Media Advisory/Save the Date-BMO Panel: RRSP Investing Strategies in Volatile Times

As the February 29th RRSP deadline approaches, BMO hosts media panel on how to get the most from your retirement savings

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2012) - With the February 29th deadline to make a 2011 contribution to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) rapidly approaching, BMO investing experts will be hosting a media panel to share strategies and insights with Canadians on how to get the most from their RRSPs during times of market instability.

In 2011, a confluence of events around the world, including the Arab Spring, the European sovereign debt crisis and a sluggish U.S. recovery, helped create a very volatile market environment. The TSX alone dropped eleven per cent during the year. And, while January 2012 saw some gains, most predict "volatility" will continue to be the operative word moving forward.

Amid this instability, saving for retirement remains a constant for millions of Canadians. BMO experts will provide their retirement saving insights on topics such as:

  • What does RRSP portfolio diversification look like in this market environment?
  • Are there any strong performing sectors that investors should consider?
  • What are the safer investment options available and how can they be integrated into an RRSP?
WHAT: BMO RRSP Investing Strategies Panel
WHO: Tina Di Vito, Head, BMO Retirement Institute
Domenic Gallippi, Head of Term Investment Products, BMO Bank of Montreal
Serge Pépin, Head of Investments, BMO Investments Inc.
WHEN: Friday, February 24, 2012 11 a.m. ET
