Early last week a U.S. magazine for financial advisors ran down its list of the 10 best bloggers in America. WP reached out to a well-known Canadian finance blogger for his thoughts on some of this country’s best. Were you on the list?
Alberta financial planner Robb Engen and his mom have been writing a financial blog called Boomer & Echo for over a decade. He knows a thing or two about writing having done double-duty for a long time with the Toronto Star.
Here are Robb’s thoughts. [Note: WP asked Robb to include his blog.]
Dan Bortolotti - Author of the Canadian Couch Potato blog as well as The MoneySense Guide to the Perfect Portfolio, Dan is now a full-time investment advisor with PWL Capital in Toronto. His couch potato strategy has a cult-like following amongst bloggers and on social networking websites like Reddit.
Sandi Martin - This former banker turned advice-only financial planner is a thought-leader in the ever changing financial planning landscape.
Active on every social media site, Sandi moderates the Google+ Canadian Personal Finance online community, co-hosts the Because Money podcast, and writes for several personal finance sites, including her own blog.
John Robertson - An investment coach at Robertson Investment Services, and the author of The Value of Simple, John Robertson uses plain language to teach everyday Canadians how to set up a low-cost portfolio of index funds.
Justin Bender - A portfolio manager with PWL Capital, Justin is a CFA Charterholder and a CFP Professional. His blog, Canadian Portfolio Manager, was created to educate do-it-yourself investors and advisors alike.
