Benefits of Investing in Mutual Funds
A mutual fund is a group of investments, such as stocks or bonds, in a single fund. This way, mutual funds allow you to invest in different companies or bonds at the same time. Investing in mutual funds means putting some of your money in a larger pool of funds managed by professional money managers. Due to the large sum of money in the pool, and because your money is managed by specialists, mutual funds can help you diversify your investments, reducing your risk.
Choosing a single company, industry or security isn’t always the best way to invest. Mutual funds can help by allowing you to diversify your investments in many different companies and industries, or in bonds and other securities.
Funds when you need them
Typically, mutual fund units can be redeemed – or “cashed out” – at any time. The redemption value will depend on how the fund’s sales charges are set up and the fund’s unit value on the day of redemption. This may be lower or higher than the original purchase price.
Buying a mutual fund means investors can put their money into a variety of securities at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a similar mix of securities individually – a cost that’s shared with other investors.
We can help you pick mutual funds based on your comfort with risk and individual investment goals, putting you in control. Your choice of mutual funds can be updated as your life changes.

Benefits of Investing in Segregated Funds
In a nutshell, a segregated fund is a pool of money spread across different investments. It’s managed by experts and helps you diversify your savings and protect them from dips in the market. Depending on how much you’re looking to invest, there’s a broad range of series choices with different fee designs.
Guaranteed Savings Protection
Choose one of our guarantees for maturity and death benefits, 75% or 100% of the amount invested, to help ensure your savings remain protected. This means that when your investment reaches its maturity date or when you pass away, if your investment is worth less than its guaranteed value, the insurance protection will top you up. Naturally, it will be proportionally reduced by any withdrawals.
Invest in one of the widest selections of segregated funds in Canada, managed by award-winning investment managers. An advisor can help you make your choice based on your comfort with risk and financial goals.
When you designate a beneficiary other than your estate, the value of your segregated fund policy flows directly to him or her, generally bypassing the estate and potential probate fees, if any.
Potential creditor protection
Laws may protect a segregated fund policy in the event of bankruptcy or other action by creditors. It’s important to note that creditor protection depends on court decisions and applicable legislation, which can be subject to change and can vary in each province; it can never be guaranteed.

Our disciplined and thorough review and monitoring process means you can confidently and credibly offer these funds to your clients.

Features and guarantees vary by policy and age of annuitant and some limitations apply. Maturity and death benefit guarantees are reduced proportionately by withdrawals.
A description of the key features of the segregated fund policy is contained in the information folder.
Any amount that is allocated to a segregated fund is invested at the risk of the policyowner and may increase or decrease in value.
