When you can afford to invest some capital for a period of time and still have enough cash left to tide you over, then guaranteed investment certificates (GICs) are a very attractive option.

+ Excellent returns

Perhaps your assets comprise a sufficient amount of liquidities and cashable investments to face unexpected expenses? Why not consider a non-redeemable investment like a GIC? It boasts superior interest rates at terms that vary from 90 days to 10 years.

+ Predictable returns on investment

Generating stable revenue is a financial objective for many investors, ergo the great popularity of GICs. In fact, they can generate predictable revenues if you choose to receive interest payments at predetermined periods.

+ Guaranteed capital and rates

Perhaps you are considering investments protected against rate fluctuations? GICs offer guaranteed return over a fixed period. This product was designed to make your money work for you, risk-free.
