Where can I buy mutual funds?
- Banks and trust companies
- Life insurance companies
- Credit unions and caisses populaires
- Mutual fund dealers
- Brokerage firms
- Mutual fund companies that sell directly to the public.
Also, if you have a Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP) at work, it may offer you mutual funds. Someone in your Human Resources (HR) department can tell you about your choices.
Tip: Life insurers and mutual fund companies usually sell just their own products. If you want to have a range of different mutual funds, you may have to go to more than one company. Or, go to a bank or brokerage firm that sells funds from different companies.
Remember: Only buy mutual funds from registered advisers
It's the best way to protect yourself from unsafe investments.
