The company acts as a mortgage broker for institutional quality mortgages.

Atrium is a niche mortgage lender with a strategy to lend short-term, with loans secured by real estate located in major urban centres primarily Toronto and Vancouver. They focus on short term commercial and residential project loans that would otherwise be placed with financial institution; the average loan term is less than 2 years.

Atrium's policy is the average loan-to-value ratio of the mortgage portfolio, at the time of underwriting each loan, will not exceed 75%. A typical loan in the portfolio has an interest rate of 7.75% to 10% per annum, a one or two-year term and monthly interest-only mortgage payments. Lending parameters are as follows: mortgages on residential and commercial properties up to a maximum of 75% of appraised value; loans on single family residences up to 75% of appraised value; mortgages on income-producing real estate up to a maximum of 85% of appraised value; construction loans up to a maximum of 90% of cost. Mortgage loan amounts are generally $300,000 to $30M. The largest single mortgage in the mortgage portfolio as at Dec-31-2020 was $43M. For loan amounts in excess of $30M, they generally co-lend with a financial institution or private lender.

Atrium is a Mortgage Investment Corporation (MIC) as defined in the Income Tax Act. Accordingly, Atrium is not taxed on income provided that its taxable income is paid to its shareholders in the form of dividends within 90 days after December 31 each year. Such dividends are generally treated by shareholders as interest income; so that each shareholder is in the same position as if the mortgage investments made by the company had been made directly by the shareholder.
