What's the difference?

   Mutual Funds*   

Mutual Funds* are investments that pool your money with other investors to buy a portfolio.  There are many mutual fund categories to choose from, ​including equity, fixed income, and balanced funds.​  These can be held on their own or in an RRSP, RESP, TFSA, RDSP, or RRIF.

A good option if:
  • You want high diversification in your portfolio and would like your assets managed by professionals
  • You want to choose your risk comfort level

   Stocks**   

Stocks allow you to benefit from the success of a company either through dividends or capital gains.  They can be purchased through equity mutual funds or exchange traded funds via Credential Securities. 

A good option if:
  • You want higher returns
  • You have a longer time frame
  • You can take on a higher level of risk 

   Bonds**   

If you’re looking for more conservative investing options, bonds are likely a good option.  Typically issued by federal, provincial, or municipal governments, bonds are guaranteed.​

A good option if:
  • You want less risk
  • You prefer stability
  • Have a conservative investing profile
