She has $200,000 outstanding on her personal residence mortgage held by the Bank of Ontario. The interest rate is 4.75%.
She has borrowed $25,000 from the Bank of Ontario to invest in the common shares of a publicly traded company, Underground Airways Inc., that she feels is about to "take off" and realize a large increase in the share price. This company historically has not paid any dividends on its common shares. The interest rate on this loan is 6%.
She has a line of credit with her bank that currently bears interest at 5%.
She has borrowed $75,000 of this credit to fund the purchase of a parcel of land. This parcel of land is currently vacant, but she hopes to build soon a summer home on the property.
She borrowed to fund her maximum RRSP contribution for the year.
She borrowed $23,500 of the line of credit to purchase a Guaranteed Investment Certificate yielding 4%. She gave the certificate to her 12-year-old daughter.
