RRSP investing provides a unique investment oppourtunity to people who would like to invest but feel that they do not have the money.
Many people feel that they are in this situation and find out that they actually have more money available to them than they thought. Your RRSP funds are available to you to invest as you choose.
But aren’t my RRSP funds “locked away” once I have made my contributions?
No. You can switch your RRSP fund to a “self directed RRSP account”. This allows you rather than your adviser to manage your investments. Your money is still secure with your registering company but you can choose where to invest it.
What happens to my money once it is designated as self-directed?
In effect, your RRSP serves to purchase a mortgage on a real property and it gets a return paid to it in the form of interest payments. Your RRSP is acting just like a bank loan; it provides investment money towards a revenue property and receives interest in return. Property is one of the most reliable investments available and we are currently in a very strong and secure growth market. The RRSP funds are registered on the title of the mortgage for your protection. We are able to offer you stable and locked in annual interest rates between 8 and 12%.
RRSP investing is a creative way to increase your investment capital and portfolio options.
