The Value of an Advice+ Plan

Although it’s impossible to predict when the next upward or downward spike in the market will happen, having a financial plan can help you ride out the volatility. A Scotiabank advisor can provide valuable perspective and help you stay focused and on track to meeting your long-term goals.

The Big Picture

Going as far back as the 1930s, markets have had their fair share of ups and downs, with political, economic and financial events driving short-term movements. During this time, investors have had many excuses for not investing.  However, by maintaining a long-term perspective, you can let time work to your advantage.

Take the guesswork out of when to invest

Instead of fearing a market correction, consider viewing it as a buying opportunity. Investing in regular increments through a Pre-Authorized Contribution (PAC) plan not only helps to eliminate the guess work of when to buy, it’s a convenient and simple way to save without even thinking about it.

Investing, simplified

Building and managing an investment portfolio is more challenging than ever. Scotia Portfolio Solutions take the complexity out of investing, offering simplicity and convenience in a single, investment solution.
