Servus' Profit Share program is a key factor for members

EDMONTON, Sept. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - According to a recent Ipsos Reid study, an overwhelming majority of Servus Credit Union members are satisfied with Servus' annual profit sharing. And that's good news.

"Our members told us loud and clear that they love the Profit Share program," says Garth Warner, President and Chief Executive Officer. "No other bank shares their profits with their members and now we know that it's a big part of why our members love banking with us."

The survey asked members of Canada's second largest credit union how satisfied they were with their profit share amount and if they would be likely to recommend Servus to their friends and family based on profit sharing.

Results show that over 80% of members surveyed are both satisfied with Servus' profit sharing program and likely to recommend Servus to their friends and family.

"Our members use this money to pay down debt, invest for the future or save for a special purchase," adds Warner.

Servus' profit sharing lets them share their success with the people who make it possible – their members. For only $1, anyone can become a Servus member-owner and is then entitled to their share of the profits.

On September 15, Servus launched a new opportunity for members to win double their Profit Share. Until October 31, they're giving away an extra $100,000 to members who purchase an investment or who refer a friend to invest. All the details are available at

The survey found that:

  • 69% of those surveyed who bank at Servus said Servus is their primary financial institution
  • 47% of those surveyed said they are very satisfied to completely satisfied with the profit sharing program
  • 57% of those surveyed said they are very likely to extremely likely to recommend Servus to their friends and family
  • 85% of respondents said they are aware of the Profit Share program
  • 48% of respondents who were aware of profit share said they like receiving a share of Servus' profits

Since 2009, Servus has shared over $220 million with their members:
