The Foundation for Your Financial Needs
Today, more and more investors are discovering that the key to successfully managing their cash and investments is by establishing one convenient, flexible and comprehensive account as the foundation for their finances. An Investment Access Account can provide this foundation. It’s an account that provides you with what you need, when you need it.
Easy Access to Cash
When you don’t need your cash, it should be working for you. But when you need money, it should be easily accessible. And when your money needs to move from one place to another, the more automatic the better. The Investment Access Account provides several options for easily accessing your cash. Some of these options include:
Visa Platinum Debit Card
Your Investment Access Account includes a Visa® Platinum Debit Card that provides convenient access to your cash combined with enhanced fraud protection and platinum level benefits.
Enhanced fraud protection — Every time you make a purchase at a chip-activated terminal, a unique transaction code is created, which prevents this data from being used fraudulently if it is stolen.
Liability protection — With Visa’s Zero Liability Policy, if your card is lost or stolen, you are protected against unauthorized use. 1
Platinum benefits — Use the complimentary 24/7 concierge service for restaurant reservations, event tickets, travel arrangements and more.
With worldwide acceptance, you can feel confident using your Visa Platinum Card everywhere you shop, dine or travel.
Additionally, your Visa Platinum Debit Card includes:
- Instant access to cash at more than 800,000 ATM locations and 400,000 banks worldwide;

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of a fund carefully before investing.

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency. Although the funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the funds.
RBC Express Credit is a margin product and may not be suitable for all investors. If the securities in your account decline in value, so does the value of the collateral supporting your loan, and, as a result, the firm can take action, such as to issue a margin call and/or sell securities or other assets in any of your accounts held with the member, in order to maintain the required equity in the account. Before you sign a Margin Agreement, it is important that you read and fully understand the Margin Disclosure Statement, which describes additional risks involved in trading securities on margin.
Visa’s Zero Liability Policy covers U.S.-issued cards and does not apply to certain commercial transactions not processed by Visa. You must notify your financial institution immediately of any unauthorized use. For specific restrictions, limitations and other details, please consult your issuer.
Foreign and Retirement accounts, such as an IRA, are not eligible to be funding accounts.
Basic bill presentment and bill payment are provided at no charge. Value added services such as overnight payments, invoice scanning and data CDs have a usage charge.
