Which investments are least risky?

In general, a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) is the lowest-risk investment, because your principal is guaranteed.

Depending on your investor profile, you may be interested in an investment solution like the NBI Secure Portfolio1 or the NBI Conservative Portfolio, or a liquidity solution. These investments focus on protecting your principal.
