In our fourth segment of our “Let’s Invest” series’ with Jean-Paul Bureaud, executive director of FAIR Canada, we stay on the self-investing side with DIY – do-it-yourself investing. Bureaud goes over the pros and cons of DIY investing, the influence of social media, determining whether DIY is right for you and how “robo-advisors” might provide some investing advice.
