Segregated funds are very similar to mutual funds. A large pool of money is invested in stocks, bonds, or other securities with the goal of growing the value of the entire pool. But segregated funds are actually structured as insurance contracts, so they have some benefits that mutual funds do not.
Guarantees - Segregated funds can guarantee 75% to 100% of your contributions (minus withdrawals) when the contract matures, or on your death. The value of the contract is not guaranteed at other times.
Potential creditor protection - If the beneficiary you've named qualifies, segregated funds are generally protected against seizure by creditors. This can be a big advantage for business owners and professionals wanting to protect against an unexpected lawsuit or bankruptcy.
