This ensures that you are consistently investing in the highest GIC rate (i.e. 5 year term) and that you have funds maturing every year in case you need the funds.
You are continuously investing in the highest GIC rate available, which will increase the return on your savings. Over time, you will earn a higher average rate of return than if you continuously invested in 1 Year GICs, for example
Your investment is guaranteed and your interest rate is fixed. This means you’ll know precisely how much interest you will earn and the GIC is guaranteed with limit by the Deposit Guarantee Corporation of Manitoba.
You will have one GIC maturing every year, providing you with liquid funds in case you need.
