Index Linked Term Deposit

A term deposit where your principal is protected, providing a lower-risk alternative to investing directly in equities.
Interest is tied to the growth of the S&P/TSX 60 over the term of the deposit, allowing for the potential of greater returns than standard deposits.

2 term options: Secure 3 year or 5 year non-redeemable fixed terms.
Index-Linked Term Deposits can be part of registered plans, and deposits are eligible for deposit insurance (subject to provincial limits)..

Unlike other term deposits, there is no guaranteed return on this product.
Depending on the performance of the stocks comprising the S&P/TSX 60 Index over the term, it is possible that, at maturity, the investor will receive only their principal back.

A product option that has been available with Central 1 since 1996. Osoyoos Credit Union added this product to our investment fleet in 2020.
