKR Financial has forged its reputation with investors by amassing a world-class team. Today, with a growth aspiration of $200 million in AUM, our leaders combine deep financial and business acumen with a broad network and direct access to a highly-curated deal-flow funnel. Simply put, through our strategic partnerships we see first hand the best opportunities.

OKR Family of Funds

The OKR Financial team is proud to celebrate five years of delivering solid returns for investors and novel, flexible financing solutions for Canadian entrepreneurs. As we eclipse $130M CDN in assets under management, we are pleased to roll out a full slate of options for both investors and borrowers.

Mirroring our fully-subscribed and highly successful original fund, which provides debt financing against receivables from government funding and tax credit programs, OKR Premium Fund II targets accredited investors primarily in the angel and family office communities. Investors receive a quarterly yield base on an eight per cent preferred return* and a 50 per cent profit share.

Premium Fund II is an eligible investment and as such investors can contribute through their RRSP’s and TFSA Plans.

*The Preferred Return is not guaranteed and may not be paid on a current basis in each year or at all.

On 31 December 2018, OKR Financial acquired the PART fund from Pinnacle Wealth Management to expose our investors to a broader range of debt financing opportunities including our traditional government credit-backed plays coupled with leasing, mezzanine, and factor-based debt loans. The Diversified Fund delivers a monthly yield and boasts no exit penalties after the initial 1 year holding period, thereby providing investor liquidity.

The Income Fund offers the retail investor the opportunity to participate in the OKR Financial Canadian government-credit secured debt financing model. Available only through registered wealth managers, the Income Fund allows investors with as little as $10K CDN to invest inside their existing portfolios including inside tax-sheltered RRSP and TFSA plans.

OKR Financial’s four-year track record of success and substantial growth in AUM is attracting significant interest from institutions like larger family offices and pensions fund managers. To meet that demand OKR Financial created The Institutional Fund, which applies our Canadian government credit-backed debt financing model to a fund targeting placements at a minimum of CDN $1MM.

  • Institutional Fund I is a pure profit share model with investors receiving 75 per cent of profits after management fees and expenses.
  • Institutional Fund II carries a 12 per cent Preferred Return* and 40 per cent of profits to investors after management fees and expenses.

*The Preferred Return is not guaranteed and may not be paid on a current basis in each year or at all.

The Venture Fund targets accredited investors passionate about emerging growth companies with clear exit opportunities. Venture Capital and Turnaround Investments can be done with as little as CDN $10K, and investors who subscribe for 100,000 or more units will be issued one purchase warrant for every ten units subscribed for.

Know Your Client

OKR Financial is obliged by Canadian securities regulations to establish the identity of, and conduct due diligence on our investor clients. This process is called Know Your Client (KYC). This information forms the basis for determining investment eligibility and whether trades in securities are suitable for investors. This helps to protect the client, the registrant and the integrity of the capital markets. This obligation requires OKR Financial to take reasonable steps to obtain information about our investors. OKR Financial have commissioned KYC services from Robson Capital Management, whose licensed dealing representative, Jeffrey Shaul, will walk you through this procedure. Investors will be invited to complete a questionnaire that will determine investment eligibility and suitability of the trade. This is particularly important to ensure compliance with National Instrument 45-106 of the Canadian Securities Administrators.

Robson Capital Management will also request that investors provide identification and proof of residence so as to comply with Anti Money Laundering regulations (AML). Robson Capital Management does not charge fees to investors for this service. For further information, please contact the Investor Relations Team.
