Bond ETFs vs. GICs. If you have a 5 year GIC, you have zero risk. There is no volatility. VSB-T has price risk for the next 5 years and it does not mature. It is not a replacement for a GIC. You are taking interest rate risk. A bank is a better way to play it if you want a slightly higher yield than a GIC.
