Geo Finance Corporation; Order of Suspension of Trading

December 16, 2014.
    It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is 
a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of 
Geo Finance Corporation (``Geo Finance'') because of concerns regarding 
the accuracy and adequacy of information in the marketplace and 
potentially manipulative activity related to Geo Finance common stock. 
Geo Finance is a Florida corporation with its principal place of 
business located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Its stock is quoted on 
OTC Link, (previously ``Pink Sheets'') operated by OTC Markets Group 
Inc., under the ticker symbol: GEFI.
    The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the 
protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the 
securities of the above-listed company.
    Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in the securities of the 
above-listed company is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EST, on 
December 16, 2014 through 11:59 p.m. EST, on December 30, 2014.

    By the Commission.
