Share your investing wisdom: fixed income

You could win a copy of MoneySense’s new retirement guide by sharing your investing tips.



Online only.


Maybe you used to be an equity investor, but you got pummelled and now you’d sooner slide down a cheese grater than buy another stock. Or perhaps you’re a diligent saver who has amassed a comfortable nest egg, and you can get by just fine with risk-free returns of less than 5%. Whatever your profile, you can fund a comfortable retirement without investing in stocks. But you’ll likely have to get away from savings accounts, money market funds and Canada Savings Bonds—those dreary investments can’t even keep up with inflation.

What are your tips for fixed-income investing? We invite you to share one or two with our readers in the comments field below. The person with the best tip will get a copy of MoneySense’s new retirement book, Guide to Retiring Wealthy, when it comes out in mid-October. For the full story on investment strategies, pick up a copy of the September/October 2010 issue of MoneySense, on newsstands now.

  2. Everybody needs a portion of wealth in a fixed income or low risk investment, just never put too much into one catergory… Anyway, my tips is: Make sure to take out all the interest return from your bonds or GICs because the point of fixed income investments is really to preserve capital, if the interest return is kept and re-invested, the tax on all that return could be huge.

  17. know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.


  18. I’m curious if you ever have problems with what people post? The internet never used to be like that, although it seems to be changing for the better. Do you agree?

  36. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little homework on this. And he actually bought me dinner due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your web page.
