At CIBC Imperial Investor Service, we've put together a combination of simple, straightforward tools and resources to help you make more informed investment decisions.

Cash Management

One of the most effective ways to reach your investment goals is to set money aside regularly.

CIBC Imperial Investor Service Regular Investment Plans

It's easy to build your investment account, RRSP, or RESP with the CIBC Imperial Investor Service Regular Investment Plan. CIBC Imperial Investor Service offers the opportunity to set up regular automatic debits (in any amount) from your bank account (CIBC or another financial institution) into the mutual fund of your choice, on any schedule (minimum regular investment amounts apply).

CIBC Imperial Investor Service Systematic Withdrawal Plans

Systematic withdrawal plans provide you with a simple, effective way to receive additional income from your investments while still maintaining your investment's growth potential. These plans are designed for mutual fund investors who depend on cash flow from investments to supplement their other sources of income. A systematic withdrawal plan works by selling a certain dollar amount of your mutual funds at regular intervals to provide you with a consistent stream of income.

  • The cash transfer functionality allows you to move funds easily between your Imperial Investor Service account and your CIBC bank account
  • Sweep accounts ensure regular cashflow, particularly if you depend on your investments for income, by moving your interest and dividend payments directly into your CIBC bank account
  • Access to higher interest rates through your cash account means that your cash is never sitting idle - the higher your balance, the harder your cash is working for you
