Black Friday at Laurentian Bank: doubling the rate on GICs for a potential return of 3.15% (1)

08:30 EST Tuesday, November 26, 2013

MONTREAL, Nov. 26, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In the spirit of all the special deals that abound under the banner of Black Friday, Laurentian Bank is offering investors, for three days only, the possibility of obtaining up to double the return on their fixed, non-redeemable 1-5-year guaranteed investment certificates (GICs).

"Black Friday is a unique occasion to benefit from some of the most attractive promotions of the year," underlines Bianca Dupuis, assistant vice-president of Investment products at Laurentian Bank. "While most people have their minds set on spending with the approach of the holidays, we would like to remind them that, regardless of the time of year, it is important to adopt a disciplined approach to saving, and this special offer constitutes a perfect investment opportunity featuring a very advantageous rate of return."

Flexible Terms for Investors!
Between November 29 and December 2, investors can choose the term of the GIC that best suits their needs — from one to five years. To be eligible for this special offer, the amount of the investment must be at least $500, which will be admissible for such financial vehicles as RRSPs, TFSAs or non-registered accounts. The funds used to procure the GIC may not originate from a Laurentian Bank account, and the promotion does not apply to renewals.

Investors can obtain additional information about the promotion by visiting a Laurentian Bank branch or by contacting the Bank's Client Service Department at 1 800 252-1846.
