When a child starts to receive or earn their own money through an allowance, family gifts or a part-time job, their natural instinct is to spend it all. However, it’s never too early to start teaching children the importance of savings, and to respect the fact that money can also serve other goals, like sharing it to help others.
Let’s say it like it is. North American Central Banks have painted themselves into a corner by leaving interest too low for too long. This is what is commonly known as “ultra-easy monetary policy” in the parlance of Bay Street. Well, those days are now behind us judging by the increasingly blunt rhetoric from Central Bankers. To wit, Fed Chairman Powell recently said that inflation would stay high in 2022, but he vowed the central bank will do whatever it takes to bring price increases under control. His Bank of Canada (BoC) counterpart Tiff Macklem admitted to misjudging the strength of inflation at the start of the year and pledged to act “as forcefully as needed” to make up for the mistake. Little wonder interest rates have been rising.

For many, 2020 was seen as a “critical year for addressing climate change.” Riding on a wave of environmental activism, the hope was that the 2020 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), scheduled in November of last year, would solidify plans to reduce global carbon emissions. Instead, COVID-19 and anti-racism movements refocused public attention, overshadowing many pressing environmental concerns and postponing COP26. But while this period of upheaval seems to have sidelined the momentum that environmental concerns were gaining, the social inequalities revealed have pushed many conscious investors to explore sustainable investments — specifically those focused on companies with strong environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles.
