Amount available
  • Minimum of $500
Repayment
  • Loan payment frequency is flexible: weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or single payment in full

  • No prepayment penalties: Pay off your loan whenever you want, in part or in full, without being charged extra fees

Other

* Borrowing to invest is a leverage opportunity. If the loan amount is invested in investment funds, the risk is even higher. See a Credential Asset Management Inc. Mutual Funds Representative to find out more.
