Season 5, Episode 1
Forced isolation and financial opportunities.
Fear. Anxiety. Boredom. Exhaustion. The feelings provoked by the coronavirus pandemic cover a broad spectrum for Canadians of all ages, households, and socio-economic situations. But the forced isolation due to COVID-19 has also presented everyone from Millennials to retirees with an opportunity to reflect on things we perhaps tended to ignore…back when the world was what we now wistfully refer to as “normal”.
These things include our personal financial security, both immediately (“Can I pay the rent next month?”) and in the longer-term (“How will I ever be able to afford retirement?”).
Christine Ibbotson is a Licensed Financial Advisor and the author of an e-book available on the Nimbus website entitled “Don’t Panic: How to Manage Your Finances — and Financial Anxieties — During and After Coronavirus”.
