Preet from WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo is on a roll with quality content. The article that caught my eye this week was "The IPP" article. I had no idea that an individual could setup a defined benefit plan without company backing. It appears that the returns from an IPP surpasses that of an RRSP because of the extra contribution space given to those who qualify.
I've read a lot about QTrade (not to be confused with Questrade) and their award winning customer service. I haven't written about them because I don't personally have any experience with them. Besides, they seem a little expensive with their $19.99 trades. Canadian Capitalist has interviewed a QTrade client about his experiences with the discount brokerage. If you haven't already, you can read my Canadian Discount Brokerage Comparison here.
