Investing in her Future takes Wing for Keisha – a Fortress against poverty
Ms. Keisha Worrell, the grand prize winner of a $5000 travel voucher on American Airlines in the Fortress Fund Managers RRSP End of Year Promotion for 2012, would rather be prepared than lucky.
That’s why when the legal assistant at BCF Attorneys-at-Law who has never won anything before, received a call at work informing her of the win, she promptly made a few investigative calls of her own before celebrating.
The lucky winner who invested in a Fortress Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) primarily as a retirement/pensions strategy said the announcement of her win had come at an interesting time:
“I had been discussing vacations with a friend and we were thinking of going to Trinidad for Carnival, but then she couldn’t go, so we thought let’s go to Las Vegas this November, and the next day I got this call so I was thinking maybe it one of my friends; but it was for real and now everyone wants to know if I am taking them,” she said.
Commenting on her choice of a Fortress RRSP, Keisha who noted she wasn’t even aware of the competition said she is a believer in being prepared early for retirement and pays her contributions every month on time.
Ms. Kim Howard, marketing manager at Fortress Fund Managers congratulated the grand prize winner on her good fortune, and especially on her prudence in choosing to invest early for retirement:
“All our RRSP investors should be congratulated on having made a wise decision but I don’t think we could have had a more deserving winner today than Keisha. There really is no better time to invest in a Fortress RRSP than when you are young and gainfully employed. She has made a wise decision, and we hope she has an enjoyable holiday and really enjoys her trip.”
Keisha’s voucher for $5000 in travel on American Airlines is valid for one year from date of issue, and is renewable for any portion of the funds not used in that year. The Fortress Fund Managers RRSP End of Year Promotion 2012 was open to anyone who invested between January 1st and December 31st 2012 by making contributions to new or existing RRSP investments.
