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.
