Financial impacts of the midlife crisis explained by Eric Lebel      

Eric Lebel, Recovery & Reorganization Partner, depicts the financial consequences a midlife crisis may have, in an article in Les affaires. This period of self-questioning, conducive to separations, thoughtless spending and career changes, also affects retirement planning.

The expert recalls a failed career change by “a woman who bought a store without knowing much about how to manage a business. Since sales weren’t rising, she reinvested personal funds, but the store ended up closing and she wound up in bankruptcy”.

Eric Lebel also mentions the major impact of divorces on personal finances. “The basic cost of living is about $2,000 a month for a single person, compared to $2,500 for a couple,” Éric Lebel estimates. If the couple together earned $4,200, separation leaves little leeway to save for retirement.”

On June 3, 2015, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton welcomed clients and business partners to celebrate the official opening of its new office in Saint-Jérôme. Over 200 business people were present, as well as representatives from the Saint-Jérôme Mayor’s office and the member of the region’s provincial riding.

Sylvie Chartrand, Partner in Charge of the Saint-Jérôme office, stated “Our new work environment, at 296 De Martigny Street West, Suite 100, right next door to our old location, facilitates relationships with our clients. The larger, modern and welcoming facilities are better adapted to client growth and more functional to better help them succeed.”

You may recall that in July 2014 the Rochon Thériault Chartrand accounting firm in Saint-Jérôme joined Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. In March 2015, the large team of experts relocated to their new office.
