Launched in 2010, InvestingForMe was developed out of a desire to help individual Canadians gain a greater knowledge, understanding, and control of their savings and investments. My goal is to provide visitors 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 their individual savings and investments.
George Christison, founder of InvestingForMe, spent over 25 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.
