What are group investment plans?

Group Investment Plans

In general, a group investment plan is where a business sets up an investment plan for each employee and contributes on each participating employee’s behalf. The investment vehicle is typically a RRSP or TFSA product, but there are other plan types that use different types of investment products. The business sets up and administers the accounts, deciding which funds to invest in and contributing on a regular basis – usually a percentage of the employees annual salary.

Each employee owns their account and should include it as part of their broader investment portfolio. When the employee leaves the business they retain ownership of the investment account, but the business stops making contributions.

No cost to the business

There is no cost to set up or administer a group investment plan, and the contributions made by the business are tax sheltered. Many businesses use a group investments plan to differentiate themselves from other employers to help attract the best talent available.

There are many different types of group investment plans offered by a number of providers. Whether you’re looking for a simple, low-cost solution or something more progressive, you’ll likely find a number of different options that might seem like great fits for your needs.

Let our financial investment experts find and manage the best group investments plan to attract the best talent available and to guide your employees along their own paths of sound investments for the retirements they deserve! Give us a call, we’re here to help.

Helping your employees prepare for their retirements

Group Investment Plans

Group investment plans are a great way for an employer to help get their employees started towards their retirement investment goals or to boost their efforts if they’ve already started on their own retirement savings plans. Contributions to your group plan and the income benefits your employees receive are tax sheltered, giving you a tax-efficient way to attract the best talent available.

Individual tax advice for your employees

As part of our on-going support of your group investments plans, our investment planning advice and services is available to each of your employees. We’ll take the time to help them think about and set their retirement goals, create an investment strategy (which the group plan would be part of), and have regular check-ins to make sure that they’re on track to meet their goals.

We’re just another way you can help attract top talent and help them save for their retirements!
