Are you looking for balance? Or just plain safety? Nothing is simpler than Guaranteed Investment Certificates. As long as you stay within the limits, your capital and interest will be insured and will not be at risk.

Best of all there is no charge on the purchase or redemption of a GIC. And if you’re thinking of a bond fund, take a look at the management fee – the average is 1.5%. Doesn’t leave much for you these days, does it?
