The Credential Select Advantage

Access to Multiple Top Fund Managers
Benefit from the expertise of underlying fund portfolio managers with names you can trust. All managers are experts in their respective area of specialization and style and have met and surpassed rigorous selection criteria based on track record, clarity, consistency, and strategic focus.

Diversified to Reduce Volatility
Your Credential Select Portfolio Fund gains wide exposure to the world's capital markets by diversifying across multiple investment types, manager styles, geographies, and asset classes. Diversification makes your investments less susceptible to market volatility, and positions them better to chart a path of steady growth.

Asset Allocation
Strategic asset allocation is done for you. And since as much as 91% of a portfolio's performance variation can be attributed to asset allocation, not market timing that's an important advantage. Your Credential Select Portfolio Fund takes care of the complexity of asset allocation for you — weighting the asset classes to align with your financial goals.

Automatically Rebalanced
Free yourself from the demands of monitoring your investments on a day-to-day basis. Each Credential Select Portfolio Fund is automatically rebalanced to ensure your portfolio's asset allocation continues to match your risk tolerance level and financial objectives.

Investing Made Even Easier with a PAC Plan

Consider paying yourself first with a Pre-Authorized Contribution or 'PAC' plan. A PAC lets you conveniently and regularly deduct as little as $25 a month (min. $25 per Fund) from your credit union account. Set up a monthly PAC of $100 or more for your RRSP and we'll waive the $25 annual administration fee†.

Contribute either weekly, monthly, every six months, or annually — whatever works for you.

† Applies to PAC plan contributions (equivalent to $1,200 or more/year) in new and existing Credential Select Portfolio Fund client name accounts. Annual administration fee of $25 plus taxes usually applies to RRSP plans with balances below $5,000. Minimum initial investment of $2,500 still applies.
