Peter Schturyn on why he is buying UCU 75th Anniversary Class ‘A’ Shares:

Diversified Investment Portfolio

I am an investor who takes a balanced approach to managing my investment portfolio and I look for investment opportunities that will bring me the best possible rates of return.

UCU 75th Anniversary Class ‘A’ Shares currently offers a 4% return, which is higher than any GIC on the market today.

I do know these Shares are not GICs, therefore the dividends from the Shares are not guaranteed, but based on the past solid performance and management of the Ukrainian Credit Union, I am confident that UCU 75th Anniversary Class ‘A’ Shares will be a good investment for me.

Ten years ago, I invested in UCU 65th Anniversary Series Shares and I am pleased with both the Shares’ performance and with the steady rate of return on my investment.

UCU will Build a Better Credit Union

I have been a Member of UCU for over 15 years and I have a great deal of confidence in the Management Team and the decisions they have made to improve the operations of the Credit Union.

My purchase of UCU75th Anniversary Shares will help the Management Team build an even better and stronger Credit Union. This will not only benefit me as an investor, but benefit all the UCU Members as well.

Support the Ukrainian Canadian Community

The support of the Ukrainian Canadian community is very important to me. For many years, I have been an active member in different Ukrainian Canadian organizations.

I appreciate UCU’s commitment to being a leader in community investment and for supporting more than 100 charities and organizations each year.
