Private Equity Key to Strategic Expansion

Having recently partnered with Bermingham Construction, a Hamilton-based manufacturing company and winner of the 2008 E&Y Manufacturing Entrepreneur of the Year award, C.A. Bancorp was a key component in its successful transition to global markets. Mark MacDonald, Managing Director, Private Investments, will discuss the process of working with a private equity firm for the first time. C.A. Bancorp is an alternative asset manager that specializes in small and mid-cap opportunities. C.A. Bancorp seeks to help private companies innovate by investing expertise and intensive analysis of macroeconomic themes, industry trends, and market dynamics.
Having a partner like C.A. Bancorp helped the family owned business move from stagnation to dynamic growth to markets far more dynamic than the mature North American marketplace. It takes guts to allow in partners but do you want to be rich or be in control?" asks Jacoline Loewen, author of Money Magnet and partner with Loewen & Partners.

Corporate Bully said...

Att: RBC Bank President Gordon Nixon - Salary - 11.73 Million!!


I'm a commercial fisherman fighting the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC Bank) over a $100,000 loan mistake. I lost my home, fishing vessel and equipment. Help me fight this corporate bully by closing your RBC account.


There is no monthly interest payment date on the contract.
Date of first installment payment (Principal + interest) is approximately 1 year from the signing of my contract.
Demand loan contracts signed by other fishermen around the same time showed a monthly interest payment date on their contract,(agreement).
The lending policy did change at RBC from one payment (principal + interest) per year for fishing loans to principal paid yearly with interest paid monthly. This lending practice was in place when I approached RBC.
Only problem is the loans officer was a replacement who wasn't familiar with these type of loans. She never informed me verbally or in writing about this new criteria.

Commercial Fisherman - I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Speak to BDC and see if they can help. They are much more knowledgeable about these details than I am. Good luck.
