Dear reader,

As the pace of our lives eases into the summer slowdown, so too it seems has the investment market. Our worries about a total economic bust are also behind us although much repair work is still needed.

Our jam packed summer issue addresses a number of ideas that you may wish to ponder as you enjoy what summer offers.

Enjoy and be well,

TriDelta Financial

The TriDelta Difference

I was chatting to a family member recently who mentioned that he was refinancing his mortgage given my advice on rates bottoming. Well to my surprise he was not aware that we offered this service.

We unfortunately assume that family, friends and clients know all about us, but this simply isn't the case, so we decided to communicate better.

We have a rather unique business model and continue to expand our services. Please take five minutes to view our latest video and feel free to call us about your investments, insurance, mortgages, estate planning or even managing the group RRSP of your employer.

Time is still right to build a high income portfolio

Markets have enjoyed a surge recently, but many good dividend- yielding stocks and corporate bonds are still undervalued in our opinion.

We recommended a high-yielding portfolio to Globe and Mail readers in November last year in the midst of the market turmoil. G&M reporter, Rob Carrick chats to TriDelta Financial President, Ted Rechtshaffen and revisits this recommendation.

People typically purchase life insurance to accompany a life altering event:

  • the birth of a child
  • the purchase of a home
  • the purchase of a business
  • the loss of someone close or finding out someone you know was diagnosed with an illness

Mutual Fund Portfolios aren't as safe as most believe

Mutual funds carry many risks and hidden costs that you need to understand. Did you know about 'portfolio manager mandates'? This seemingly small aspect is reason enough to consider alternatives to mutual funds.

Those who own mutual funds typically believe they are well positioned for 'long-term' growth. What most of them simply are not aware of are the many risks associated with mutual funds, which understandably are seldom mentioned. This lack of knowledge provides investors with a false sense of comfort.
