Tandia Investment Shares
Benefits of a long term rate without the commitment
Tandia Investment Shares are an exclusive investment opportunity only available to our members. These shares offer members the potential to realize an excellent rate of return while helping build the Credit Union’s capital base for future growth.
Tandia Investment Shares have historically had a high rate of return with annual dividends being paid to shareholders. They are a safe, secure investment that is not impacted by market volatility. Your investment helps make Tandia stronger and offers you peace of mind knowing that we are committed to our community and members.
While it’s too early to declare what 2023’s dividend rate will be, members will be able to take advantage of 2022’s interest rate hikes if the 5-year bond rate is higher than our minimum*. Our current 5-year rate is 4.30%**.
* While dividends are not always guaranteed, Tandia has always strived to pay dividends to shareholders. The dividend declared will be subject to available earnings and Tandia’s financial performance.
** Rate is valid as of April 5, 2023 and is subject to change without notice.
While previous releases of Investment Shares have closed, members can avoid missing out on future releases by adding their names to a waitlist where they can acquire Investment Shares through a transfer from another member*.
For more details on how to be added to the Investment Shares waitlist or to redeem, please visit your local branch or contact the member solutions centre.
*Investment Shares are not an ongoing investment offering, however, periodically existing Investment Shares are redeemed and become available for sale. When offered, Investment Shares are sold for a limited period, on a first-come, first-served basis and are TFSA, and RRSP eligible. Investment Shares are securities that are non-cumulative, non-voting and non-participating. It is important to note Investment Shares are not eligible for insurance by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA). As well, the dividends are not guaranteed.
Investment Shares are considered capital of the Credit Union and as such, redemption is limited and subject to regulatory conditions. The Credit Union can only redeem a maximum of 10% of total eligible Investment Shares each year.
Dividends are declared by the Board of Directors each December. Dividends may be reinvested in additional shares or paid out as cash. The Offering Statement for each Series provides full details.
Yes. If a member makes a request to sell their Shares or indicates interest in purchasing additional shares, abiding by Board policy, Tandia will attempt to accommodate these requests by matching members who want to sell with those who are interested in purchasing. Shares may be transferred between Tandia members only.
Tandia cannot guarantee that it will be able to facilitate any transfer requests. To initiate the sale or transfer of Investment Shares or to request the purchase of available Investment Shares from an existing Series, please visit your branch or contact the Member Solutions Centre.
Both RRSP and TFSA funds are eligible for Investment Shares. RRIF funds are eligible too – please speak to a Member Solutions Advisor to determine the best plan for including Investment Shares in your RRIF portfolio.
