How do I open a joint account?

You cannot open a joint account on the Fundscraper platform. Each investor must have an individual account for compliance purposes.

Investors have the option to place a joint non-registered subscription on the Fundscraper platform. In order to do so, both investors must complete a KYC confirmation call with a Dealing Representative. 

The Fundscraper platform does not have an option to add beneficiaries for registered or non-registered accounts. Registered investments (TFSA, RRSP, etc.) are purchased on an individual basis.

However, at your Trust company, you have the option to add a beneficiary to your registered account.

What are the income tax consequences of the debt investments or equity investments?

Since all types of investments will be structured and sold to investors as limited partnership units, every investor must annually declare the capital gain/loss, interest income, or dividend income as it accrues. Prospective investors should consult their own tax and accounting advisors.

How do I fund my investment?

The primary way to fund your investment is via an ACH transaction from a linked bank account. You can link your bank account either by:

1. Directly entering your routing and account numbers or
2. Manually filling out our PAD form.
