What is a
Retirement Plan?

Retirement Savings Plans are medium or long-term investments that can finance different objectives, while maintaining the flexibility to withdraw the capital at any time. They also allow to deal with unforeseen challenges, such as serious illness or long-term unemployment. A retirement plan can also be subscribed in segregated sub-accounts for various leisure purposes such as travel, car purchase and education, benefiting from the lower tax rates on capital gains.
