Praise for the previous edition, Portfolio First Aid "I'd categorize Portfolio First Aid as a serious investment primer that has the laudable, if ambitious, goal of raising the sophistication level of the general public." --Jonathan Chevreau, Financial Post "Portfolio First Aid has the right pedigree as an advice tome on healthy investing. Covers the bases of portfolio balance, building wealth, investing for income and managing risk." --The Edmonton Journal The financial meltdown has taken a severe toll on the finances of Canadians, and on their confidence in financial and investment advisors. Canadians need help to learn how to diagnose what is the greatest threat to their long-term financial well-being and to follow a course of treatment to recovery. Financial First Aid for Canadian Investors is for all the battered and bloodied investors whose portfolios are in tatters and who lack direction about what to do next. By examining the lessons to be learned from mistakes made in both good and bad markets, the authors address the common and recurring investment blunders they have witnessed over many years, and offer a clear prescription for how to repair wounded portfolios.
