An interview with a financial planner (with special guest, Janea Dieno)

Are you curious about what a financial advisor does, and whether you need one?
I stumbled across Janea a number of years ago following my divorce.  I was feeling a bit scared, and financially unprepared for my new life.  Lawyers typically do not have a built-in pension plan/investment plan through work - and we are really good at giving advice to our clients about financial stability, but often forget to implement this advice for ourselves.  I am so grateful that I got to know Janea and now have her as a part of my personal financial team.  

Janea and I have something in common.  We both believe that clients need to be empowered to make financial decisions for themselves - and that discussions about tax and finances do not always have to be so complicated!  In this episode, we let you eavesdrop on our conversation - we will be exploring what it means to be a financial planner (8:30), how to choose a planner that is right for you, and will discuss the difference between an RRSP, a TFSA, and a non-registered account, including how these various investment vehicles are taxed (36:27).  Finally, we explore the exciting world of "segregated funds" (44:15).  Want to have something smart to say on your next Zoom call with friends?  Then, you need to listen to this episode!
