MoneyPages evolved from trying to find answers to our own personal financial questions. These ranged from the amount of money that we should be saving for retirement to answering questions about home purchase, debt management, post-secondary education costs and estate planning issues.
We gradually began to develop a small database of information and financial articles as well as an array of spreadsheets for financial calculations but it was clumsy. Eventually we decided to consolidate the information we gathered on a website.
We thought we would share our efforts with you. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
