Investment & Savings



An investing product where the investor owns a share or equity of ownership interest in publicly traded corporations or companies. When stocks are purchased, the investor becomes a shareholder in the company and has the opportunity to benefit from its growth and profitability.

Key Features of Stocks

  • Stock Exchange: The primary stock exchange in Canada is the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), which is the ninth-largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization. The TSX is home to many well-known Canadian companies across various sectors.
  • Types of Stocks: There are different types of stocks available, including common stocks and preferred stocks. Common stocks represent equity ownership in a company and typically provide voting rights and the potential for dividends and capital appreciation. Preferred stocks generally offer fixed dividends but may have limited voting rights.
  • Trading and Investing: Stocks can be bought and sold online, with a brokerage or with the assistance of a licensed Investment Advisor. Depending on investor goals, an individual could choose to trade stocks actively, buying and selling frequently to take advantage of short-term price fluctuations, or they can opt for a long-term investment strategy, holding stocks for an extended period to benefit from the company’s growth over time.
  • Risks and Rewards: Investing in stocks comes with risks, including the potential for loss of capital if the stock price declines. However, stocks also offer the potential for significant returns, especially over the long term. It’s essential to conduct thorough research, diversify your portfolio, and consider risk tolerance before investing in stocks.
