Helios and DFS Guaranteed Investment Funds Reimbursement of Fees - A first in Canada!



    As part of the Helios Contract guarantees, Desjardins Financial Security
    will reimburse a portion of the fees clients pay to protect investments.

    MONTREAL, Nov. 2 /CNW Telbec/ - The Helios Contract launched on October
29 sets itself apart part not only with its flexible made-to-measure approach
and its Guaranteed Minimum Withdrawal Benefit, but also with another
innovative feature: the reimbursement of fees.
    "We don't think twice about insuring our car or our home because we don't
want to risk losing them. The same thing applies to investments. Clients buy
guaranteed investment funds to protect themselves against market downturns,"
explains Eric Lemaire, Senior Advisor, Marketing, Individual Savings, at
Desjardins Financial Security. "Market crashes don't happen very often, but
when they do, they can have serious consequences. So, if clients don't have to
use their guarantee, why not offer them a reimbursement?"
    Desjardins Financial Security offers an innovative solution that can
reimburse a portion of the fees clients pay to protect their investments.
Under its Guarantee 100/100 r, the Helios Contract will refund a portion of
the fees if, ten years after the investment, the portfolio has grown in value.
This way, clients benefit from a reimbursement when their investments perform
well, and from protection if markets drop.
    With the Helios Contract and the Guarantee 100/100 r, Desjardins
Financial Security is the first insurer in Canada to refund fees clients pay
to protect their investments. This makes it one of the best-priced guarantees
on the market.
