Most Canadians are well aware of the value of investing in your RRSP’s every year. But, are your RRSP investments working at their full potential? Are you certain that the performance of your RRSP investments will allow you to achieve your retirement goals?
Most Canadians are satisfied to have their RRSP investment sit in various mutual funds earning relatively low rates of return. There are alternative strategies available that can help accelerate your earnings and help ensure you enjoy the retirement you have dreamt about.
What about investing your RRSP funds in real estate? While there are certain rules you must follow, you can use your registered funds to invest real estate. The simple form is through the creation of a self-directed investment account. Through a self directed account, you can expand the opportunities to invest your RRSP’s, well beyond the traditional mutual funds, stocks or bonds.
