Canadians are facing a multitude of financial challenges right now. Interest rates remain at record-low levels, incomes are languishing, economic growth in Canada is stagnant, and decent market returns are increasingly hard to find. When you also consider that market volatility is expected to rise and that nearly 50% of Canadians don’t understand how much they need to save for their retirement, one thing becomes clear: solid financial advice has never been more important.

“We’ve come a long way from the the market lull back in March ’09 and markets today are not fundamentally cheap any more, they’re expensive,” says Shamez Kassam, an advisor and author of new book Your Money’s Worth: The Essential Guide to Financial Advice for Canadians.
