Cash and Worry: What Canadian Investors Really Think – and Do11:45am-1:30pm | The Marriott Hotel - 525 Bay St, Toronto
Canadian investors have been riding a wave of good returns in fixed income and equities over the past five years, but as interest rates are set to rise and stocks looks at least fully valued, how well-prepared – and well-informed – are they? Are their financial goals and retirement plans realistic, and are they taking the short-term actions that will help them get there?
Leveraging the results of the BlackRock Global Investor Pulse survey – the largest survey of investor attitudes and behaviours in the world – Noel Archard will investigate the realities and concerns of Canadian investors today, the challenges they face in reaching their long-term financial goals, and the implications for the investment industry and policymakers.
