Another new guy here. 34 years old, finance executive in the GTA. Pretty good investment knowledge. Have known about the site for some time and finally thought I should join and become an active poster. Hopefully I can add some value and learn a few things as well.

New From Nova Scotia
Hi. I'm a retired public servant, just having retired at the end of June. I'm 63 and have 27 years of service with the federal government. Just awaiting my first pension cheque now.
With the present budget restraints, workforce adjustment and affected letters going out to federal employees, I couldn't have found a better time to get out of the public service. Many of my former co-workers are quite envious of me as they now work in a worrysome environment, not knowing what their future holds as federal employees.
Being newly retired, I stumbled upon this forum while searching for retirement information and statistics. I will probably have questions and I just want to say hello and thanks for the opportunity to participate..

I'm 22 years old, in my fourth year of electrical engineering @ university of Waterloo. I'm just getting started with investing and am interested in learning from the community here and sharing ideas, especially with regards to buying/selling options.

Hello, I'm a 26 year old electrical engineer in Manitoba. Just started out with investing last year, and now I've been planning to move into some couch potato index funds away from the mutual funds I'm currently in.

I found this site through Million Dollar Journey after searching for investment options. I'm a 24 year old electrical engeering student from Waterloo and I'm just starting my investment strategy. I'm sure I'll have some questions in the future!

I've been reading these forums for some time, now. I made the jump and finally registered! I invest with a very passive couch potato strategy. I'm always looking to learn new things.

As a very new member I figured this was a good place to start. I am a Sales Director for one of Canada's big 4 Insurance companies and work with advisors and their clients for product solutions to Financial Planning needs. I also am a licensed CFP and have a small group of my own clients that I do mainly insurance work with. I've been in the business for about 16 years and thoroughly enjoy the problem solving and people/relationship side of the business. I dont blog or write publicly anywhere, although I am thinking about changing that as soon as I figure out what this "free time" thing is people keep mentioning to me I look forward to learning and contributing.
