Do you need a physical bank? Or are you better off using a virtual bank instead? On today's podcast, guest Scott Terrio and host Doug Hoyes do a deep dive on what to consider when choosing banks, including some recommendations for no-fee accounts, why you should switch banks entirely if you're filing a bankruptcy or consumer proposal, and how to protect yourself from the bank's right of offset. They also discuss why Canadians are so attached to their banks in general and how the banker-customer relationship has changed over the years and why that matters. There's tons of practical advice in this show, so be sure to tune in!
