TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - B2B Trust, a leading supplier of third-party investment and RRSP loans, is ramping up efforts to support financial advisors in the final weeks leading up to the March 1st RRSP contribution deadline. With competitive pricing on its 1 and 2-year variable rate RRSP loan terms, both priced at 2.75% (B2B Trust's Prime Rate + 0.50%), advisors can offer an affordable lending solution to investors looking to grow their RRSPs.
"There has been a lot in the news recently about RRSPs." says François Desjardins, President and CEO of B2B Trust. "Many advisors I've spoken with are convinced that RRSP investing is an important component in their clients' overall financial plans. RRSP loans, in particular, are a good way to kick-start portfolios; B2B Trust's suite of products is designed to respond to customers' needs, with our very competitive rates, our efficient processes, and our commitment to supporting advisors and their clients."
Recognizing that many advisors feel there are simply not enough hours in the day during RRSP season, B2B Trust has developed smart solutions to help them stay organized and on top of their business. Solutions such as:
- An online RRSP Resource Centre where advisors can access RRSP-related
product information, rates, marketing materials, and more, in one
- A recently-enhanced online RRSP loan application (called EASE) that
provides a credit status within seconds of the application being
- An online demo of EASE which illustrates the benefits and ease-of-use
of this application.
"In everything we do," adds Mr. Desjardins, "we aim at making the advisor's job easier. Our RRSP Resource Centre is just one example. The less time it takes them to find the critical information necessary to do their job, the more time they can spend helping their clients plan their financial futures."
In addition to RRSP loans, B2B Trust offers investment loans with more advisor-based options than any other third-party lender in Canada. This vast array of products is highly regarded by the 15,000 financial advisors doing business with B2B Trust.
