After Retirement

Segregated Funds

Segregated funds give your money the chance to grow, while providing built-in guarantees to keep it safe.

Key Benefits of Segregated Funds

Guarantee Your Original Investment

The death benefit guarantee ensures a specific percentage of the value of your investment will be passed on to your beneficiaries.

Lock-in The Market Gains

When markets go up, some segregated funds let you “reset” the guaranteed value of your investment.

Protect Your Money from Creditors

If you own a business, talk to your financial or legal advisor to see how segregated funds could protect your money.

Want to protect, grow and preserve your money? Segregated funds come with their own set of unique features.

responses to questions

FAQ!

I don't have a lot to invest. Are segregated funds for me?
You can start investing in an RBC Guaranteed Investment Fund (GIF) for as little as $50 per month when you set up a pre-authorized debit (PAD) plan.
What types of accounts can I hold RBC GIFs in?
You can hold RBC Guaranteed Investment Funds (GIFs) in a number of account types, including Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs), Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs), non-registered plans, locked-in plans and Registered Retirement Income Funds (RRIFs).
How do resets work?
If a segregated fund has a “reset” option, you can reset the guaranteed value of your contract when the market value becomes higher than the original value (or “book value”) of your investment. This reset function allows you to keep pace with market growth. Generally, when the reset feature is used, the maturity date will also be reset.
I don't qualify for life insurance. Can I hold a segregated fund?
Yes. Segregated funds are actually ideal investment solutions for individuals who don’t qualify for life insurance. That’s because they offer death benefit guarantees that ensure your beneficiaries will receive a guaranteed percentage of your original investment (less any withdrawals and fees) upon your death. There is no medical checkup or underwriting required.
Can I access my money before the maturity date?
Yes, you can withdraw from a segregated fund before the maturity date, however your guarantees will be affected. They will be proportionately reduced by any withdrawals or fees applicable to the withdrawal.
