Unlocking your financial power

We’ve all heard the expression “women are a force to be reckoned with”, and this cannot be more true than when it comes to wealth! Women are emerging as a dominant force in the market. It is estimated that by the end of this decade women will control about 50% of the wealth in Canada!1 It is predicted that at some point in their lifetime, 90% of women will be required to play the role of sole financial decision maker.2 This rising economic power of women is probably one of the most significant economic shifts in recent decades.

Join us for this virtual event, presented by women, for women.  You will learn:

  • The potential differences between the financial needs of men and women

  • Female life expectancy and the impact on the financial plan

  • The commonality and differences in investment approaches and risk tolerance

  • Differing needs based on age demographics

  • How emotions play a role in investment decisions

  • How to build a more secure financial future for you and your family

The accredited investor exemption

Who qualifies as an accredited investor?

  • An individual who, alone or together with a spouse, owns financial assets worth more than $1 million before taxes but net of related liabilities or
  • An individual, who alone or together with a spouse, has net assets of at least $5,000,000.
  • An individual whose net income before taxes exceeded $200,000 in both of the last two years and who expects to maintain at least the same level of income this year; or
  • An individual whose net income before taxes, combined with that of a spouse, exceeded $300,000 in both of the last two years and who expects to maintain at least the same level of income this year
  • An individual who currently is, or once was, a registered adviser or dealer, other than a limited market dealer

The law assumes that accredited investors do not need the protections offered by a prospectus because they can:
(a) get and analyze the information needed to assess an investment without a prospectus; and
(b) handle the loss of their entire investment, if things go wrong.

Note that an accredited investor must purchase the securities as "principal." This means the investor must be purchasing for him or herself, rather than for another person.
