Index Linked Term Deposits

What is an Index-Linked Term Deposit?

Education Credit Union's Index-Linked Term Deposit secures your principal plus a minimum guaranteed 1% rate of return at the end of the term.

The Index Linked Term Deposit is an investment that guarantees your principal* but has the potential for a higher return. Because of this, it is much more secure than other investments. The growth follows an index, so it has the potential for a much higher return than other term deposits. 

The ECU Index Linked Term Deposit also has a 125% participation rate on the 5 year term deposit, making your return even higher. 

3 or 5 year term deposits available for your RRSP, TFSA or RESP.

Who Should Consider an Index-Linked Term Deposit?

If you are looking for an investment that offers the potential for a higher return than your typical 2%, or are simply not willing to risk your principal, this could be the investment for you. Investors must be 18 years or older with a minimum $1,000 investment. Contact your ECU branch today for details on the current index-linked term available.
