(December 4, 2002) RRSP season can be stressful for investors and advisors, so the “RRSP Survival Guide” in the December edition of Advisor’s Edge offers ideas on how advisors can beat the stress and tension.

The cover story of the December “RRSP Survival Guide” takes a personal approach to RRSP season. “We took a look at how one advisor handles RRSP season,” explained Deanne Gage, managing editor of Advisor’s Edge.

The advisor in question oversees a team of four at Canaccord Capital in Waterloo, Ontario.

    “She and her team plan to set aside even more time this season to go through clients’ portfolios just because it is a bear market and people are disgruntled,” added Gage.
