If you’re anything like me, then you have financial and bank accounts at multiple locations. Keeping track of all of these accounts can be cumbersome and annoying. Personal Capital lets you keep track of all of your accounts in one place, making it easy to track your net worth and investments. But is Personal Capital available in Canada? And if not, what is the best Canadian alternative?
What is Personal Capital?
Personal Capital is a wealth management service that also offers a free financial dashboard. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Carlos, California, Personal Capital currently has over 2 million users. But it’s important to note that their users primarily take advantage of the free financial dashboard.

If you’re a retiree or near-retiree relying on GICs for your fixed-income investments, no doubt you’re facing GIC sticker shock as previously invested GICs are reaching maturity. If before you were getting 2% to 3% on 2-, 3-, 4- or 5-year GICs, you may be shocked to discover you’ll be lucky to get 1%—and only then if, instead of taking the GIC your brokerage suggests, you fight for a better offer. Committing to a 5-year term may gain you only 0.5% or so, depending on the provider.
Nor will matters improve any time soon. The Federal Reserve, Bank of Canada and other central banks have suggested interest rates will stay “lower for longer.” The Fed, in particular, has indicated rates are unlikely to rise for at least three years.
This is classic “financial repression” and unfair to seniors who saved all their lives and don’t wish to take on the full risks of stock investments at this time in their lives. Adrian Mastracci, portfolio manager for Vancouver-based Lycos Asset Management Inc…

Awesome new bonus on Canada's Top Travel Rewards Credit Card - Up to 45,000 bonus points for the American Express Cobalt CardThe overall best travel rewards credit card in Canada (and in fact a pretty strong cash back card in its own right) just became that much more valuable if you don’t have it in your wallet yet. The card is the American Express Cobalt Card and ever since it launched late in 2017 it has been the number one card in Canada. There are several reasons for this but it primarily comes down to the card earning 5x points on eats and drinks (it was one of the first cards to award that many points on purchases) but also providing good redemption value for those 5x points and even the rest of the points the card earns a 2x and 1x. On top of that the card lets you convert points to Marriott Bonvoy which can then in turn be converted to 40+ airline programs including Aeroplan. Really, the card gives you a little bit of everything.Today, we see American Express reveal the best ever welcome bonus for this card! When you apply for the card between today and May 5 you can earn up to 45,000 Membership Rewards Points…
