The Sunova Financial Services team includes Credential Securities Inc. Investment Advisors, Credential Asset Management Inc. Mutual Funds Investment Specialists, and Sunova Financial Services Insurance Specialists. Our team will make sure you receive only the best financial advice and provide you access to a comprehensive selection of products and services, such as:

 

Mutual funds*
Diversify your portfolio to get a higher rate of return (and minimize risk) with this professionally managed investment. When you invest in mutual funds, your money is pooled with the money of other investors, allowing you to invest in a wider variety of securities at a relatively low cost.

 

Stocks*

When you purchase stocks, you are buying a share of a company’s assets, which then gives you ownership in that corporation.

 

Bonds*

With a bond, you are essentially lending money to an entity (usually a corporation or government) for a set period of time and at a fixed interest rate. At maturity, the amount of the bond plus the interest rate is returned to you.

 

The following products are offered through Sunova Financial Services Inc:

 

Segregated funds
Segregated funds are insurance products that have a similar structure to mutual funds. The difference between the two is the principal of a segregated fund can be guaranteed.

 

Life annuities
Another insurance product, a life annuity can help benefit you if you are looking for a set income during retirement.

 

We’re not going to lie, some of these products can be complicated and it’s important to understand the benefits of each. Before recommending any of these products, the Sunova Financial Services team will work with you to understand your individual situation so they can recommend a comprehensive and personalized strategy that will help you achieve your financial goals.

 

And, just in case you are interested, you can also try your hand at managing your own portfolio. Credential Direct® is a top Canadian online brokerage that gives you the chance to buy and trade your own stocks.
