Product Description

Product Description

From Canada’s leading expert on consumer banking, this easy-to-read, indispensable book will help you keep your hard-earned money working for you.

Canadians are savvy consumers of everything – except financial products. We comparison shop for new cars and new clothes, but when it comes to our money, most of us passively hand it over to banks and other institutions. The result? Our earnings languish in bank accounts that pay out zero interest while raining down fees, or in mutual funds that make more money for the people running them than for investors.

This book is the remedy: written especially for Canadians, it is the definitive guide to getting the best possible deal on everything from savings accounts to mortgages to RRSPs. Rob Carrick puts the key information in the reader’s hands through comparison charts, rankings and easy-to-follow tables, as well as good old-fashioned advice. He explains how to construct a banking profile, where to find the best bargains in financial services, how online banking and investing is changing everything, and much more.

This book shows how to get the best while paying the least, so you can use your money for the things you really want and need.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of the information in this book is obtainable on your own but I appreciated it being all in one place. It's specific to Canada which is nice. Plenty of strategies on how to minimize your banking expenses. Nothing that will change your life, but it's all good to know as EVERY little bit helps. I think this would be a particularly good gift for a college student or a new graduate. Maybe for an older adult who's stuck in that 'MY bank' mentality.

This book is valuable for new immigrants to Canada. It arms one with so much must-know information, it is confidence-building. The writer gets to the point quickly and tells the real score on many financial products and services. It reads easy. Highly recommended.

Useless information, sounds like it was written by a ten year old. Save your money, very very basic information. Any 18 year old would already know all of this info. So don't waste your money like I did.
