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 securing 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.
