New to GICs?
A GIC is a safe, low-risk investment that functions similarly to a savings account. You deposit money into a GIC account, and that amount earns interest over time. The difference is, a GIC requires you to leave the money in the account for a specified period of time – a term. Upon completion of the term period, you receive the entire sum that you deposited, plus your earned interest.
**Annual interest rate. Interest is calculated daily, non-compounded and paid at maturity. Minimum investment is $500 (with the exception of the Step-by-Step GIC) and $100 for youth under 18 years old. Investments are non-redeemable. Available for new funds or existing renewals. Offers may change without notice at any time.
A Better Way to Invest
How do Investment Shares work?
Investment Shares are a straightforward investment option. Each Investment Share costs $1. There are no commissions or fees associated with purchasing Investment Shares. The minimum purchase is 500 Investment Shares ($500). This can be funded from your WFCU/ECU account, including your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF).
What Are the Benefits?
***Amounts reflected are a comparison of WFCU/ECU Series 1 Class A Investment Shares and a WFCU/ECU 1-year GIC held since 1998 and includes annual compounding.
