I am a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) in Canada. At work, I write financial plans and give objective advice regarding all types of savings and investment products. I believe that not having money worries can allow people to spend their time in other meaningful areas of their life. I am married, have three children and am involved in my church, in my community association and in the school.
The focus of my writing is “thinking out loud.” Investing and financial planning are both more art than science. Because that’s the case, they require creativity and reflection. I personally need to think out loud in order to gather my ideas, synthesize, and produce useful advice. I try to write three times per week. I also write on Mondays at Canadian Dream.
Monday: A brief overview of the financial environment and stock market outlook. This will be a snapshot in time, meant to assess the current environment. It is not a prediction.
Wednesday: Any subject about finances and investing, including financial planning.
Friday: An investment idea. This does not constitute investment advice. It will contain limited information about a publicly-traded company. It may prompt the reader to do more research.
I may miss some Friday posts, if I simply don’t have a new idea. I feel no obligation to divulge my own investment portfolio or any professional recommendations I may make.
My very first post can be found at https://financialthinking.wordpress.com/2009/05/22/introduction/ for anyone who would like to read all the posts in chronological order.
