Around the World in 100 Words, February, 2019; Week 6

This week’s Around The World (ATW) has readers on the proverbial shrinks’ couch pondering the relationship between finances and happiness. The first is easier to define than the second, but in general terms Canadians intuitively understand that money does play a role in how happy they are. As the article explains, income is a key indicator with happiness rising in line with salaries. Debt and savings levels are also important, as is financial knowledge. Canadians feel better about their financial picture with a better understanding of it.  

None of this is surprising as is my next point: we’re here to help with all of these these. Helping clients know their money is the first step. Knowledge is empowering and returns a sense of control to one’s finances. As do the 6 timeless principles of:

  • Compound Growth
  • Tax Deferral
  • Debt Elimination
  • Time
  • Diversification
  • Living 10%-20% below your means at all times

A Financial Strategy brings all of these together and we are dedicated to helping you set goals and then making a structured, practical and achievable financial program that will help you realize them. This is our commitment to you as our client - our part in your financial happiness.
