Dear reader,
The World Cup soccer, Wimbledon, BP oil spill and the G20 marks the start of our summer this year and what a start its been. Controversy reigns and opinions are varied, which seems to be our new reality. The question is whether or not we can escape the woes of the world?

Our summer newsletter provides some perspective to the current stock market turmoil, how best to plan for a happy retirement, the problem with mortgage insurance and why you should take more interest in your group plan at the office.

Enjoy and happy summer,

TriDelta Financial

What's up with the markets?
Market uncertainty continues.

We asked one of our lead portfolio managers, Bruce Campbell, to provide perspective:

Why you should pay more attention to your group RRSP
Meredith Brown wanted to make sure that her company had the best group RSP possible.

As vice-president of human resources and national operations for Coinamatic, she guided her company through a review of its plan options early last year that led Coinamatic to switch providers. "We discovered that there were significant advantages available, such as broader investment choice and significantly lower management fees," Ms. Brown said. "We also now have greater employee support and planning advice with our new providers."
