I’m truly honoured that The Globe and Mail readers have selected WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com as Canada’s Best Investing Blog. My thanks to Rob Carrick, David Berman, Ram Balakrishnan and Chaya Cooperberg for the nomination and many thanks to the readers who voted! Since there are going to be some new readers here for the next few days, I thought I would highlight some areas of the blog to get you up to speed quickly…
(Side note: while I have many posts on indexing, I believe most investors would be better off with a *good* advisor – the two conditions are not mutually exclusive!)

Who Am I and What Is This Blog All About?
My name is Preet Banerjee and I originally trained as a neuroscientist (UofT), then I raced cars, and became a financial advisor and now I work for an index fund manufacturer. I also have a TV show in development with the W Network after winning their W Expert Search in 2009. Basically I can’t hold down a job. Click here to read more about me.
