December 18th, 2018 - Women's Money Group Meeting

Dealing with Money in Relationships

Ottawa - Bayview Yards, 7 Bayview Rd, Ottawa, ON K1Y 2C5

Dec 18, 2018 | 7:00pm-9:00pm

Are you and your partner on the same page when it comes to money?

Do you share similar goals and approaches to managing it?

Are there any points of friction?

When was the last time you sat down to do a review of your current situation together? 

Does each partner know how to do every "job" in case life happens? Is that even necessary?

It's no secret that money is an emotional topic; never more so than in a relationship. Its importance is highlighted by the fact that financial issues are often a key factor in the breakdown of relationships.

What if there was a way to get you and your partner on the same page when it comes to money? What would that do to your results and your ability to create a rock-solid foundation?

At the December Women's Money Group meetup, we're going to take a look at how money works in a relationship and what you can do to strengthen your financial team. We'll also consider the strengths and weaknesses of different financial systems. This is the only meeting which is open to men, so go ahead and invite your spouse or partner to the meeting. If you're single, you're welcome to invite a friend.

Here are some of the questions we'll cover:

Should you share a bank account? What are the risks and benefits?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of dividing various financial tasks?

How do you get on the same page with your partner to ensure that you're working synergistically rather than working at cross purposes?

What if there are fundamental differences in values and approaches to money management? What do you do?

For the second hour, we have a guest speaker: Nancy Graham, CA, CFP and Portfolio Manager at PWL Capital. She will share her insights on money and relationships based on decades of experience working with couples.

As part of the December 18th event, you will have complimentary access to a webinar on January 8th, 2019 to follow up on your progress and review the information from the meetup.

If you're concerned or embarrassed about the thought that you'll have to disclose personal information, you can rest easy. This is a safe zone where you participate only if you choose to. If you'd prefer to sit quietly and simply absorb the discussions, that's perfectly fine.

If you're new to the Women's Money Group, you can attend your first meeting for only $20 plus tax - less than half the cost of the monthly membership! Gentlemen: You only pay $20 plus tax. You will need to register separately under your own name.
