Contribute today, think about it later: take advantage of a 3% annual rate on 
a 3-month GIC 
MONTREAL, Jan. 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is kicking off the new 
year with the launch of its Contribute in a Flash promotion that enables 
investors to obtain a 3% annual return on a three-month guaranteed investment 
certificate (GIC).(1) This represents an excellent alternative for investors 
who are undecided or short on time, but who wish to benefit from an attractive 
rate now. More specifically, they can earn interest by contributing to a GIC 
today, while avoiding the crush during the RRSP period. 
"During this time of the year, when people are usually very busy and more 
often thinking about repaying their holiday spending, it can be quite 
difficult to make a well-thought-out investment decision," underlines Guylaine 
Dufresne, F.Pl., Senior manager, Investment and Financial Planning at 
Laurentian Bank. "A three-month GIC can allow investors to put their assets to 
work immediately, while giving them the time to thoroughly analyze their 
financial situation with their financial advisor so as to be able to make 
informed decisions that are in line with their financial objectives." 
In order to take advantage of the offer, all existing or future Laurentian 
Bank clients will have to invest or transfer a minimum amount of $500 from 
another financial institution into an admissible plan by no later than March 
3, 2014. Admissible plans include Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs) 
and Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs). Investment renewals and other GICs held 
at Laurentian Bank are not admissible for this offer. 
More information about the promotion can be obtained from a Laurentian Bank 
branch advisor, or by calling the Bank's Client Service line at
