Did you know that investing in renewable energy is a great way to put your money to work while also having a positive impact? Through CoPower Green Bonds, you can diversify your portfolio, support renewable energy projects, and earn a great return all at the same time.
Investors can choose between a 6-year Green Bond that offers 5% annually or a 4-year Green Bond that offers 4% annually. Best of all, they’re eligible to be held in your RRSP or TFSA making them a great way to earn tax-free investment income.
Until February 28th we’re extending a special offer to Boomer and Echo readers to help you maximize those tax benefits and keep more of your money.
While investing in Green Bonds directly through CoPower’s online platform is always free, investing through a registered account at a bank or brokerage may mean incurring purchase fees and/or other administrative fees.
We may not be able to control fees charged by other institutions, but for a limited time, we can help cover them. Complete your investment by February 28th and we’ll pay any purchase fee charged by your institution on Green Bonds held in an RRSP, TFSA, RESP or RRIF up to a total of $200.
Get started by creating a CoPower account and filling out an investor application today.
What to know before taking advantage of this special offer:
Please note that while CoPower Green Bonds are registered account-eligible, most major banks will not facilitate private investments in direct investing accounts (eg. CIBC Investor’s Edge, TD Direct Investing). If this is a barrier for you, there are other options.
The simplest route we’ve found is via Questrade, one of Canada’s leading online investment brokerages. To hold CoPower Green Bonds in a registered account Questrade charges a one-time purchase fee of $75+tax (on us) and a quarterly holding fee of $25+tax which will be waived for investors who maintain more than $15,000 in public securities (eg. stocks or bonds listed on a public exchange) in their Questrade account.
Opening an account with Questrade is free and simple and more than 50% of CoPower investors holding bonds in registered accounts have taken this route (we’ve outlined the process here). Note: CoPower Green Bonds are not public securities and fees charged by Questrade are subject to change without notice.
- For many of our investors, but not all, investing via an RRSP or TFSA makes financial sense. With that in mind, we’ve created a simple calculator to help you understand whether it’s more profitable to invest via a registered account or directly with us.
- Our special offer is limited to any upfront purchase fee(s) up to a total of $200. Some registered account providers may also charge an ongoing administration or holding fee that would not be covered under this promotion. Please be sure to discuss any additional fees with your account provider and under what conditions they may be waived.
Our team is here to help. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer but aren’t sure if it's right for you, email email@example.com or book a call with a member of our investor relations team.
Don’t miss out. Invest by February 28th and get the benefits of a greener RRSP or TFSA.
