About RealAlt® Investments

The RealAlt® High Yield Mortgage Trust gives investors access to Ontario-based real estate mortgage investments with superior, risk-adjusted returns, and monthly distribution payments.

RealAlt® began in 2021 as the brainchild of Brian Dorr, the president and CEO of Dorr Capital, a commercial mortgage and development financier.

Traditionally, the mortgage investment market was limited to ultra-high-net-worth investors. RealAlt® opens this market to ‘everyday and knowledgeable’ private investors, non-accredited and accredited, providing an alternative to stock and bond assets for a more diversified investment portfolio.
