Who else wants to invest in financial markets without risk?


We live in an era that demands the best of both worlds. Why should your investment options be any different?

The answer is, they shouldn’t.

With little guarantees in life, your principal could be one of them.

Meridian is offering investment solutions that provide the potential to capitalize on the growth of multiple major corporations without running the risk of losing your principal investment.

Meridian’s Environmentally Responsible Investing and Technology Index-Linked GICs provide you the flexibility of playing the stock market without developing the pit in your stomach that comes with the potential of taking a loss. That’s because your principal on these index-linked GICs are 100 percent guaranteed.

Index-linked GICs function similar to a traditional GIC in that they offer ultimate security on your investment. The fun part is payments on your return are based on the performance of stocks. Your incremental return accrues when the market is up, while your money is insulated from potential market fluctuations.

See - best of both worlds.
