Get the most for your guaranteed investment

GICs give your portfolio guaranteed growth and reassurance that your money is secure. However, buying a GIC that’s right for you may not be as straightforward as you might think. GICs feature a wide range of interest rates, terms and options and many Canadians end up with a lower interest rate or less flexibility than they wanted.

Your financial advisor can help, with the information and access to get you the best rates and the best features for a GIC that meets your unique investment needs.

Interest rates vary from one financial institution to another. Manulife Bank offers some of the best rates in Canada. And your advisor will recommend only stable secure financial institutions that offer GICs, like Manulife Bank, because a GIC is only as secure as the company offering it. Manulife Bank is owned by Manulife Financial, one of Canada’s largest and strongest financial institutions.
