Our Specialty: Mutual Funds
Mutual funds are based on a simple principle: pooling your money with that of many other investors in order to offer you access to global markets and a large selection of investments, as well as the flexibility to invest whatever you want, whenever you want.
For your retirement
Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)
Primary retirement savings plan tool, the RRSP lets you accumulate money for retirement. It is meant for anyone under age 71 who has employment income.Learn more about the RRSP
Locked-In Retirement Account (LIRA)
If you change jobs, you can transfer the amounts you have accumulated in your employer's retirement plan into a LIRA, which gives you continued control over your investments.
The amounts invested in a LIRA are locked-in, which means that they cannot be withdrawn before retirement. They can only be used for retirement income.
When you retire, in addition to your RRSPs, you will also be able to rely on your employer's supplemental pension plan, if you have one.
The two main types of supplemental pension plans are defined contribution and defined benefit plans.
When you reach retirement age, several income options are available to you:
- Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF).
- Life Income Fund (LIF).
With the RRIF and the LIF, you can periodically withdraw a portion of your retirement savings. The annuity offers fixed guaranteed payments for life.Learn more about the RRIF, the LIF and the annuities
In the event of a temporary cash shortage, an RRSP line of credit allows you to continue to contribute to your RRSP.
Using your tax refund to pay part of your line of credit will allow you to maximize your RRSP contributions while keeping the same monthly payments.Benefits
- You receive a higher tax refund.
- You benefit from your unused contributions.
- Your reach your savings objectives more quickly.
For your projects
The TFSA stands out because of its flexibility: your savings grow tax-free and you can withdraw the amounts whenever you like without paying taxes. This is the ideal complement to the registered retirement savings plan (RRSP).
All Canadian residents age 18 years and over can open a TFSA.Learn more about the TFSA
Non-registered savings plans play the same role as personal savings accounts. You can accumulate savings to carry out your plans (education, trips, a house, etc.) or increase your retirement income.
If you want to accumulate short-term amounts (safety cushion, vacation, etc.) or if you have reached an RRSP contribution limit, non-registered savings is a solution to consider.Benefits
- Your protection against financial market fluctuations could reach and even exceed 100% of the invested capital.
- We ensure the continuity of your contributions in the event of disability (certain conditions apply).
- With the majority of investment instruments, you have access to your capital and taxes are not withheld. However, your investment income is taxable.
- The RESP is specially designed to accumulate amounts for a child’s post-secondary studies.
- The money accumulated in an RESP is meant to cover tuition fees and all study-related financial expenses, including housing, school supplies, food and transportation fees.
- The investment income from an RESP accumulates in a tax shelter as long as it’s not withdrawn from the plan.
The federal government has created the Canada Education Savings Grant to encourage parents to invest in their children’s post-secondary education. This grant corresponds to 20% of the annual contributions paid into an RESP, up to $500 per year, per beneficiary. The maximum grant paid per beneficiary cannot exceed $7,200 for life.
