Does Borrowing to Invest Make Sense with High Interest Rates?

Should you borrow to invest?

With interest rates up 3.5% so far in 2022, you may be wondering if it still makes sense.

Spoiled with low interest rates so low, leverage seemed so obvious with a credit line at 3% and tax-deductible.

As a financial planner and expert on the Smith Manoeuvre strategy, and a proponent of investing in the stock market, my latest video will give you my insight.

You’ll learn:

  • How to borrow to invest (“leverage”) effectively.
  • What happened with leverage in past periods of high interest rates?
  • How high can interest rates go & borrowing to invest is still beneficial?
  • Rule of thumb for breakeven point of borrowing to invest.
  • What is the mindset you need to borrow to invest effectively?
  • What is the best tax deduction after RRSP for high income people?

I hope you enjoy it!
