Investment Shares Series I are here!
We're offering our members the opportunity to purchase Investment Shares which pay a dividend as high as 4.25% until October 31, 2022 and have a strong future return. There's a fixed amount of Investment Share available, and they wont be around long with this time-limited offer!!
Investment Shares are an equity investment in Bow Valley Credit Union offered exclusively to our members. Investment shares are different from other types of investments. These Investment Shares offer our members the potential to realize an excellent rate of return while helping build the Credit Union's capital base for future growth.
Bow Valley Credit Union will be paying a minimum 4.25% annual yield until the end of this fiscal year (October 31, 2022).
For the next two years, purchasers will receive either the 4.25% minimum rate OR the average 1 year Alberta Plus rate + 1.50% (whichever is higher).
Each October 31 thereafter, the rate will be equal to the average yield on our Alberta Plus one-year term PLUS 1.5%. Dividends on Series I Investment Shares are non-cumulative.
Series I Investment Shares may be purchased and held either inside or outside of a Registered Retirement Savings Plan but are not eligible to be purchased as a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RIF).
Visit your local Bow Valley Credit Union branch for more information and to purchase Series I Investment Shares.

The minimum investment is $500 and the maximum is $50,000 per member. Purchases between the minimum and maximum number of shares must be in incremental blocks of 100 Series I Investment Shares.
Series I Investment Shares sales will continue until subscriptions reach the maximum issue of $3 million or until October 15, 2022 — whichever comes first.
