Market-Linked GIC

Tap into the stock market with a Market-Linked GIC.

Accessing the stock market couldn't be simpler. Even if the market takes a hit, your initial investment is always safe with a Market-Linked GIC*. 

Our Market-Linked GICs offer a 1-Year Canadian Financial Services GIC or a Global Diversified GIC with a term length of 3 or 5 years. You can invest two ways: the first option gives you a guaranteed minimum return rate, but that guarantee means the maximum amount you can earn is a bit lower. The second option doesn't give you a guaranteed minimum return rate, but the maximum amount you can earn is higher.


Key features:

    • Only need $500 to get started
    • Choose a term length of 1, 3 or 5 years
    • Potential to earn higher returns linked to stock market performance (Canadian or Global options available)
    • Principal investment protected
    • Available as a Registered Account such as an RRSP or TFSA

3-Year Global Diversified with minimum guaranteed return

† On January 2, 2018, Agrium Inc. (AGU CT) and Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT CT) merged to form the new company Nutrien Ltd (NTR CT). This event requires an adjustment of the performance monitoring for both the 3 year and 5 market-linked GICs issued between August 19, 2016 and February 21, 2017 inclusive. The two former companies, AGU and POT, were replaced by the new company NTR at the opening of markets on January 2, 2018. The respective performances of AGU and POT will apply to the new company, with adjustment factors for the calculation of the performance as follows:
    - For AGU CT, the adjustment factor by which the starting price must be multiplied is 0.44843 (1 / 2.23)
    - For POT CT, the adjustment factor by which the starting price must be multiplied is 2.5 (1 / 0.4)
