8 Ways to Achieve Financial Independence

Everyone wants to reach financial independence, and there are some smart—and proven—ways you can achieve it.


1. Save While You Pay Off Debt.

Saving is a good idea but there are many variables to consider. Talk to an advisor to do the math.


2. Minimize Tax Wherever You Can.

The government provides huge incentives to save and invest. Take full advantage of registered plans like an RRSP, TFSA and RESP, and consider incorporation for further tax-efficiency.


3. Keep Emotions Out of Investment Decisions.

Market volatility is bound to elicit feelings of euphoria or discouragement. It’s natural to feel these emotions, but not such a good idea to act on them. Keep your eye on your long-term goals.


4. Beware of Fees.

Fees can seriously erode your investment returns. With preferred management fees and no advisor commissions, you can save with CDSPI Funds. Plus, there are no front or back-end loads.


5. Diversify to Decrease Risk.

It’s never a good idea to put too many eggs in one basket. CDSPI’s family of funds holds a full range of assets in different classes to help keep your portfolio balanced.


6. Get Professional Advice.

Your financial future is too important to be left to chance. An Investment Planning Advisor from CDSPI Advisory Services Inc. can create a robust, complimentary financial plan for you and your spouse.


7. Choose the Right Investments.
