Return (high to low)

Mutual Fund (market, ~7%)

GIC (CD, ~2-3%)

Savings Account (near 1%)

 

Risk (low to high)

Savings Account (FDIC insured, practically zero risk)

Mutual Fund (diversified in the market, unlikely to go to zero, convertible to cash relatively easily)

Collectables (completely contingent on demand, illiquid)
