Designing Your Retirement Income
It is harder than ever to create a worry-free retirement cash flow to pay for lifestyle after age 60. Low interest rates on bonds, fewer pensions, kids at home and longer lives have left the average Canadian struggling to find enough money to survive in retirement.

The full range of investment products possibly considered for retirement including: dividend paying stocks, preferred shares, corporate bonds, GICs, bond funds and ETFs, REITs, TSWP mutual funds, guaranteed withdrawal insurance products, segregated fund from insurance companies and much more will be covered.
