Frequently Asked Questions

Why invest in bank stocks?

Quality bank stocks have a strong history of generating profits and managing crises, making them a great investment.

In addition to their strong performance, many of Canada’s top banks pay dividends, with payouts that increase over time. For Canadian investors looking to pocket a little extra from their stocks, dividends can help you buy more shares or more cash.

Finally, bank stocks can help diversify your investing portfolio. If you already have stocks in other sectors (mining, technology, energy), bank stocks could add much needed stability, as well as expose you to the gains in another sector.
