The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC) on Tuesday launched its new Investor Centre website, with expanded content and features to help Canadians navigate their financial journeys.
"IFIC's new Investor Centre reflects the industry's commitment to help investors make informed choices," says Paul Bourqe, IFIC president and CEO, in a statement.
"Informed investors make better decisions, are more disciplined about sticking with their investment plans, and have better quality conversations with their advisors."
In addition to a wide range of articles on saving and investing, the Investor Centre contains a new Life Stages section with articles that are specifically geared to people at different points in life. Topics include: starting a business, preparing for the arrival of a new child, changing jobs, caring for a loved one, converting RRSPs to RRIFs, planning your estate and much more.
"Canadians are faced with important financial decisions at every stage of life," Bourque adds. "Our new Investor Centre provides something for everyone – from students and young adults, to people in their working years and those who have retired."
Articles will guide readers who want to dig deeper to relevant information from federal and provincial governments, regulators and financial literacy groups to complement and supplement IFIC's insights and tips.
The Investor Centre is enabled for tablet and smartphone use and has accessibility features to address the needs of people with visual and hearing impairments.
