TYPES OF ACCOUNTS
- MUTUAL FUNDS
- DAILY INTEREST SAVINGS ACCOUNTS
- SEGREGATED FUNDS
A mutual fund is a professionally managed type of collective investment that pools money from many investors and invests in a basket of investment securities (typically stocks, bonds, short-term money market instruments, other mutual funds, other securities, and/or commodities such as precious metals). The mutual fund will have a fund manager who trades (buys and sells) the fund's investments in accordance with the fund's investment objective.
Mutual funds are an excellent way for smaller investors to diversify their portfolios. Specialized mutual funds such as precious metals funds, high yield funds, or overseas investment funds help investors access the specific expertise and concentrated efforts of different fund managers

Term Life Insurance
Term life insurance is designed to provide affordable life insurance protection for a specific period of time, or “term” as the name indicates. The term may be a fixed number of years (eg. 10 or 20 years) or to a set age (eg. age 75). If you die during the term, your beneficiaries will receive a death benefit. If you don’t die during the term, no one gets the death benefit and the insurance ends. However, some term life insurance policies can renew at the end of each term for a further term, which lets you keep your insurance for a longer period of time if you need it.
Premiums, or the price you pay for your insurance, typically stay the same during the initial term, but increase each time the policy renews for another term, and the renewal premiums may or may not be guaranteed.
Mortgage Life Insurance is a life insurance plan that is designed to cover the balance of your mortgage should you pass away. It is a term insurance product where the term of the policy matches the time it would take to pay off the mortgage. The policy remains in force even if you sell the property or change mortgage providers.
Mortgage insurance is typically provided by your mortgage lender with the purpose of protecting the lending institution. The following are the benefits of our policies:
Our premiums are guaranteed to be more affordable than your lender
You are the owner of the policy and not your lender
Your coverage does not decrease in line with a mortgage as it does with your lender
You are free to select who gets the benefit for your policy, as opposed to your lender automatically being the beneficiary.
Your family can choose to cover the mortgage as well as use the benefit for any other needs.
Permanent Life Insurance
Permanent life insurance is designed to provide insurance protection for your entire life, no matter how long that is. This means you can keep your life insurance coverage as long as you live, provided you pay your premiums when they are due. And if you die while your insurance is in effect, a death benefit is paid to your beneficiaries.
Permanent insurance typically accumulates a cash value over time, and under certain circumstances, you can borrow money from the insurance company, which is secured against the value of your policy. If you choose to cancel your insurance, you receive the cash value of your policy at the time of cancellation, minus any amount you owe to the insurance company.
Premiums for permanent insurance are often guaranteed not to increase as long as your insurance is in effect.
Make sure you're covered for everyday health needs, medical emergencies and rising drug and dental costs with supplemental health insurance.
