HelloSafe conducted a survey to understand investment habits in Canada.

The findings reveal that stocks and real estate are the top investment choices for Canadians in 2024.

  • The stock market is the top choice for 46.3 percent of respondents.
  • Real estate is preferred by 34.5 percent of respondents.
  • Life insurance (10.1 percent) and cryptocurrencies (4.1 percent) are less popular options.
  • Other investment options are chosen by 5 percent of respondents.
