What are the primary benefits of investing in Lysander-Canso Fixed Income Funds relative to GICs?
- Greater Initial Yield – Lysander-Canso fixed income funds’ portfolios generally have greater yields than 1-Year, 3-Year, and 5-Year GICs as of June 30, 2021.
- Historical Outperformance – Lysander-Canso fixed income funds have demonstrated outperformance compared to GICs, as of June 30, 2021.
- Optionality – GICs are locked-in for a predetermined amount of time. Unless you pay a penalty (likely forfeiting interest accrued or worse), you cannot reallocate your capital should a better investment opportunity present itself. Lysander-Canso fixed income funds provide daily liquidity, which gives the optionality to re-deploy capital at any time.
