Renowned Personal Finance Expert, Media Personality, Author and Keynote Speaker
Pattie Lovett-Reid is a highly respected Canadian financial guru. As CTV News’ former Chief Financial Commentator, Lovett-Reid is well experienced in coaching her audience on how to save money, stretch their income, and get the biggest bang for their hard-earned bucks. Her unique and skillful ability to translate complicated and detailed personal finance strategies into frank, savvy financial advice has transformed the lives of many Canadians.
Lovett-Reid provided weekday financial updates for CTV News Channel, CP24, and regional CTV MORNING LIVE broadcasts across the country, and remains a regular guest commentator on BNN Bloomberg, CTV’s YOUR MORNING, THE SOCIAL, NEWSTALK 1010, and other media platforms. Lovett-Reid's career journey is one filled with admiration, inspiration, and a strong sense of determination. Her career began right out of high school as a bank teller and with no formal post-secondary education, and a low glass-ceiling for women in finance, her career was unlikely to blossom beyond branch management.
However, Lovett-Reid climbed the ranks in the investment world and after a very successful 30+ year career with TD Waterhouse Canada Inc., where she served as Senior Vice-President, she then took on the role of Chief Financial Commentator with CTV News in early 2012. Lovett-Reid is a Certified Financial Planner, co-author of several national bestselling books, and was awarded with an honorary degree in Applied Studies from Humber College in June 2010. The Financial Planners Standards Council (FPSC) recognized Lovett-Reid with the 2009 Donald J. Johnston Award for her outstanding contribution to the profession of financial planning in Canada. In 2011, Lovett-Reid was awarded the Financial Planning Canada Fellow of Distinction and in 2007 and received Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100™ Award in the Trailblazers and Trendsetters Category.
Today, Pattie splits her time between Toronto and Muskoka Canada with her husband Jim Reid, their children and growing group of grandchildren. Pattie will work with organizations to customize presentations and desired content. She is highly sought out to host panel discussions and deliver conferences presentations.
