About Oaken Financial
Oaken Financial provides banking alternatives as a direct-to-consumer business. Its parent company, Home Trust, is Canada’s largest independent trust company. The company provides premium GIC rates. Oaken’s GICs can be purchased online, over the phone, or at one of its branches. Currently, Oaken Financial has branches in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Halifax.
Oaken Financial's GIC rates
Oaken Financial currently offers the highest rates on non-registered GICs, which can be purchased by opening an account. The GIC term lengths vary between 30 days and 5 years. If you want to receive the interest before maturity, you can choose whether you want interest payments to be made to you monthly, semi-annually or annually. Lastly, the investment in any non-registered GIC must be at least $1,000. Oaken also offers cashable GICs, which offer slightly lower rates than its non-redeemable GICs. Additionally, you can also purchase registered GICs in a registered retirement income fund (RRIF), tax-free savings account (TFSA), or registered retirement savings plan (RRSP). These registered GICs also have competitive rates but the minimum investment increases to $2,500.
