Your Optimism Impacts Many Choices You Will Make

A fascinating study looks at how your level of optimism affects decisions you make in life. For example, optimistic people typically spend less, save more, smoke less, and plan more.

However, much like red wine, while a little optimism is a good thing, too much optimism can be very dangerous.

Listen to this week’s Science of Investing of investing as Cameron discusses optimism and economic choices with host Leah Walker.

Why Did Canada Get C+ For ‘Mutual Fund Investor Experience’?

Each year, Morningstar releases a report on the Global Fund Investor Experience, which looks at the mutual fund industry in 22 different countries.

Canada’s rating has slipped over the past couple of years, but that rating masks some very good qualities about our mutual fund industry.  Canada received top ratings for how the media reports on the industry, with a focus on fees and alternatives.

However, the rating also masks one area that we did particularly poorly on: fees, expenses, and taxation.

Listen to this week’s Science of Investing of investing as Cameron discusses with Leah Walker what the Morningstar research found.

Support me in the fight against cancer

As you know, Nancy and I contribute the ‘Science of Investing’ interviews weekly on CFRA.

Our chance to get on the show was thanks to the host, Greg Hebert. Greg liked the idea, but thought it would simply be a periodic thing, as he wanted to not show any kind of partiality.

We have been on the show every week now for the past three years. All thanks to Greg.

Sadly, Greg has been unable to be the host for a while now, as he is in a fight for his life. He was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer, and is not expected to live to his 37th birthday next year.

He has been unbelievably strong in his desire to raise awareness and funds in the fight, and I have joined his team to run in the Do-It-For-Dad fight against cancer race on June 19th. 

I have just set up the attached webpage, and all I ask is that you consider making a contribution.

Thank you, very much.
