Whether you wish to invest in Guaranteed Investment Certificates, mutual funds, the stock market, or another of the many different investment products on the market today, what you choose to invest in should be determined after careful consideration of your goals, needs, and objectives.
Your portfolio may consist of any of the following investment options: savings accounts, GICs, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, exchange-traded-funds, annuities, and insurance related segregated fund investments that feature guarantees.
Mutual funds are professionally managed investments that are funded by investors and generally have a diversified holding of stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and other assets. They aim to achieve a specific objective as stated in their prospectus.
The word ‘securities’ is a broadly used term to describe many investment vehicles including stocks, bonds, and exchange traded funds (ETFs), which trade on various stock exchanges around the world.
A segregated fund is similar to a mutual fund but offered by a life insurance company. The assets of the fund invest in stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and other assets. Segregated funds also have access to a well-diversified portfolio of securities and professional asset managers. Many segregated funds provide various guarantees such as maturity, death, or income guarantees. When used in a non-registered account, segregated funds offer the added ability to name a beneficiary and bypass probate which provides a valuable estate planning benefit.
A Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) offers you safety of principle and a guaranteed interest rate for a specified period of time. We have access to GICs from many different financial institutions. GIAs are similar to GICs but are purchased from an insurance company. When used in a non-registered account, GIAs offer the added ability to name a beneficiary and bypass probate which provides a valuable estate planning benefit.
An annuity is a single lump sum investment that provides a guaranteed regular income stream of payments in return. These payments will contain both interest and a return of principle for either a certain term or for life. When used as part of an overall investment strategy, they can offer added peace of mind by ensuring a reliable source of ongoing income regardless of the state of the financial marketplace or economy.
