Dividends vs Term Rates

While it’s too early to declare what 2022’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 term rate is 4.20%**.

* 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 June 15, 2022 and is subject to change without notice. 

Redemption conditions

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.
