TODAY-BMO Panel: How to Create a Winning RRSP Portfolio
Join BMO investing experts on February 15th at 11 a.m. as they provide insights on how to manage investments within an RRSP and share their market and sector outlook

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/13 -- According to a BMO Financial Group Study, 74 per cent of Canadians have already made, or plan to make, a contribution towards their Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) before the March 1st deadline. However, making a contribution is just the first step in helping ensure a well-funded retirement. How those funds are invested within the RRSP is equally important in helping set oneself up for retirement success.

To assist Canadians in navigating through an increasingly complex market environment, BMO will be convening a panel of investing experts to discuss saving and investing for retirement.

BMO's experts will provide their views on a variety of issues related to managing money within an RRSP, including:


--  RRSP Investing Basics: What types of investments can be held in an RRSP?
--  The Art of Diversification: What does RRSP portfolio diversification
    look like in this market environment? How should age and life stage
    impact an RRSP portfolio? What role can exchange traded funds (ETFs)
    play in helping ensure a diversified portfolio?
--  Balancing Risk and Return: How can investors determine their level of
    risk tolerance? What strategies can help mitigate against risk, but
    provide a solid return on investment?
--  Market and Sector Watch: Where is the smart money going in this low
    interest rate environment? What are the safe havens?
