Inflation-Protected Bonds

Inflation protected bonds in Canada are also known as real return bonds. They are different to regular bonds & GIC's with a number of characteristics that make them more suitable for registered accounts. Used appropriately within portfolios and at the right times, they can effectively provide the protection they are designed to provide. As always, the devil is in the detail.
