Personal Finance Expert
Helping you understand money better
Rubina is a journalist and personal finance expert and the go-to money expert in Canada for several media outlets.
Rubina began her career as a broadcast journalist in 1999. Since then, she has covered everything from local news, foreign affairs, politics, sports and of course finance!
As a business reporter, she has worked for CP24 from the Toronto Stock Exchange and reported for BNN. Her work has also appeared in the Toronto Star and various other national magazines.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from York University and is an alumna of the Humber College post-graduate journalism program and holds the CSC designation.
Lessons about personal finance came at a young age for Rubina. The first time she learnt about money was during lunchtime in Grade 7. All of the kids went to the corner store to get a slice of pizza and she was 25 cents short. Rubina realised she had spent too much of her allowance the day before. Her friend was kind enough to lend her a quarter but she learnt, from that day forward, to care for her finances to afford the luxuries in life.
With Canadians in record amounts of debt, people are more interested in learning how to save, manage and invest their money. Her goal is to help Canadians find easier ways to do exactly that.
