The financial advice industry -- including banks, mutual fund and insurance companies -- has a vested interest in our hard-earned savings. Industry advisors are constantly warning us that we may not be financially prepared for retirement. And, feeling anxious about our future, we become convinced that it’s a good idea to let them handle our money. After all, they seem to have all the answers. But retirement planning today isn’t the same as it was in the past. We’re living longer, leading more active lives, with more options about how we want to live once employment is no longer the main focus.

Industry veterans Warren MacKenzie and Ken Hawkins have seen firsthand the mistakes that Canadians make in their financial preparations for the future. In The New Rules for Retirement, they offer simple, unbiased advice while at the same time debunking the many myths surrounding retirement.
