A financial coach is your personal financial guide
You have questions about your money and you want to feel more in control of your finances. Who do you turn to? It can be hard to know who you can trust for unbiased advice.
I'm Anita, a personal finance and investing expert and financial coach who loves talking about money. I believe that financial advice should be easy to understand, unbiased, and affordable.
I am a former banker and stock market analyst. For 25 years I was immersed in the world of finance. I was in the thick of financial markets, spending most of my career analyzing companies, picking stocks and managing mutual funds. I’ve seen how the financial industry works from the inside.
What’s the biggest takeaway from my Bay Street career?
Money has become too complicated.
All of the financial news, blogs, chat forums, Instagram posts, and TikTok videos along with the vast array of financial products has left people confused and overwhelmed. There is so much information that it’s hard to know what to do.
I believe that feeling in control of your finances is achievable for everyone. Bring it back to basics. Focus on the most important aspects of your financial life. Keep your investments simple.
Get in touch with me to learn more about how I can work with you to plan, save and invest, giving you financial confidence.
