Why choose a Scotiabank GIC?
When you invest in a GIC you’re guaranteed to get your principal investment amount back. Plus, traditional GICs offer a fixed interest rate so you know how much you’ll earn.
Stay safe and secure - Your principal investment amount is 100% guaranteed.
Customize your solution - You can choose the term you want, a fixed or variable interest rate and you can even opt to lock in your money or access it at anytime.
Save on taxes - Reduce taxes by holding your GIC within a Registered Plan, such as your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or your Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA).
