"I believe we have some of the best investment products and services in conjunction with one of the best investment teams in the industry. With that combination, we’re able to help our members create a financial plan that brings greater clarity, peace of mind, and helps them get where they want to go.

Although credit unions may be perceived as smaller financial institutions compared to others in the marketplace, we’ve joined with hundreds of credit unions across the country to form partnerships with various national organizations. Because of these partnerships, we can offer a full range of investment services including GICs (term deposits), mutual funds, full-service and online brokerage, and full-service financial planning.

As a Mennonite financial co-operative, Kindred is the place for anyone who wants to grapple with how their faith and their finances can be connected!"

Ross Nichol, Senior Financial Planner

"With over 20 years of experience helping people build financial portfolios, I am passionate about helping you live out the intersection of finances and faith-based values."
