My bank is suggesting market-tracking GICs as an investment portfolio for part of my retirement nest egg. What is the deal (pros / cons) with this type of investment?—Bryan

Should you buy market-linked GICs?

Guaranteed investment certificates (GICs) are safe investments that can be purchased by Canadians. They typically have a term of between one and five years and pay a predetermined rate of interest to investors.

What is a market-linked GIC?

Some financial institutions offer GICs that are tied to the return of a particular stock market or stock market sector over the term, like those your bank is recommending, Bryan. They are most commonly referred to as market-linked or equity-linked GICs, but they may have other names.

These GICs have variable returns that depend on the performance of the underlying index.

The Importance of Crafting a Compelling Narrative About Your CompanyThe journey from idea to IPO is a difficult one. In this series, we look at how founders scaled their startups and reached new milestones.

Brandon Moffatt has spent his career solving complex problems. As owner and vice president of London, Ont.-based StormFisher Hydrogen, Moffatt has led the development and construction of more than $1 billion in clean energy infrastructure and is currently developing a facility for creating hydrogen and other low-carbon fuels. He’s an entrepreneur, an engineer and an environmentalist, and he excels at all three. In short, he and his company have a good story to tell. His problem? Finding the right way to tell it.
