Time: Your Most Important Planning Tool

Time is one of those daily realities that we usually take for granted. But when it comes to building wealth and managing investments, it is tremendously important. How you view, manage, and interact with "time" could deeply impact your financial success more than any other variable that you personally control.

"At this point last January, I was determined to change my relationship with money forever," says Daniel. This is a New Year's resolution he shared with 69% of Canadians last year1.

"I'd say 100% of my success comes down to working with a financial advisor who offered me a powerful way to get started and keep going."

Financial choices you make today could have a big impact on where you are ten years from now.
