GIC's and fixed term deposits aren't the only kind of guaranteed investments available. Many other types of investments can give you a guaranteed interest rate. They are just as secure as bank GIC's and sometimes even more secure. The interest rates are always higher than what the banks will give you.
How is this possible?
In order to understand how some companies can offer such high interest rates you need to understand what a GIC is.
GIC stands for for Guaranteed Investment Certificate. It is a way for the bank to raise money so they can lend it out to you as a personal loan, mortgage, or credit card. You'll notice that the rate the bank pays you is always lower than the rate they charge you when you need money. GIC's are the basis for all the financial services offered by your bank.
Other companies also need to raise money so they can run their business. However, since people don't automatically go to these companies to invest their money, they need to offer a higher rate than the banks, to get your attention.
In fact, companies compete with each other to offer you best interest rate possible in order to grow their business. Companies may need to buy more equipment, build a new building, buy a lump-sum of inventory in order to get a good deal on something, etc. These are short-term needs where the bank won't give them a loan, so they need to go looking for investors.
