I am a still-recovering 🙂 former award-winning advertising writer and creative director who packed up his pen and laptop in early 2013 and made the move to Tangerine to help Canadians discover lower fee index investing. As you may know, Canadians pay some of the highest fees in the world.
It was not work but they paid me anyway. In June of 2018 I left the job I loved to start Cut The Crap Investing. That allowed me to help investors on a broader scale with the ability to cover ETFs, Robo Advisors and simple stock portfolio strategies.
I was quickly recognized as a champion and cheerleader for Canadian ETFs. From 2019 I have been a panelist for MoneySense ETF All Stars. Here’s the Best ETFs for 2021 edition.
I also write and update the ultimate Canadian Couch Potato series for MoneySense.
I contribute to the Tangerine forward thinking blog.
Canadians can increase their wealth two-fold, three-fold or more by investing in a sensible low fee manner.
Please help spread the word – send your friends and family and coworkers the cutthecrapinvesting link, you might change a life or two. I am happy to help, for karma.
Thanks for stopping by.
Canada – it’s time to cut the crap investing.
