My name is Colin Peters and I'm 23 years old. I have worked at Ontario's largest Credit Union since the age of 18. I also completed my undergrad in 2012, and am in the process of completing a Post-Grad in Public Relations.
Since starting my career over 5 years ago, I have had the opportunity to work in a finance environment working with financial advisors (usually more than twice my age ;)). I've also done a lot of self-investing including investing in mutual funds, bonds, and stocks. Of course, since I work at a Credit Union, I have thorough knowledge of all typical financial institution products like demands accounts, GICs, and how RRSPs and TFSAs associate with these products.
Through my experience, I have learned a lot. I thought it would be pretty simple, but there are a lot of random quirks that would be good to know that I have had to learn on the way (and sometimes the hard way). This blog is a place where I will discuss the basics, and not so basic tips for investing. Since I'm still in my early 20s, many of my posts will relate more to "new investors" that are just starting out.
I hope you enjoy! I will answer any questions you have for me!
