This week in investing and personal finance

Is it really Friday already?

It’s been a busy week. Next week I am hosting members of other Canadian securities regulators for our semi-annual education meeting. I am also hosting a discussion among educators about the benefits (and challenges) of using social media in public education. Interesting stuff, and I’ve spent the week preparing and anticipating.

In the meantime, there is a lot of good reading out there. Some of my favourite personal finance articles from the past week follow:

First, let me introduce you to the Canadian Finance Carnival – a new weekly blog carnival hosted by the Canadian Finance Blog, and featuring the best finance and investment writing from Canadian bloggers (or if non-Canadian, the posts are still relevant to Canadians). I am happy to point out that our recent post on RESPs was featured in the first edition.

Over at Ellen Roseman’s On Your Side blog, she asks Were the TFSA rules explained properly? in a look at the sometimes confusing rules regarding Tax Free Savings Accounts.

The Money Smarts Blog has reprinted an older post about the Real Rate of Investment Return.

Boomer & Echo discusses a topic near and dear to me: In her article Women And Finances she urges women to be more involved in their financial lives – and chastises those who don’t think we have the smarts to do so.

There is another great educational piece at Free From Broke, describing What is Asset Allocation?, and why it is important to your investing strategy.

Also educational – but not new – is this post from the Canadian Finance Blog describing Price to Earnings (P/E) Ratios.

And finally, Gail Vaz-Oxlade discusses the sins of personal finance, beginning with Lust. A great read to start your weekend.
