Young Professionals Newsletter

Welcome:
Welcome to the first newsletter by our team for young professionals.
 
One of the topics that I have been very passionate about throughout my career is helping to educate our clients and improve their financial literacy with a mentality that no question is ever not worthy of being asked. For many of us, good financial habits, such as making annual RRSP and TFSA contributions and managing your debt responsibility, are something that have be learnt over time.
 
For me, talking about finances has been something that has been engrained in my personality from talking about money around the dining table, to learning about dividends from my grandfather and running around the old Nesbitt Thomson Bongard trading floor watching orders fly around in the pneumatic tubes. I was blessed growing up with good financial mentors and learning from the lessons and wisdom that has passed down to me from the generations above me. As a parent of three boys, I strongly believe that it is our role as parents that it is important to instill good financial habits in our children as what you learn in your 20s helps to set your financial mindset which makes a large impact in your future.
 
We created this newsletter as a way to help provide additional information to the next generation of young professionals as a way to help educate and pass forward my family’s financial wisdom and lessons that has helped our clients for the last 100 years.
 
I am interested in hearing your feedback on what you think and if there is any topic that you would like to learn more about or that is affecting you; because if it is on your mind, then you are not the only one. Please feel free to share this newsletter with friends and family that you think would enjoy and benefit from the content; and if they would like to sign up for our newsletter, please send me a e-mail to sign up.
