Most people are unaware of what the Exempt Market is all about. While banks and large investment houses play a significant role in the Canadian economy, they may have less interest in funding Small and Medium sized Enterprises. As a result many companies must seek alternative means to raise capital. The Exempt Market is integral to these businesses in order to meet their capital requirements. The Canadian Securities Administrators estimated the exempt market to be over $150 billion in 2011, compared to the public market, at over $60 billion. Yet, most investors have never even heard of the Exempt Market as a result of generally seeking their investment advice from Banks.

The Exempt Market is an essential component of our capital markets for entrepreneurs, small business, start ups, and investors. As it relates to business, the Exempt Market industry fills the financing needs of those who do not meet the criteria of the traditional brokerage world. As it relates to investors, many of the Offerings from this industry fill the need of lower cost, easy to understand, non-correlated investments.

The Exempt Market Dealers Association (EMDA) is a not-for-profit association founded in 2002 by a number of key participants in the Exempt Market securities industry who saw a need for a collective voice to preserve the flexibility and unique culture of the Canadian capital markets and the Exempt Market in general. The EMDA mandate is to continue to be active in the growth of the Exempt Market's public profile and the improvement of the efficiency and integrity of the private capital markets while creating more awareness of the Exempt Market and its role.

Over the past several years, the Exempt Market has become more regulated by the Securities Commissions. The EMDA connects its members across Canada, fosters development of the Exempt Market by allowing entrepreneurs to efficiently raise capital and investors to participate in a broader range of investment options while being the voice of the Exempt Market Dealers locally and nationally to securities regulators, government agencies and other industry associations in the capital markets. The EMDA is the first in the industry to present awards to issuers and dealers, to encourage best practices, high standards of conduct and to also recognize Exempt Market business leaders who are helping build a vibrant and successful Exempt Capital Market in Canada.

One of the Exempt Market Dealers recognized at the 2013 EMDA Awards Event, held at the National Club in Toronto on May2nd, was Sloane Capital Corp. (Sloane). Already one of the largest Exempt Market Dealers in Canada, Sloane offers a diverse selection of both income and growth investment opportunities to qualified clients in most Canadian jurisdictions.

"Investors can realize a more balanced portfolio without all of their exposure being in the public markets" claims the President of Sloane Capital Corp., Stephen Freedman. "Qualified investors can diversify their portfolio in a wide variety of asset-backed opportunities from long-term growth in Real Estate, to income producing funds in Mortgages, Structured Finance and Alternative Energy to name just a few."

In fact, Sloane received the prestigious Renewable Energy Deal of the Year Award presented by the EMDA on May 2nd.

"It is tremendously rewarding to be recognized by your investment peers for all of the hard work and endless hours our firm has put in, in order to help advance a successful investment" says Freedman.

It is the hope that the public becomes more aware of the diverse range of investment opportunities available to qualified investors in Canada. It is through organizations like the EMDA and companies like Sloane Capital Corp. that the Exempt Market will continue to receive more exposure.
