Segregated funds

Segregated Funds

Simply put, segregated funds are investment funds you select within an insurance contract. They let you diversify your investments, while the segregated fund contract provides the benefit of insurance guarantees.

Segregated fund investment benefits
  • Choose from a wide variety of professionally managed asset types, such as stocks, bonds and commodities.
  • Diversify your portfolio geographically.
Segregated fund contract benefits
  • Protection of your deposits when your contract matures or when you die, whichever happens first.*
  • Potential protection against creditors in the event of bankruptcy or seizure, if you have named an irrevocable beneficiary, or named a direct family member as your beneficiary. Some limitations apply, so independent legal advice is recommended to determine the availability of creditor protection in your circumstances and jurisdiction.
  • Ability to bypass probate, so funds are paid directly to your named beneficiary.

When you want protection with your market-based investments, look to Transamerica Guaranteed Investment Funds.

*Less proportionate reduction for withdrawals and fees.​ 

In a world of increasingly complex investment products, Transamerica gets back to basics with the Transamerica Guaranteed Investment Funds contract.

Transamerica Guaranteed Investment Funds offer you a great combination of growth and protection through extensive investment options and insurance guarantees. You can also benefit from estate planning advantages and potential creditor protection.

An annuity is an insurance product that pays out income, and can be used as part of a retirement strategy. Annuities are a popular choice for investors who want to receive a steady income stream in retirement.

A Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA) makes guaranteed regular payments to you for life or for a specific period of time in return for a lump sum of money.

There are many variations of a SPIA. It can be issued for a single life, joint and survivor life or for a specific term.


Guaranteed Interest Accounts (GIA)

As an insurance company, Transamerica Life Canada offers guaranteed interest products with features that banks and trust companies can't match.

Guaranteed Interest Accounts provide a valuable service for many investors, especially those seeking capital security.

What is a Guaranteed Interest Account?

A Guaranteed Interest Account (GIA) is issued by an insurance company, but is similar to a Guaranteed Interest Certificate (GIC) offered by banks. A GIA pays a predetermined interest rate on the entire value of the original investment for a set period of time.
