Solutions to Managing Volatility for Long-Term Success

Principal Protected Notes can help reduce the impact of market volatility on your portfolio.

Principal Protected Notes blend the characteristics of growth-oriented and yield-generating investments while protecting your principal. Innovative and tax-efficient, principal protected solutions are available with a variety of terms and features.

Underlying assets may include:

  • Stocks
  • Commodities
  • Mutual funds
  • Interest rates
  • Indices
  • Foreign currencies


  • Principal Protected Notes provide the best of both worlds – security and higher return potential – in one, simple solution
  • Provides peace of mind – Guaranteed by the Bank of Montreal
  • Exposure to equity market growth without downside risk

 GROWTH in our portfolio is essential as we are:

  • Living longer
  • Spending more time in retirement
  • All saving for something

PPNs may be suitable for you if you:

  • Prefer the safety of conventional bonds and GICs but seek higher potential returns
  • Wish to participate in the potential growth of equity or commodity markets, without the risk of losing your initial capital investment
  • Seek the potential to receive interest payments linked to the performance of the underlying assets
  • Would like to include fixed-term investments as part of your portfolio
  • Believe in a buy-and-hold investment strategy
  • Generally prefer investments that do not require active management

PPNs may be:

  • An attractive investment alternative to both direct equity investing and traditional fixed income products.
  • Different from conventional fixed income investments. The Deposit Notes do not provide investors with a return or income stream prior to the Maturity Date, nor do they provide a return that is calculated or determined by reference to a fixed or floating rate of interest.
  • Suitable only for investors who: (i) are prepared to assume risks with respect to a return linked to the price performance of the Shares; (ii) are prepared to hold the Deposit Notes to maturity; (iii) do not require a guaranteed return; and (iv) understand the terms of the Deposit Notes and the risks involved in holding the Deposit Notes.
