Have you maxed out your RRSPs, or are you looking for tax sheltered investments that will carry you well into retirement?
The Capital Group Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) could be the right savings account to help you grow your nest egg.
Generally used as a companion to the Capital Group RRSP, the Capital Group TFSA was created to give you a parallel stream of investing. The Capital Group Tax Free Savings Account has many of the same advantages of the Capital Group RRSP, including:
No transaction fees -- that means no cost to start investing or make changes to the account. It's like a Self-Managed Plan but without the high fees! (There is a small charge to withdraw money - it's not meant to be used like a chequing account)
The same investment choices, including 16 different fund managers and 44 funds, all of which are professionally managed, tracked, and constantly "pruned" to improve performance.
Access to unique products like Target Date Funds and Portfolio Funds that take the guesswork out of investing -- complicated products with strong returns that don't require you to have an MBA to understand them.
All money grows tax free and can be taken out without paying additional tax.
Unlike your RRSP, your TFSA has no age limit to withdraw. With an RRSP, you have to start withdrawing from it by the end of your 71st year. With the TFSA, you can keep your money in it as long as you want to.
Typically, the yearly contribution room is $5,500 and any unused contribution room is carried forward. If you have never contributed – you could have up to $52,000 (as of January 2017) worth of contribution room.
