Term deposits, also known as Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs), are safe investments that give you the flexibility to withdraw some or all of your money before the term ends. With cashable term deposits you can withdraw money before the term matures, but keep in mind you may receive a reduced rate of return.
Non-redeemable term deposits are the safest invesment option because they’re a guaranteed way to earn interest on your savings. Lock away your money to earn a higher rate of interest. Once the term matures, you’ll enjoy a bigger return on your investment.
Market-linked term deposits are a great option to diversify your portfolio. They offer higher growth potential since the rates of return are linked to the stock market. Performance of the S&P/TSX 60 Index*, which tracks Canada’s 60 foremost companies of the Toronto Stock Exchange across 10 industry sectors, determines how much interest you’ll earn.
