XSP is riskier than the preferential rate personal loan. The Standard and Poors 500 is a large composite of U.S. equities, hedged (short USD, long CAD). XSP combines the equity market volatility and the USD / CAD volatility but it tries to offset currency value change by holding a hedge. Some of the volatility is offsetting; some is additive. The equity composite risk is acceptable for many investors if they intend a long investment period, for example, 30 years. The USD / CAD risk is acceptable for some investors if both the Federal Reserve and the Bank of Canada manage to achieve roughly equal inflation rates over the long investment period, but XSP's manager aims to minimize this risk. For many investors, the risk of XSP is only acceptable if a long investment period is intended. However, the preferential rate personal loan is likely for a shorter period. Over that shorter period XSP is expected to be riskier than the personal loan. The preferential rate personal loan is made after checking employment history, income, assets, and other indications of ability to meet obligations. A bank's business model is to own loans; not huge amounts of an equity index. Bank regulators force banks to keep risk below a certain level.
If XSP is held in the investor's taxable account, keep in mind that the XSP manager sometimes returns capital to the investor which lowers the investor's average cost. The XSP manager sometimes reinvests cash into more equity which effectively means it raises the investor's average cost. Unless you plan to invest extremely large amounts, you might find keeping track of these things to be not worth the effort.
There was a request for information about XUS. You avoid the "currency hedging risk" inherent in XSP by choosing XUS instead. Currency hedging risk is the risk that the fund manager's hedging activity imperfectly eliminates your exposure to the USD which is inherent in the underlying asset which is based on the S&P 500. By choosing XUS instead, you are accepting "currency risk". That is the risk created by exposure to the USD which is inherent in the underlying asset which is based on the S&P 500.
In this risk chart they show that XSP has both kinds of risks, because the hedging is imperfect so XSP still has currency risk. By implementing hedges, the manager aims to make that currency risk less than what is in XUS.
