As you may have noticed, ING DIRECT isn't like a typical bank. For one thing, we have no branches - and because you do everything with us by Internet, or phone, we're able to pass those savings on to you. One way we do this is by paying you more interest on your savings without charging fees. But that's just the start.
Our organization is made up of people who are united in our unpretentious, can-do mentality and our drive to deliver results for our Clients. And whatever we do, we're always connected to the bigger picture - helping you save your money and live a better life. Our Clients have earned over $5 billion in interest with us.
About ING DIRECT Funds Limited
ING DIRECT Funds Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ING Bank of Canada. ING DIRECT Funds Limited has been selling mutual funds in Canada since November 26, 1999 with our office and operations located in Toronto.
In April of 2012, ING DIRECT Canada turned 15 years old. In honour of this milestone, and to remind Canadians what we stand for, we sent out a new message saying, "stop banking in the past". The message reinforces that outdated banking is not what Canadians want or deserve. It's our way of renewing our commitment to help Canadians live better lives.
On April 27th 1997 the first ING DIRECT in the world was launched right here in Canada! We wanted to give Canadians real choice in banking, and a much needed break from fees, service charges, and low interest.
