Investment into Insured Annuity vs GIC

To ensure your income during your retired years, the best options would be investing into GIC and Insured Annuity. But which one is more suitable for you? Before diving into, let’s make sure we  understand both terms.
GIC or as a guaranteed investment certificate, is an investment that offers a guaranteed rate of return over a period of time that is fixed. Most often, it’s banks or trust companies that provide GICs. GICs have a low risk profile, thus, the return from a GIC is generally less than other investments.
Insured annuity is basically a combination of term life insurance and a prescribed life annuity. The life annuity provides a guaranteed income stream and the term life insurance policy provides a cash payout upon a death claim.
