i get their emails too, and I've never understood why the rates they cite at the beginning of their email as Specials are not necessarily reflected on their rates chart pages where they show you which FI is behind the rates.

Once again, the RiF gets the shortest end of the stick.

Has anyone here used GIC Wealth Management? Any problems? I ask because all their links are broken on their home page. Everything is going to a 404 error page. Makes me wonder...

Yes, I was wondering about them as well given the 404 errors.

I have not booked any GIC's with them to date, though I did set up the process, for a situation if and when it arises. That has not occurred so far.

I believe they've been around for several years, but prolonged errors on one's website in this day and age is troubling.

Consider seeking out a local GIC broker whose office you can visit and deal face to face. That has worked best for me if/when I am dealing directly with an institution.

Used them many times. As have a lot of others here. Good GIC broker.

If you look around the various threads, this question has been asked and answered before.

You may meet with a representative of GIC Wealth if you live in the GTA. Just call them and arrange an appointment.

Interestingly the principals of the Company were unaware of the problem.

I got in touch with my contact there to alert them of the problem this morning. Sounds like they may have had some sloppy IT work done on their website, which has been corrected as you noticed.
