General Investment Account

General Investment Account:


A General Investment Account (GIA) is a flexible investment account that allows you to invest in a broad array of financial assets, including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Unlike tax-advantaged accounts such as Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) or pensions, GIAs do not have contribution limits or restrictions on withdrawals. This makes them an attractive option for investors seeking more freedom in how and when they invest.
