Potential creditor protection: With the Segregated fund in most cases, there are no concerns about protecting your money from creditors (including a possible future bankruptcy).
Note: You can not transfer all assets into a segregated fund the day before declaring bankruptcy and expect to avoid all claims. However, there is legal precedent if the arrangements were made well in advance.
Business Advantage: Many small business owners consider investing in Segregated funds as protection against future business risks.
Resets: When the current value of your investment is greater than your original investment, segregated funds allow you to benefit from market gains by resetting your guaranteed values. Resetting your guaranteed values typically extends your maturity date. For example, if you reset two years into a standard segregated fund contract, your maturity date would be moved forward by two years.
A diverse investment portfolio with safety guarantees is a must and Segregated funds are an excellent choice in achieving peace of mind.
Segregated Funds are classed as an insurance contract, which means the assets held in your Sons of Scotland Guaranteed Investment Fund are protected from creditors. Under provincial laws, the interests of insurance beneficiaries may override the claims of creditors. Please feel free to about your individual circumstances and/or business needs.
