How to Pay Less and Save More For Yourself

The Essential Consumer Guide to Canadian Banking and Investing

Publisher: Doubleday Canada
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.
