Here Is How To Insure Your Investment Against Disaster
In today’s volatile market, it’s a great time to invest in segregated funds because of the financial protection they offer as they grow in value. These insured investments provide satisfying performance along with the comfort of knowing that your money will always be insulated against whatever global disruptions might occur.
Insurance is a time-tested way to protect your valuables against disaster. You have insurance for your car and your home. Doesn’t it make sense to also protect your investments?
Segregated funds are administered by insurance companies. They are underwritten against loss for up to 100% of their original value (depending on your contract).
The stock market won’t safeguard your money, nor will a bank. The Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation (CDIC) insures deposits for member institutions, but there are limits. Banks and trust companies can only cover $100,000 of your money. While this is great for high-risk mortgage loans, CDIC does not protect investment products like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.
It makes sense in today’s volatile economy to shield your investments. Your FORTAX Financial Advisor can show you how to do this with segregated funds. Because they’re insured, you will enjoy both a maturity guarantee and a death benefit guarantee.
