Investing FAQs

Registered plans are accounts with different tax treatments. For example, a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) is a government-regulated investment account with special tax benefits to help you maximize your retirement savings. Deductible contributions to an RRSP help reduce your taxes, and any income you earn on your investments while in the plan grow tax deferred.

Within these investment accounts, you can invest your money in many different products that grow in value over time, such as mutual funds, GICs, and so on. 

A general guideline is to save three to six months of living expenses to get you through unforeseen events, such as job loss, illness, or major home repairs. Having an emergency fund helps you avoid dipping into your retirement savings or borrowing from your credit card or line of credit. Contribute whatever you can to your fund. Even $20 a month can make a big difference over time. Follow these 3 steps to start your emergency fund.

Investing automatically through a pre-authorized contribution (PAC) can help keep you on track to meet your financial goals. PACs eliminate the guesswork of when to invest and can allow you to take advantage of potential compound growth. And with a PAC for your RRSP, you can avoid the stress of making last minute lump-sum contributions. Find out more about a PAC and how to set one up online.

A financial plan gives you a complete picture of your finances by focusing on your current needs and future goals. It includes longer-term goals, such as retirement, and shorter-term goals, such as saving for a car or a home. Your Scotiabank advisor can help you build your financial plan and also serve a regular check point to help you stay on track. Check out our step-by-step guide on financial planning.
