Educational, Finance, Uncategorized

Looking to make a contribution to your investment account, RRSP or TFSA? You can do so in a few easy steps via your online banking.

To set up iA Private Wealth as a new payee:

  1. Log in to your online banking profile or with your mobile banking app
  2. Select “bills” or “pay bills”
  3. Select “add a payee”
  4. Enter “iA Private Wealth” as the payee (note: the exact wording may differ slightly depending on your bank)
  5. In “payee account” enter your account number (no dashes)
  6. In “account description” it is a good idea to write the account type (i.e. TFSA, RRSP) so that you can keep track for future contributions
  7. Select finish


To make a contribution:

  1. Select “pay this payee”
  2. Enter the desired contribution amount
  3. Select finish/confirm transfer


Done! The funds will then arrive in your investment account within 1-3 business days. We always recommend notifying us when you have made an online contribution so that we can watch for the funds to arrive and invest them accordingly.

You may find your account number on your investment statements. It is made up of 7 characters and begins with “38”, for example “38XXXXX”. If you are unsure of your account number, please contact us and we’d be happy to help.

You may find that your financial institution displays a variation of the payee name. The below list of Canadian financial institutions identifies known variations or system limitations an iA Private Wealth client may encounter when remitting a payment:
