Term deposits pack a financial punch

The experts in Aldergrove can show you how to get more from your savings plan

Term deposits grow your money faster than a savings account.

“If you have a rainy day fund in a chequing or savings account, you might want to consider the advantages of placing some – or all – of it into a term deposit,” says Diane Motherwell, Financial Service Officer at Aldergrove Credit Union’s Otter Community Branch.

“If you’re looking for a way to round out your savings plan, term deposits can be a great option. Term deposits are a no-risk investment opportunity and a great alternative to keeping your money in a savings account,” Diane adds. “They also work well hand-in-hand with your RRSPs, RRIFs and TFSAs.”

So, what is a term deposit?

Term Deposits give you a guaranteed rate of return, have a specified term, and are 100% insured, making them a safe bet to earn interest even in uncertain economic conditions.

Term deposits come in two categories: redeemable and non-redeemable. Redeemable term deposits give you the freedom to cash out early, whereas non-redeemable terms lock your money in for the full term but usually offer higher interest rates. Aldergrove Credit Union offers both redeemable and non-redeemable term deposits.

A flexible way to save

“Flexible term deposits are a great option if you want the high rate of a longer term, with the option to cash out early in case you need access to your money” states Diane. “With features such as early withdrawal dates, reinvestment options, and monthly interest payments deposited directly into your chequing account, our Flexible 30 Month Term Deposit is a great choice for any investor.”
