Product Description

The Global Equity GIC offers the growth potential of a Global diversified equity portfolio all while ensuring 100% principal protection at maturity.


  • 5-year term (non-redeemable).
  • Principal invested on the Issue Date is 100% protected at maturity
  • Eligible for deposit insurance offered by CDIC.
  • Variable Interest payable at maturity is based on the price return of a Reference Portfolio compounded of common shares of 15 Canadian companies, the units of the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust and the EURO STOXX 50® Index. multiplied by the Participation Factor of 72%.
  • The Reference Portfolio Return is an arithmetic average (expressed as a percentage and rounded to two decimal places) of the price return of the Reference Shares over the period starting on the Issue Date of the Global Equity Markets GIC and ending on the Valuation Date.
  • If the Reference Portfolio does not generate a positive price return at maturity, the Canadian Equity GIC will not generate any Variable Interest and, in this case, no return will be paid.
  • No Secondary Market.
  • Exposure to a diversified portfolio of Canadian equities, allowing for higher potential return than conventional fixed-rate GICs.
