We’ve celebrated the new year and made it through the first few weeks of winter. As Canadians, that can only mean one thing – we are in the middle of RRSP season. With the March 1 RRSP deadline approaching, this issue of our Assante Well-Advised newsletter takes an interesting look at the RRSP.
On page 2 we address the question that’s been on many investors’ minds: Are RRSPs still the best choice? The article explains why its tax advantages continue to make the RRSP the number investment vehicle to build retirement savings. The savings theme is also highlighted on Page 1 where we explore situations that call for saving more.
Advisors always want to know when significant changes happen in your life, and the article on page 3 explains why. Case studies illustrate ways that unexpected life events necessitate financial planning changes.
Family members get the spotlight on page 4. One article looks at the situation of a relative asking for a loan, and the other article examines the option of naming your child as executor of your estate.
We hope that 2019 is a healthy and prosperous year for you and your family. Please feel free to contact us whenever we can help you with information or advice.
