Do you Have the Right Investments for a Comfortable and Secure Retirement?

An Investment Coaching Program for Women retiring in less than 10 years

Women's Financial Learning CentreIf you’re like most women approaching retirement you understand the importance of making smart decisions with your money, but you aren’t sure if your investments are being managed as well as they should be.

Even if you are working with an investment advisor, you may be struggling with how to do a proper assessment of your portfolio and whether your retirement goals are achievable. Confusing financial jargon and advisors that don’t take the time to learn about you, your concerns and real-world needs only adds to your frustration.

Please join Karin Mizgala, co-founder of the Women’s Financial Learning Centre and Money Coaches Canada for a day dedicated to you and your investment success.

This program is particularly suited to women who are less than 10 years away from retirement.

Together, we will answer many of your questions on money, investing and securing your financial future, including:

  • How are my investments really performing?
  • Are my investments well-suited to who I am, my unique circumstances, and where I want to be in the future?
  • How can I protect what I have while still building wealth?
  • Will I have enough to retire?
  • How can I assess whether my advisor’s recommendations are truly in my best interest?
  • Is real estate a better investment than the stock market?
  • RSP, TFSA, ETF, Mutual funds – how do I decide what’s best for me?
  • How much am I really paying in fees? ? (You are probably paying thousands of dollars more than you need to!)
