Make peace with your money.
Socially responsible investments are about using your money to build a more economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable world.
All of Kindred’s GICs are socially responsible! We screen businesses to ensure we aren’t lending to those with a record of unethical or illegal practices, or that operate in ways that negatively impact the environment or human rights.
Non-redeemable Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs) are a great, low-risk investment option. They are perfect for short-term savings goals, but can also fit in your long-term investment plans. Plus, all our GICs are validated as Socially Responsible Investments (SRI)!
Mutual funds are an effective way to diversify your investments and reach your long-term goals. We partner with Qtrade Asset Management and Qtrade Advisor to offer mutual funds that fit your values and offer the potential for a competitive return.
Registered Savings Plans
TFSAs, RRSPs, RRIFs, and RESPs are accounts that are registered with the Canadian government, with benefits to boost your savings.
Church Builder GICs
Unique to Kindred, Church Builder GICs are a way for you to support your church and community. Grow your wealth with the security of a GIC, and Kindred donates bonus interest to the church or charity of your choice.
Crisis Care GICs
Part of our Member Assistance Services, and unique to Kindred, Crisis Care GICs offer a way for you to use your innvestment to support those experiencing financial hardship or distress.
Part of our Member Assistance Services, and unique to Kindred, you can designate a Partnership GIC to fund a loan to a charitable organization or an individual — give someone a hand up, rather than a hand out.
