Besides entertainment, Mirvish Productions has branched out into real estates. Besides the theatres they owned, Mirvish Productions renovated an old bank office tower into the condo project known as One King West in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2018, Mirvish Productions was the largest equity investor in the Series A financing of Toronto-based financial technology company, FundThrough. Mirvish Productions contributed $3.2 million of the total $34 million that was raised.
This investment was a departure from the company's usual investments in art, theatre, and real estate. However, David Mirvish cited a familiarity with FundThrough's business model, which provides businesses a cash advance on the value of their invoices, as being the impetus for his decision to invest.
