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!

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
I am one of the millions of people that dreads getting the twice yearly statements because the picture is one of small gains and large fees( MER's are deducted automatically and are not shown on the statement - I knew this but somehow thought that's what we all have to put up with - WRONG !)
Do yourself a favour and grab a copy of this book, the strategies are not rocket science, they are legal and are overseen by the CRA. I have to let my financial advisor know in the next week or two that I will be changing to self-directed RRSP's he won't like it and I remember that this is my money, my future and I finally have hope that I can build a decent retirement pot for myself.
