Guaranteed Investment Certificates (GICs)

An RBC GIC could be ideal for your RDSP if you want to invest for a specific term at a guaranteed rate without risking your initial investment. Your investment earns interest, at either a fixed rate, or based on a pre-determined formula. In general, GICs with longer terms earn higher interest rates.

Key Benefits of RBC GICs(1):

  • Your original investment and interest rate are guaranteed for the full term of the investment(2)
  • Competitive interest rates
  • Flexible investment terms ranging from 30 days to 10 years

Savings Deposits

Similar to a regular savings account, RBC Savings Deposits are a simple way to start contributing to your Registered Disability Savings Plan. They can be particularly useful as a temporary solution if you are not ready to make a long-term investment decision.

Key Benefits of RDSP Savings Deposits:

  • Security and safety
  • Interest calculated daily and paid semi–annually
  • Low minimum deposit required
  • Easy and convenient access to your money
  • Ability to switch the balances to RBC GICs or RBC Funds
