MONTREAL, Nov. 26, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In the spirit of all the special
deals that abound under the banner of Black Friday, Laurentian Bank is
offering investors, for three days only, the possibility of obtaining
up to double the return on their fixed, non-redeemable 1-5-year
guaranteed investment certificates (GICs).
"Black Friday is a unique occasion to benefit from some of the most
attractive promotions of the year," underlines Bianca Dupuis, assistant
vice-president of Investment products at Laurentian Bank. "While most
people have their minds set on spending with the approach of the
holidays, we would like to remind them that, regardless of the time of
year, it is important to adopt a disciplined approach to saving, and
this special offer constitutes a perfect investment opportunity
featuring a very advantageous rate of return."
Flexible Terms for Investors!
Between November 29 and December 2, investors can choose the term of the
GIC that best suits their needs — from one to five years. To be
eligible for this special offer, the amount of the investment must be
at least $500, which will be admissible for such financial vehicles as
RRSPs, TFSAs or non-registered accounts. The funds used to procure the
GIC may not originate from a Laurentian Bank account, and the promotion
does not apply to renewals.
Investors can obtain additional information about the promotion by
