Very conservative investment approach
on September 21, 2009
I love to invest in equities, and have been generating an average of a 25% return this year, but I bought this book to see the other extreme. With the crash of 2008, a lot of people will think a 4-5% return is pretty decent now compared to the 40% loss last year. This book suits investors 55 and over, as it avoids the risks of the stock market in favor of safe guaranteed investments like GICs and government bonds. There is good advice on CPP and how to get the best out of that, but otherwise most younger investors like myself will find this approach too boring, too safe.
