The Hubert email confirming this arrived at 7:02AM. The Rate change is overdue and in the right direction but in view of their September Transition Announcement (https://www.highinterestsavings.ca/forum/hubert-financial/integration-weekend-sep-22-24-weve-been-warned/) I think they'll need much better rates to prevent a rapid bleeding of deposits.

They are trying for new business or soothing over their existing customers to stay after the merger.

Also Accelerate rates were matched.

They might match but Hubert's 1y GIC is no match to any bank as you can take money+interest after 3,6,9 months if needed.

I think that will happen after the change over and not before. Accelerate customers have some real nice gains here. Gain the cashable 1 yr and no fees for transferring out TFSA or RRIF. But they loose, I think, ATM card and cheques.

A modest change but still behind the GIC leaders.

Possibly trying to reduce the volatility of their deposits since they revealed some of the 'enhancements' we're to expect on Sep 22-24.

    Yes ⬆

And perhaps they now realize that they're about to shoot themselves in the foot!

Fingers crossed that they come to their senses, and Fix those 'enhancements'.

It wasn't in the email, but it shows on the site as Warwick1111 posted. Looks like they are keeping the unique Hubert 1-year, but adding in their standard one year, and the cashable/quarterly features will cost you a few basis points.

And if they have two 1-year rates, it will be a pain for Peter's chart... 🙂

Yes I realized that later when I looked at rates on website.

It makes sense. Ha ha maybe one of the only “makes sense” moves made!

It will keep Accelerate only customers happy as they might not “like” the one year quarterly.

Gee the change actually accommodated some one. Oh, but! Who benefits most?sf-surprised Wouldn't want the money to stop rolling in, would we?

Accelerate was one of the few that had 6 and 7 year rates. Those are gone now.

I see some 6 years GICs rates at CANNEX
https://www.cannex.com/public/term02e.html
Including Laurentian Bank at 5.2%

Is Laurentian Bank even going to be around in 6 years?

Giving higher rates for new business is NOT a compensation to all of us that are going through this poorly managed amalgamation. Or is it to bring in new money to replace money lost?

These rates are for EVERYBODY - old and new money and not for 'new customers only' as Tangerine and some other FI do.

Think about it. Huberate customers are getting poor service right now. And existing customers should be compensated in some form!! (I need a new mouse pad) Some are chasing Huberate and some are not and some don't event know. Huberate is losing deposited funds. (Thus the need to encourage new deposits??) In the midst of this MESS they give some better rates. Is that to appease us?? No way....if they wanted to appease us then take all of our GIC's that have a lower rate than currently posted and give us the currently posted rates. Basically that is what Citizens Trust used to do!!!

This mess is costing Huberate. Loss of funds, huge loss of confidence, loss of members, extra costs to update a poorly planned system migration after the fact, and cost for extra payroll to cover phone enquiries. I have an IT background and have never been involved in a system update/upgrade/conversion that is this embarrassing!!! Some ones head should roll on this one!!

sf-smileBut I totally agree the phone service is second to none and is fantastic!!sf-smile
