There are distinct differences between annuities and certificates of deposit. Most certificates of deposit are short-term investments. Some of the products featured in this workshop are annuities and are sold by prospectus. Annuities are long-term insurance products designed for retirement purposes.

Many registered annuities offer four main features: (1) a selection of investment options, (2) tax-deferred earnings accumulation, (3) guaranteed lifetime payout options, and (4) death benefit options. Before investing, you should consider the annuity’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. The prospectus contains this and other information. Please read it carefully.
