Be Fine With Your Financial Plan
Growth. Isn’t that the goal when it comes to your investments? How are you supposed to retire if you aren’t able to grow your wealth? How are you supposed to retire if you don’t have a plan?
“Only one in three Canadians expecting to retire in 2030 are saving at levels required to meet basic household expenses in their retirement..."
and many may need to sharply increase their annual savings or continue working past age 65 to avoid financial hardship, according to a study sponsored by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries.” (Canadian Institute of Actuaries, June 2007)
If you’re like most, the idea of knowing where to start when it comes to a comprehensive financial plan can be overwhelming. Do you understanding the difference between GICs, RRSPs, and TFSAs? When will you be able to retire? Will your kids pursue a post-secondary education? Will your parents be able to afford their own retirement? What would happen to your loved ones in the event of your death?
