Many books and articles have been published by the investment industry but few books are written by the investors. Gerry is an engineer who retired from Teck Resources 15 years ago. During his retirement, he completed financial courses and intensively studied the world of investing. As defined-benefit pension plans are increasingly being replaced by defined-contribution plans, more pensioners will need to manage their hard-earned savings or have an advisor do it for them, at a fee of course. Regardless which route you prefer, this book will surely increase your financial literacy, a very important asset if you will heavily rely on your investments during your retirement years. No one cares more about your money than you do. Gerry says 'you don't have to become a financial expert to manage your investments. It's not rocket science'. If you lack the confidence and prefer to continue working with an advisor, the book will show you how to pick one.
