Mutual funds

A mutual fund lets you pool your money together with other investors, making it easier for you to own a wider range of investments. It includes investments like stocks, bonds, and other funds. A mutual fund pool is administered by a professional fund manager, so you don’t have to worry about buying and selling investments on your own.

 


Vision Credit Union provides access to investment and financial planning services via our experienced, in-house Credential Asset Management Inc. team.

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)

A TFSA is a “tax-advantaged account.” Contributions to a TFSA don’t earn an immediate tax break, but any gains you make on your investments are tax free. A TFSA can be used for any savings goal, withdrawals are free of tax and you can start a TFSA Variable investment at Vision with as little as $50. Another benefit? At Vision Credit Union, our TFSAs also qualify for our profit sharing program.

Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs)

RRSPs are an essential part of any retirement plan, but they also offer financial benefits for today. By contributing to a Vision Credit Union RRSP every year, you build your retirement nest egg, and you also pay less income tax right now. Your RRSP can include different kinds of investments, like GICs, savings accounts, mutual funds, and stocks and bonds.

Registered Retirement Investment Funds (RRIFs)

A RRIF provides regular retirement income from investments previously held in your RRSP. Here’s how it works. Before you retire, you invest in your RRSP where your money can grow, tax-sheltered. Once you retire, you can roll your RRSP investment into a RRIF. Once it becomes a RRIF, you draw an income from it while the funds continue to grow in the RRIF, tax sheltered until they are withdrawn.

Vision offers fixed term and variable rate RRIF plans to provide maximum flexibility for your retirement income options. Contact Vision’s experienced team of Credential Asset Management Financial Advisors.

Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs)

A RESP is one of the most effective ways to save for a child’s education. Your RESP contributions become tax sheltered earnings and they can help you qualify for up to $7,200 in matching contributions from government grants. A RESP can be used for tuition, books, living expenses and more.

Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSPs)

An RDSP is a long-term savings plan to help Canadians with disabilities and their families save for the future. If you have an RDSP, you may also be eligible for grants and bonds to help with your long-term savings. RDSPs are available to Canadian residents (with a SIN number) who have a long-term disability, are under 60 and are eligible for the Disability Tax Credit.
