Lantern Financial has been the Southern California leader in Trust Deed Investments since 1993. Our Trust Deed investments offer an attractive alternative to other fixed income traditional investments. Trust Deeds provide consistently higher yields and a stable, steady income stream. Many of our investors invest qualified money, such as IRA accounts as well as for their personal accounts.

At Lantern Financial, we fund our loans with our own resources. We do not underwrite, “As if it’s our own money”. We underwrite knowing it is our own money. When you invest with Lantern Financial, you are buying an existing loan that has gone through a rigorous examination including a screening of the borrower; an appraisal, a title report; and a personal inspection of the secured property by management.

Our first rule of investing is the protection of principal. To that end, we primarily make first trust deeds and we only lend up to 60% of the appraised value of the secured property.

If you have questions about investing in California Trust Deeds, call us at 800-504-0100. We have answers and there is never any pressure to invest.

We are proud of our sterling reputation for ethical and professional service.

    I have had dealings with Lantern Financial on two separate occasions and found them be very professional and helpful.  Both loans were "non-traditional" loans, and the banks were not willing to even look at them. Everyone at Lantern was supportive and encouraging during a high stress time in my life.  I would like to personally thank Ken and Danielle for their kindness and great customer service.  I highly recommend their company, especially when other avenues have failed.

    Lantern Financial were recommended to me through my current lender when I was looking to refinance. At first I was a little nervous going through the transaction, but everything went smooth and after the book! Danielle was very helpful and answered all my questions with a smile.
    Will definitely recommend Lantern Financial to friends and family.
