04/28/15 4:17 pm

To concentrate or to diversify?

04/19/15 4:26 pm

On driving through the Italian countryside… “There’s no need to drive fast.  It just increases the percentage of risk.  I am not being paid and there is no incentive or reward.  So why would I drive fast?” – Niki Lauda, Austrian former Formula One driver and three time world champion, from the 2013 movie, ‘Rush’ […]

While reading our last issue, an advertisement caught my eye – The Great Canadian Sales Competition.  So, I did a bit of digging to learn more and satisfy my curiosity.  I was pleasantly surprised! So what has this got to do with our RRSP issue?  Surprisingly quite a bit … but I digress.  The brain-child […]

GICs, RRSPs and TFSAs – what make sense for you?

04/14/15 11:31 am

As usual for this time of year, financial institutions across Canada are trying to find a way to separate you from your money – not actually stealing it but rather asking you to give it them (lend) in return for some interest over some period you select. There are traditional GICs that pay a fixed […]

Leading a company through market cycles

04/10/15 11:31 am

Those of us who work in business or are business owners should be well aware of the economy’s natural bear and bull cycles. It can be argued that in today’s modern economy, with its built-in fail-safes and government oversight, the large boom and bust periods of previous centuries are a thing of the past.  However, […]

How To Be Prepared for Rising Interest Rates

04/10/15 9:48 am

I’ve seen a lot of discussions lately that erroneously conclude: “rising interest rates are something to be feared and prepared for” by buying short duration bonds or by liquidating income purpose securities entirely.

Protect Yourself: A Primer on Financial Abuse and ...

Senior financial abuse and fraud continues to be one of the most prevalent and “lucrative” enterprises in Canada.  Approximately 30-35 % of all complaints received by regulators involve seniors.  I suspect the elderly statistics are distorted as it’s my experience that the elderly are usually reluctant to formally complain for many reasons.  Seniors often avoid […]

Paper Money

At a very young age, I would accompany my mother to the bank with the crazy parking lot.  I would watch my mom hand over two pieces of paper (paycheques) to the bank teller.  I was always in awe of how important those two pieces of paper were to our family.  The teller would then […]
