  • Excellent Andrew. In my experience travelling around a little, a financial planner always structures his/her advice with a bias towards the country they are in when there is huge, lower risk opportunities, in other countries, and the exchange can play in your favour, especially if you're investing with strong Canadian $'s

  34. 34. Risk vs Uncertainty 34Risk is present when future events occur withmeasurable probabilityUncertainty is present when the likelihood of futureevents is indefinite or incalculable© Andrew Waitman 2013 06/03/2013
  35. 35. Risk and Uncertainty 35 Risk has an unknown outcome. But we know what the underlying outcome distribution looks like. Uncertainty also implies an unknown outcome. But we dont know what the underlying distribution looks like. So games of chance like roulette or blackjack are risky, while the outcome of a war is uncertain. Objective probability is the basis for risk, while subjective probability underlies uncertainty.© Andrew Waitman 2013 06/03/2013
  36. 36. Objective vs Subjective probability 36Subjective probabilities differ from person to person. Because theprobability is subjective, it contains a high degree of personal bias.An example of subjective probability could be asking New York Yankeesfans, before the baseball season starts, the chances of New York winningthe world series.Objective probability is the probability that an event will occur based ananalysis in which each measure is based on a recordedobservation, rather than a subjective estimate. Objective probabilities area more accurate way to determine probabilities than observations basedon subjective measures, such as personal estimates.© Andrew Waitman 2013 06/03/2013

  40. 40. Financial Planners 40  Rarely add value or are worth what they charge…  But if you want to pay no attention to your savings…they will pay slightly more attention to your savings ‗cause it‘s their job!  Unless you have substantial assets, complex context (Insurance, Tax, Homes, Hold Co) etc. or have absolutely no time to watch your savings strategy, I would advise against using FPs.  They are a tax on your savings above inflation and taxes.© Andrew Waitman 2013 06/03/2013
