Save for your first home, that emergency fund you’ve been meaning to start or even retirement.
An investment portfolio is like a sock drawer.
Investments are the socks—assets that you use to reach your goals. The portfolio is the drawer—the container that holds all your investments...like stocks, ETFs, mutual funds and cash.
At RBC InvestEase, our portfolios are made up of ETFs and cash.
Like swimming pools, ETFs are structures or containers. While pool walls are designed to hold water, ETFs are designed to hold stocks and bonds in a single container. That container is a fund you can buy.
While they're similar to mutual funds, ETFs don't have investment minimums. Also, an ETF can offer more trading flexibility since it trades on an exchange throughout the day, with prices fluctuating continuously.
Behind the scenes, there’s a talented team of Portfolio Advisors taking care of the important stuff, like:
Just as eating veggies, fruit, protein and healthy carbs helps you to enjoy a balanced diet; in the world of investing, balance is having a mix of assets in your portfolio to help reach your goals.
Over time, deposits, withdrawals and performance can cause your portfolio to drift from its original mix. To help keep your portfolio on track, we will buy or sell the appropriate ETFs to rebalance your portfolio.
Get started with any you’re comfortable with. We’ll invest it for you once your balance reaches $100 or moreLegal Disclaimer 2. That means you can benefit from and start growing your investments without a lot of money.
NOMI Insights for RBC InvestEase helps you make progress towards your financial goals by letting you know when you may have spare cash available to invest.
For balances of $100 to $1,499, we invest in a “Small Balance portfolio,” which is similar to a full portfolio, but with fewer ETFs.
When your balance rises above $1,500 we transition you to a full portfolio. The best part? There's no additional cost or action you need to take.
Unlike simple interest, where you earn interest on your initial deposits only, compounding returns means "interest on interest". The interest earned on your contribution amounts is reinvested, so you earn interest on the new total—the original amount plus the interest.
The longer you stay invested, the bigger the impact of compounding. That's why it's so smart to start investing early.
To get the ball rolling, we’ll ask you some simple questions so we can recommend an investment portfolio that’s customized for you.
Once we have your info, we’ll recommend a portfolio of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) designed to align with your investing goals and feelings about risk.
You can choose a Standard Portfolio or Responsible Investing Portfolio as well as the account you want to hold it in, including a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or non-registered account.
Once your account is opened and you've made your first deposit, our Portfolio Advisors take care of the rest, so you can get back to focusing on your life. You can log in to check on your investments anytime, create new goals and easily transfer more money into your account.
It's a pretty sweet way to invest!
