WealthBar Offers Help To Canadian Expats In The Middle East
A few days ago, I spoke at the Hayat Universal Bilingual School in Doha, Qatar. It follows a British Columbia teaching curriculum. Most of its teachers are Canadian.
WealthBar learned that I would be traveling to this school. “Why don’t we offer your books to the Canadian teachers who work there?” asked WealthBar’s Neville Joanes.
WealthBar builds portfolios of low-cost index funds. Most Canadian investment firms don’t offer services to expatriate Canadians. But this one does.
Their offer was generous and pretty savvy. Since January, plenty of Canadian expats have signed on with WealthBar.
When I arrived at the school, the books were already there. I opened the boxes and put WealthBar’s sticker on every book.
I warmed up by playing a bit of table tennis with the teacher who organized my visit, Mohsin Omar.
The school in Doha appeared to be run-down. But the teachers had a lot of spirit. They asked great questions and we enjoyed plenty of laughs.
I’ve been speaking at a different school or business every day.
Most of them are British. In many ways, I’ve become an international chameleon. I was born in England, so I relate to the British.
I worked at an American school. I write for an American firm, and my wife is American.
But I grew up in Canada, so it was great to immerse myself with a group of easy-going Canadians.
Thank you, WealthBar, for buying them these books.
