Index Linked Valuations

 

Index-linked products offer returns based on stock market index performance; equity-linked products offer returns based on the performance of individual stocks within an equity basket. These products are a good option for investors because, unlike mutual funds, there is no chance of a loss to the original investment.

Horizon Credit Union offers our members three index/equity linked products to meet your investment goals:

  • PRAIRIES BASKET™ Equity-Linked Term Deposit, which allows investors to profit from the success of companies in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The return is calculated using an average of monthly index returns. The basket contains 13 companies that are household names on the Prairies. The companies picked encompass a wide variety of industries.

*Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation guarantees to all depositors, repayment in full of all deposits in Saskatchewan credit unions. Your initial deposit, or principal, in an index-linked term deposit is fully guaranteed. The return these deposits realize is linked to the performance of a stock exchange. Therefore the return cannot be guaranteed. However, repayment of the principal is fully guaranteed. Return is only fully guaranteed once the credit union is holding it.
