Product Description

From the Inside Flap

If you're a Canadian investor who's feeling ripped off lately, you're not alone. Canadians pay the highest fees in the world when it comes to investments in RRSPs and other registered accounts. Is this just because Canadians are foolish, or is there something more sinister at work?

Now, and for the first time, The RRSP Secret reveals many of the financial industry's most closely guarded secrets - providing the individual investor an unprecedented view into how the financial system negatively impacts the financial freedom of most Canadians. More importantly, the book outlines specifically how to defend your wealth and use a little-known strategy to create double-digit returns - the same way the banks do.

You'll never hear a bank manager or financial advisor tell you about this secret strategy, and you won't read about it in the newspaper. Why? Because they'd rather continue selling you underperforming investments that increase their profits instead of making you wealthy. The financial industry is a massive marketing machine that isn't designed to make you money, and the only way you'll become financially free is if you take control of your financial future - and this is your opportunity.

In The RRSP Secret, Greg Habstritt teaches you how to use the money in your RRSP, TFSA and other registered savings accounts to invest in one of the most reliable and secure investments available to you - and it's exactly the same strategy that the banks use to create profits themselves. You'll finally be empowered to turn the tables on the financial industry, and beat them at their own game. You'll learn how to invest for double-digit returns without having to take massive risks, or pay hidden fees and commissions.

Stop being taken advantage of, and start making better decisions with your money. Your financial future starts now!

From the Back Cover

If you're looking to change your financial future, this is your chance.

You're about to embark on an exciting journey, one that will take you "behind the scenes" to see what's really going on in the financial industry. My goal in writing this book is to help you see things for what they really are-you'll discover how you've been purposely misled, and how dirty little tricks are being used against you.

Once you've learned why the system is stacked against you, I'll then give you a blueprint to begin creating double-digit returns, using the very same strategy the banks use-a strategy they hope you won't find out about.

No matter what kinds of investments you hold, this book will give you a powerful foundation of knowledge and an inside perspective on the financial system. You will be empowered to take control of your money and make better financial and investment decisions. You'll finally be able to make your own investment decisions confidently, without blindly handing your money over to an "expert" and hoping they know what they're doing.

Reading this book is likely the single most important thing you can do to defend and build your wealth, and you will be able to implement what you learn immediately—I guarantee it!

Format: Hardcover
Greg Habstritt''s first book, The RRSP Secret, makes a significant contribution in the realm of personal finance in Canada.

This is not a novel, so I''ll give away the secret: the subject matter deals with investing in Arm''s Length Mortgages. "'Why do you think the biggest financial institutions rely on mortgage financing as their bread-and-butter business? It''s because it is so profitable!"' (70) Sophisticated investors have long used this strategy in their personal portfolios. Greg shows readers how almost anyone can.

Greg describes arm''s length mortgage investing as: stable and predictable; able to consistently produce double-digit returns with controllable risk; not requiring payment of commissions/fees to advisors/''experts''; virtually immune to what markets are doing; and 100% eligible for your RRSP, RESP, RRIF, TFSA, and LIRA. (69)

The Introduction suitably sets the stage and provides a personal connection with the author. Many Free Bonuses are available by registering yourself as an owner of the book on Greg''s [...] website (which also adds you to his growing database and impressive marketing machine).

Part 1, What the Financial Industry Doesn''t Want You To Know, is extraordinarily informative, readable, and intentionally disturbing.

Most readers will recognize themselves in a chapter devoted to investor bias. "'Any time you invest in something you don''t understand, you're gambling, not investing."' (7) Habstritt believes that 'a direct indicator of how successful you will be in life (not just financially) is based on your willingness to be accountable for your results.' (9)

In this section Habstritt reveals how the financial industry really works and how the government uses RRSPs to generate tax revenues.

This book is great for anyone who wants to educate themselves more about investing their money in an easy to understand format and very informative way. It opened my eyes to what is behind the curtain in the financial industry. My result, I will not just hand over my money to a so called expert and hope for the best.
It's also a fantastic read for real estate investors who want to know another way to borrow funds.

Greg's main strategy in this book is arms length mortgages: he details the pros and cons, gives step by step how-to details, shows win-win situations for the borrower and the lender and the best ways to protect each party in different situations.

I could go on and on because there is so much great information in this book. You are doing yourself a great service by reading this book. I am very grateful to have read it.

I have been a real estate investor for a few years and had been hearing about RRSP second mortgages as an advanced strategy. The RRSP Secret has helped me to see RRSPs for what they really are and can be and the incredible value inherent in them if used the right way. This book answered questions I had about the what, where, and why but most importantly, the HOW. Since reading the book I have been able to get one RRSP second from an investor on my own revenue property. I was able to do it with confidence and knowledge in a way that gave my investor confidence in me and the investment. I plan to give this book to potential investors who have RRSPs that are currently underperforming for them. I have moved my own RRSPs into a self-directed account to enable me to take advantage of the strategies in this book.

The RRSP Secret is well written, clear, and informative. The extras are true value added. The topic is well researched and it is obvious that the author is not only an expert on the issues, but is personally invested in this area lending credibility to his perspective. I am thankful I took a chance and ordered this book. I almost feel sorry for the financial industry built on misled and trusting Canadians.

The book clearly explains how this strategy works and all the detailed steps on how to do it.
As an investor, this strategy offers tips on how to maximize your investments and how to best to protect it.
As someone looking at RRSP money to finance your next deal, this book will explain 1-what to expect in the market place 2-all of the benefit of this strategy (win-win for everyone) 3-tips on how to set it up so you and your investors are best protected.
This is a book that will not sit on your shelve as you will go back to constantly refer to it.

I have been looking for a book like this for years, thank you!

The RRSP Secret is a very thorough and enlightening guide to putting your RRSPs to work in ways that put YOU in control, while earning 12-14% returns, on an investment secured by real estate.

The Q&A section at the back is really useful, and addresses many common and not-so-common questions about using the strategies described in the book. Also, the companion web sites contain many invaluable tools to enable those with RRSPs to move forward with the strategies.

The book also goes into the potential downside of this kind of investing, and keeps reminding readers to seek legal counsel, and make sure that they do their due diligence before taking action. You have to know the rules to play the game properly, and have the players in place on your team, to maximize returns and minimize the downside.

A must read for Canadians who are tired of getting lackluster returns, and want to take control of their RRSPs, and other registered investment vehicles.

After reading this book, I am ready to tap into some dead capital, and put it to work making me and my partners consistent, double-digit returns - MUCH better than the 1% a year you can get at the banks, or hoping for strong returns from the stock market.
