Your Profile

You can choose from many different investment products. In some cases the return is guaranteed, while in others it is not. Why are some investors willing to take risks? Because they hope to earn a better return. The fact is that the higher the expected return, the greater the risk you must be prepared to accept: guaranteed investments usually generate a lower return in the long run than financial products that are not guaranteed.

You can have different accounts with different investment goals

This questionnaire will give you an idea of your investor profile. You can of course have several accounts, each with different investment goals and horizons. For example, you can have an investment goal for your RRSPs, another for your RESPs and a third for your TFSA. Still, for tax considerations, your portfolio can be assessed globally. In any case, contact an AMF-certified representative, who will take your personal and financial situation into account.

Your personal investor profile

Some investors can handle seeing their investments fluctuate sharply from day to day, while others lose sleep over it. That’s why an investment that’s suitable for one person may not be so for another. To find out which investments suit your needs, you have to determine your risk tolerance. As a rule, the higher the risk, the higher the potential return. You therefore have to decide how much risk you are willing to take.

This questionnaire will give you some insight into your investor profile; however, it is not a substitute for advice from an authorized representative. Don’t hesitate to contact one for more accurate results. The AMF does not accept any liability in connection with the use of this tool.

5 Which of the following statements best describes your investment knowledge?

Your level of knowledge is important to determine the investments best suited to your needs. Investors should never make investments they do not understand. They should always know and understand the risks, the potential returns, whether the funds can be easily accessed if needed, the fees involved and the tax implications.

6 How would you describe your current financial situation?

AMF

7 In the future, can one or more of the following events affect your budget balance AND require you to use a large part of your investments sooner than expected?

If you have an emergency fund or enough insurance to cover these situations, do not check any boxes. Otherwise, check all that apply:

Headlines – Stock Market Crash!
“The crisis could be worse than the Great Depression of 1929,”
cautions a well-known expert.
Crash boursier
With stock markets plunging 30% in just a few months, renowned financial analyst Know-It-All recommends that investors exercise caution. In his view, a number of factors suggest that the markets will continue falling, maybe even more than 50%.

“An unprecedented global recession is looming, with major economic slowdowns observed in several countries. Some countries have crippling debt that they will never be able to repay. Their bankruptcy will be costly and send ripples around the world.”

* These amounts take into account the information entered in questions 1 and 2.

12 Investments that offer high returns are usually high risk. The charts below show the annual hypothetical return (annual gains and losses) of 5 different investment portfolios over a 10-year period. With which of the following investment portfolios would you be most comfortable?
