Risk factors

Investing in First Mortgage Church Bonds involves certain risks related to liquidity, general fluctuations in interest rates, and general local and national economic conditions and other factors. Certain additional risk considerations are discussed in the Offering Circular including:

  • the special-use nature of the real property securing the church bonds;
  • dependency on tithes and offerings to sustain revenue of the church issuer;
  • ability of the church to issue additional bonds in the future;
  • a limited ability to resell bonds prior to maturity should the need arise;
  • the general absence of ongoing detailed information concerning issuing churches after their bonds are sold to investors;
  • dependence upon the continued spiritual leadership of church pastors. 

Additional considerations for investors:

  • Church bonds have not been rated by any independent rating service.
  • Church bonds, while secured by the church's real property, are not typically guaranteed by any denomination or government, and thus the payment of interest and principal to investors is dependent upon the on-going financial condition of the issuing church and its continuing creditworthiness. 

These and other risk factors are discussed in more detail in the Offering Circular for each bond issue, which you are encouraged to read before making an investment decision. Offers and sales are made only through the Offering Circular which you are urged to review carefully before you invest.
