Trust key for spouses working with advisors

Most Canadian couples are comfortable in talking with each other about their finances, according to a recent survey released by Toronto-based Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada). But for financial success its important that they are equally open to talking with a financial advisor. “Many individuals are sometimes not getting the [financial] help they need,” says Nicholas Cheung, director, CPA Canada. “It’s important that, first, [Canadians] are getting the help [they] need and preferably if [they] can work with the same advisor.” Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Fiona Collie Related news Keywords Couples,  Financial planning “Light planning” could expand access to financial advice Survey results of the CPA Canada 2013 Spouse/Partner Financial Survey found that 96% of respondents feel comfortable talking about financial matters with their spouse or partners. Furthermore, 92% said they trusted money decisions made by their significant others. In terms of the division of financial decisions, 85% of respondents said they made major purchase decisions together, while 58% said creating a household budget was a joint effort. Fifty-six per cent of respondents said they handled financial investments with their spouses. Ideally, as most clients are making financial decisions together they should also work with a financial advisor jointly, according to Cheung. “It would be great if both spouses were working with a particular advisor,” he says. “[Because] family plans generally need to be coordinated in terms of pulling all their assets together and figuring out the best way forward.” However, there may be cases in which clients either prefer to work with a separate advisor or to be less involved with investment decisions. In such cases, it’s still important that clients at least keep any involved advisors aware of their thoughts. Says Cheung: “It certainly helps the advisor to understand the goals, and concerns and the questions that come from the other spouse.” Survey results were gathered from 634 telephone interviews of adult Canadians with a partner or spouse living in their household conducted by Harris/Decima between Oct. 10, 2013 to Oct. 16, 2013.

RBC launches retirement portfolios

(RBCGAM) has launched a lineup of retirement portfolios whose asset allocation is based on investors’ specific retirement dates. Seven of the eight new RBC Retirement Portfolios are designed for investors who believe they will retire in one of the following years: 2020, 2025, 2030, 2035, 2040, 2045 and 2050. The timeline determines the asset allocation within each product. For example, an RBC Retirement 2050 Portfolio has a lower allocation to equities, as the need for growth is balanced with the need to manage volatility expectations for investors in their early saving years, according to the firm’s website. The exposure to equities is increased in RBC Retirement Portfolios 2045, 2040, 2035 and 2030, for investors in their peak earning years. RBC Retirement Portfolios 2025 and 2020 take on a decreased level of risk for investors who will likely see retirement within the next decade. The final portfolio, RBC Retirement Income Solution, is designed for retirees who require a tax-efficient cash flow. The portfolios are available in five different series.

TWU withdraws from farcical NSW Taskforce over silencing of rider exploitation

first_imgTWU withdraws from farcical NSW Taskforce over silencing of rider exploitation The Transport Workers’ Union and riders have formally withdrawn from the NSW Food Delivery Rider Taskforce over its sustained refusal to discuss regulation or tackle the root causes of high rider deaths and injuries, such as economic pressures that force riders to work dangerously and fatigued.The announcement of the Taskforce followed the tragic deaths of five food delivery riders in just two months last year, four of which occurred in Sydney. However, the Taskforce has continuously silenced workers’ concerns about exploitation and insisted that regulatory change is ‘beyond scope’. The TWU can only conclude that the Taskforce was designed by the NSW Government as a front to divert attention away from the global push for regulation.The withdrawal from the TWU and its rider members means there will be no worker representation at the final roundtable next week during which the Taskforce will present its Industry Action Plan (IAP).In a letter to the Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, the TWU highlighted its concern that three core issues raised by workers have been removed from the final draft of the IAP:– Any mention of regulatory change;– Fatigue rate statistics that were included in earlier drafts; and– Research concerning the effects of low earnings on dangerous risk-taking behaviour.The NSW Government’s own report from November 2020 lists pay as the second highest risk factor causing food delivery riders to work unsafely, yet workers were silenced from raising concerns about their pay at Taskforce roundtables and feedback to the IAP.TWU National Secretary Michael Kaine said there is no other conclusion to draw than that the Taskforce intends to “absolve companies from addressing serious risk hazards and the government from addressing legislative gaps.”“A Taskforce set up to tackle the tragic deaths of riders that has continuously silenced workers’ key concerns for their safety is not worthy of our support. The NSW Government’s intention is to distract from and undermine the push for regulatory change happening around the world, letting the government off the hook and giving a free pass to food delivery companies.“Lives won’t be saved by safety videos and piecemeal offerings of PPE, but more lives will be taken by the continuous slashing of rates and threat of the sack if riders don’t keep up with unrealistic timeframes.“It is deeply unsettling how little the NSW Government cares that riders are being slaughtered on our roads. This is just a PR hazard that they want put to bed. The TWU will not support their quest to shut out riders’ concerns or solutions,” said Kaine.The TWU has taken several cases against gig economy companies, including a former case Uber rushed to settle after Federal Court Judges savaged its business model, and two current cases for unfair sacking and gross underpayment against Deliveroo.Surveys have shown:– Food delivery riders earn as little as $5 per delivery– 70% say they are struggling to pay bills and buy food– More than one in three has been injured on the job, with the vast majority (80%) receiving no support from their company /Public Release.

CU-Boulder Summer Day Camp Targets Denver High School And Middle-Schoolers For High-Tech Fun

first_img Published: June 9, 2003 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail High school and middle school students from the Denver Public School’s Computer Magnet Program will be attending camp at CU-Boulder this summer. But instead of swimming, playing football or tossing a Frisbee, they’ll be shooting their own video movies, making their own digital music and burning their own CDs and DVDs. DigitalCUrrents Summer Day Camp runs from Monday, June 9, through Friday, June 27, at the University of Colorado at Boulder. DigitalCUrrents is a partnership between CU-Boulder’s ATLAS technology program and the DPS Computer Magnet Program. Its focus is to excite Denver middle school students about technology so that they might enroll in technology courses in high school and pursue technology disciplines in college. Computer Magnet Program students enroll in 12 classes in high school focusing on Web design, computer technician skills and software design skills. “We’re especially interested in attracting women and students who might become first-generation college students because of their low representation in the technology-fluent work force,” said Lucy Sanders, CU-Boulder’s executive in residence for ATLAS. “ATLAS provides a much needed bridge between information technology and communities that are less commonly partnered with technology.” During the first week of DigitalCUrrents Summer Day Camp, eight high school students will spend time on the CU-Boulder campus working with ATLAS’ Technology Arts and Media students on the design of an advertising video and original musical sound track, using state-of-the-art media tools. The second week shifts to North High School in Denver, where the same students will teach 25 middle school students the project that they’ve just completed. During the third week of camp, the high school students will create a recruiting video describing the camp itself, designed to attract students to the Computer Magnet Program. According to Gary Goodnight, coordinator for CMP, “Everyone knows that teaching something is the best way to learn it. DigitalCUrrents gives high school technology students the experience of teaching in the field of their passion.” ATLAS, the Alliance for Technology, Learning and Society, is CU-Boulder’s campus-wide initiative that prepares students and faculty for lives and leadership careers in the networked information age.
