Did you know that although coronavirus (COVID-19) is primarily a health challenge, its impacts on financial markets is very significant as well? On one hand, global death toll has gone over 100,000 people and on the other hand financial markets have gone down by over 30 percent. To address the elephant in the room, I decided to invite a health and financial expert over.

In this episode, we’ll talk about the deep impact the pandemic has on people’s retirement savings and cash flows. To help us figure things out, we have Doug Buss with us today. Doug has over 33 years of experience and is considered a veteran in the financial industry. Doug works with over 1,200 families and has been on the podcast before.

To cover topics related to elderly care and the role of caregivers, we have Taz Lakhani with us today. She is the director of care for Right At Home – Greater Winnipeg Area. She has been in the industry for over 15 years now. Taz works with various community organisations and lots of families who are dealing with dementia or various other elderly challenges. She’s working at the grassroots level.
