Helping you invest and build your wealth.
Whether you are starting out or already have a growing portfolio, through our partnership with Credential Asset Management Inc. and Credential Securities, we can provide you with access to the right mutual fund solutions to help you reach your financial goals.
Mutual funds* are professionally managed investments that pool your money with other investors. Through Credential, you have access to thousands of individual mutual funds as well as an exclusive suite of OnCourse portfolio solutions managed by two leading fund companies, AGF and NEI Investments.
Mutual funds are the products of choice for many investors as they build their portfolios. They offer a wide variety of asset allocations designed to suit different investment objectives. Most will accept regular monthly deposits of all sizes – ideal for dollar-cost averaging your purchases. Mutual funds help diversify risk and frequently generate higher returns than most deposit accounts or other savings vehicles. For sophisticated investors, in partnership with their financial advisor, mutual funds can provide opportunities to help balance and diversify portfolios.
Benefits of investing in mutual funds.
- Professional Management. Experienced professional fund managers have access to extensive market research information and a solid understanding of the intricacies of the financial markets, to help them make informed investment decisions.
- Diversification. When you purchase mutual funds, you're investing in a wide array of companies and industries. You can also invest in different types of assets, such as equities, corporate and government bonds and cash reserves. This level of diversification is difficult to achieve as an individual investor, without considerable effort and money. Such diversification also can reduce the risk of loss from problems with any one company, industry segment or geography.
- Liquidity. When you invest in a mutual fund, you can redeem part or all of your investment at any time. You can usually sell your mutual fund shares quickly and easily on any business day, at that particular day's price. This allows you quick access to your money if you need it in case of an emergency.
