Why did you start Evermore?
It bothered me that, despite all the advancements in investment products over the past several decades, there still didn’t exist a low-fee investment vehicle designed for retirement, arguably the largest “purchase” for most people. I was also familiar with target date funds, which were designed specifically for retirement in or around a given year, but were available only via certain group RRSP plans or as high-fee mutual funds. It became obvious that target date ETFs were the low-cost all-in-one retirement solution that most Canadians would find easy to understand and even easier to implement. And when you can help people better secure their financial future, that doesn’t just make for good business, that’s a significant social good, too.
