Wealth Management does not mean you should be wealthy to gain benefit from what this service can offer. Our team of financial professionals are here to help you achieve financial goals that are tailored to your personal situation at every stage of life. This starts with building assets, protecting what you have built, planning for retirement, and transferring assets to beneficiaries through effective estate planning.

Today’s world offers many types of investments. Each investment type provides different opportunity for growth and income earning, and each has different tax consequences as well.

Investments

Today’s world offers many types of investment. Each type of investment provides different opportunity to grow, earn income, and has different tax consequences. Horizon Credit Union offers many types of investments for both registered and non-registered investments to meet individual and agriculture business owner financial goals.

AgriInvest Accounts

An AgriInvest Account helps producers manage small income declines. Each year, producers can make a deposit into an AgriInvest account and receive a matching contribution from federal and provincial governments. Producers have the flexibility to withdraw the funds at any time to cover small margin declines or for risk mitigation and other investments.

AgriInvest is part of the Growing Forward suite of federal-provincial-territorial Business Risk Management programs. Growing Forward is a commitment to Canada’s agriculture sector that’s focused on achieving results, reflects input from across the sector, and delivers programs that are simple, more effective and tailored to local needs.

Loans and Leasing

Everyone has different needs and financial strategies for their farm or ranch. Each farm or ranch operation requires a different financial structure. That is why Horizon Credit Union has many different loan or lease options available to you. Our professional lending staff work with you on an individual basis, providing practical information and tools to design loans especially to meet the needs for your operation. For operating funds or if you are expanding your farm or ranch, Horizon Credit Union offers a variety of loan and lease options, farm mortgages and loans under the The Farm Improvement and Marketing Co-operatives Loans Act (FIMCLA).

FIMCLA increases the availability of credit to farming operations and farmer-owned marketing co-operatives to improve farm assets and strengthen production and financial stability. It encourages the provision of intermediate term debt to farmers for the improvement and development of their farming business in order to maintain an efficient agriculture production capability. Individuals, partnerships, corporations or co-operative associations actively engaged in farming and operating the farm as a business with the intent to making a profit are eligible to apply.
