WINNIPEG, May 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Investors Group is offering support to clients and communities across Canada affected by flood.
Investors Group is making a $50,000 corporate donation to the Canadian Red Cross as part of its appeal for flood-affected areas including British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and parts of Atlantic Canada. In addition, the company will match donations made by its employees and Consultants up to $1,000 per individual.
"We know that many of our clients, employees and Consultants have been personally affected by flooding, including loss of their homes or significant damage to their properties or livelihoods," said Doug Milne, Executive Vice-President, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer. "Through the devastation, we have also seen communities come together, like the Consultants and staff in our Gatineau, Quebec office who all joined in to fill sandbags, while others have been raising money and volunteering in different ways. Our contribution acknowledges these efforts with the hope that people can recover as quickly as possible."
The company will also support clients affected by flood through the following:
- Clients may defer their mortgage payments, capitalization of payments or arrange refinancing to assist in reconstruction.
- Requests for investment redemptions will be rushed to ensure that clients receive money as quickly as possible.
- We will offer leniency on NSF charges due to insufficient funds.
- Clients may stop pre-authorized contributions to their investment accounts at any time.
Clients are encouraged to contact their Investors Group Consultant with any concerns or changes to their mortgage payments or investment contributions.
