B2B Trust and Renaissance Investments have signed agreements for the distribution of investment and RRSP loans, the companies announced on Monday.

Under the terms of these agreements, B2B Trust, a subsidiary of Laurentian Bank, will offer preferred rates on its investment and RRSP loan programs to Canadian investors for the purpose of investing in the Renaissance family of mutual funds. B2B Trust supplies the investment and RRSP loan programs to its clients who include 15,000 financial advisors across the mutual fund and insurance sectors, as well as through dealers and managing general agencies.

“Renaissance Investments is an exciting addition to our growing list of Distribution Alliance firms,” says Al Spadaro, vice president of business development at B2B Trust. “B2B Trust and Renaissance Investments share a common interest – providing added value to the end consumer.”

Spadaro said the agreements tie in with B2B Trust’s efforts to give advisors a wide range of options to present to their clients.
