Thanks for stumbling upon Budget on a Budget! Here’s a little about me – My name is Alex, and I am a Canadian living with my lovely girlfriend in a small city in Ontario. My younger brother and I were born and raised in a small town in Northern Ontario.
I had always been interested in finance, even at a young age. My mom is a retired banker, so she had us managing our finances at quite an early age. My first investment product was a TFSA with TD Direct Investing which I opened at the minimum age of 18, and my passion for finance grew from there. Since then, I became an active trader, sometimes making 100’s of dollars in a matter of seconds (don’t try this at home, kids).
Moving on from there, I accepted a position at a Global Financial Institution, (which I am thankful for) and I left my day-trading behind me. I now focus on lower risk wealth-building strategies. I am also currently a student, working my way towards the CFP® (Certified Financial Planner) designation. My goal for this blog is to help educate those interested in personal finance and investing.
