Additional services this partnership will make available to credit union members include free financial educational resources, portfolio planning and management tools, independent research and market information designed to help members with their investments.
These valuable benefits are also available to BCU members who have an existing account with TD Ameritrade. Members have 90 days to notify TD Ameritrade of their relationship with Credit Union to take advantage of this preferred pricing.

When we identify an opportunity to deliver more value to our membership, we do so, and working with TD Ameritrade is a great example of a benefit our members would not get from another financial institution, says Tom Moore, Senior Vice President of Financial Products and Strategies/CFO.
The relationship between BCU and TD Ameritrade will be ongoing.
