InvestingForMe was developed out of a desire to help individual Canadians gain a greater knowledge, understanding, and control of their savings and investments. Our goal is to provide members with easy access to up-to-date financial market information, education on financial topics, and the necessary financial tools to successfully analyze, monitor, and manage one’s own individual finances.
George Christison, founder of InvestingForMe, spent 26 years in the estates and trusts industry and the full-service brokerage business helping people trying to wade through the complicated business of the investment world. He was often left with the feeling that Canadians could be better served if they just knew more and had access to better resources. InvestingForMe is his solution to that dilemma.
Susan Webster, co-founder of InvestingForMe, has spent over 25 years in marketing and sales. She has specialized in advertising sales and media planning and has witnessed the growth of online marketing. Susan is responsible for developing and implementing all marketing initiatives for InvestingForMe.
The rest of the team at InvestingForMe possess a wide range of hands-on experience from computer programming to internet marketing as well as the technical writing/editing business.
What we’re not is a bunch of 20-somethings embarking on a new adventure. What we are is a group of 50-somethings who are all busy raising children, helping with aging parents, saving for our children’s education, saving for our own retirements, and of course, dealing with the usual day to day financial issues that always seem to pop out of nowhere. We understand personally how saving and investing has become a frustrating and sometimes discouraging experience for Canadians. Together as a team our knowledge base is built from formal education, work experience, and real life. And what InvestingForMe is about is the passion, focus, and diligence in the creation of a strong and valuable resource for Canadian investors.
