Individual and Joint accounts with Saturna Capital allow you the flexibility to invest how you want, when you want — there are no contribution limits or timing restrictions.¹
An Individual account is an account that you open solely in your name and only you are responsible for it.
A Joint account is one account that you share with one or more trusted partners, such as your spouse, children, parents, or business partner(s).
These accounts are appropriate for investors who:
- Want to purchase shares directly from a Saturna affiliated fund and avoid paying brokerage transaction fees on purchases of shares
- Want to invest without the limits typically associated with a retirement or other tax deferred accounts
- Understand that the account is taxable and are willing to pay yearly capital gains and/or income tax on realized returns and distributions
