Starting Out

If you are just starting out, it’s easy to get off on the wrong foot. Being late for school will get you detention, but being late for a bill will give you a much bigger headache.

Reaching adulthood means a lot of things: being able to sign contracts, voting, and getting tons of credit card offers in the mail. With minimum payments being as low as 1% of the total balance, it can seem like you have found the land of milk and honey once and for all.

For many people, it takes them a lifetime to escape the trappings of credit card debt. Of course, credit cards are not the only thing that determine your credit score, but they are usually the largest pitfall for most people. For people who struggle with credit card debt, most of them don't get past those hurdles until they reach their fifties.

Will you buck the trend?

Instead of getting taken by credit card companies, your money can be working for you with an investment plan. When you are young, the future can seem far away, but a few dollars can make a bigger difference than you realize. Just $50 per month can become $7,900 in 10 years with a modest 5% annual rate of return. If you run the numbers again with a $500 per month contribution, you get $79,000. However, if you put it off for 5 years, you are only left with $35,000. That’s the price of procrastination.

Tax Free Savings Account

A WORD FROM OUR CLIENTS

  • There are no words I can express how grateful I am having Chan working for me. I trust him explicitly as his knowledge and caring personality has proven itself again and again over the years. I never hesitate for a moment to refer my family and friends. None have been anything but pleased.

  • It has been a few years I know Chan Yin as my Financial Advisor. He is very professional and hard to deliver the best for your investments.

  • What can I say about Better Financial? How about they are better than just a financial Advisor in my experience.

    I've been a long standing client of Chan Yin and his team for over 15 years and it's not only what they have done for me financially, it's the personal approach that's kept me with such an incredible and caring company. They have met and exceeded all my goals and have always been there for me. I can't say enough about how professional and kind hearted the team at Better Financial are.

    I have recommended them to all my friends and family and no one has ever been disappointed. Thank you again for all you have done and do for me.

  • Our friends who had previously worked with Chan referred us for our first home purchase. We weren't experienced in this area and didn’t want to make a mistake. Chan was so helpful in guiding us through the process of getting our first mortgage. He also got us a better rate than what we found on our own. His warm and genuine personality inspired trust. This was important for us; we had a good experience and were pleased with the result.

  • We have been working with Chan for a number of years and have found him to provide clear and concise advice in a highly professional manner. He has spent time understanding us, where we are coming from and our goals; has provided clarity on our existing financial planning and has provided us with a clear strategy as to how we achieve the goals that we have.

  • We have been referring clients to Chan for a number of years now. He has always provided them with sound advice and they appreciate his friendly yet professional manner. Over the years he has earned my trust and I now have every confidence that any client I refer to him will receive the best possible service.
