We’re moving ACTRA’s Minors’ Trust funds into the Creative Arts Savings and Credit Union

In January 2013 ACTRA PRS is moving the Minors’ Trust funds from RBC Dominion Securities Inc. to the Creative Arts Savings and Credit Union (CASCU).  After a detailed review of the current portfolio and the future opportunities that CASCU offers, ACTRA PRS and its Board of Directors is liquidating the current RBC Target Education Funds with Royal Dominion Securities Inc.

We are excited about our new undertaking on behalf of our young members, and here’s why:

Guaranteed returns: Under the direction of ACTRA PRS, CASCU will invest the Minors’ Trust funds in Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GIC) where both the principal and the interest earned on the investment are guaranteed.  Each and every dollar invested in the trust fund is protected and guaranteed. As a result, the present and future value of the trust is easily determined at any point in time.

Why we’re switching now: The RBC Target Education Funds no longer supports our “preservation of capital” methodology. In the past few years the stock market has been subject to a greater volatility and now is the time to move the funds to the guaranteed and secured GICs with that the CASCU now offers

CASCU insures your funds: Minors’ Trust funds invested in CASCU will be insured to the amount of $100,000 for each beneficiary. This provides the Trustee and the Beneficiary the comfort of knowing their trust funds are insured through the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO).

Better access to your information: CASCU will provide Minors and parents with online real-time information regarding their trust fund account balance.

No management fees:  There are absolutely no fund or beneficiary fees associated with investing Minors’ Trust funds with CASCU. Each beneficiary can be assured that each and every dollar invested in their name is accruing to their direct benefit.

Protecting the interests of our young performers is taken seriously at ACTRA. ACTRA PRS will continue to closely monitor the Minors’ Trust while saving for our young members’ futures.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email us.
