Planning for retirement is one of our most important financial goals, according to recent surveys. The problem is that many people say they haven't done it yet.
With an achievable financial plan in place, and regular review and adjustment as needed, you can have the financial success you want in your retirement years.
We can help you develop a plan you can comfortably maintain, and provide investments that will grow your capital and support you as your financial requirements change over time. Saving for retirement can be as easy as making a monthly Pre-Authorized Deposit into your plan. Let us help you set up and manage your ongoing program.
Tax and Estate Planning
Properly planning your estate will give you the peace of mind that your family will be provided for when you are no longer able to do so. We can help you navigate through the documents you need to ensure your plan is complete, and assist in your regular review. An effective estate plan incorporates life changes on an ongoing basis, so you can be sure that all important aspects of your estate are included should anything unexpected happen to you. We'll guide you through a comprehensive regular review to make sure you include everything you want in your plan.
Your plan has to consider the effect of taxes on your investments and some of your property. Our expertise can help you determine how best to structure your estate to minimize the taxes that will have to be paid.
Investments and Financial Planning Services
Financial planning involves understanding not only your investments but also your debts. With our expertise behind you, you can develop a plan that reduces your debt load while you increase your investment capital and your net worth. The first step in the process is to sit with you and review your current situation, then help you develop and implement a financial management plan.
Investment options include investment accounts, RRSPs, Tax-Free Savings Accounts and investments you can make for your children, such as Registered Education Savings Plans and in-trust savings accounts. We can advise you on the various types of accounts and how they can work for you. We can also help you find effective ways to pay down your mortgage and control the interest cost.
We will help you define your short and long term financial goals and set up your plan, help you understand the variety of investment options and choose those that fit your needs. With ongoing reviews of the markets and your requirements as they change, we will work with you so you can continue to meet your goals.

Income and Cash Flow Generation
The ultimate goal of your investment plan is to generate income while it extends the life of your capital investment.
We will show you savings options that will build the cornerstones of your income, and, when you need that income, we will help you find and manage the investments or income plans that will give you the best possible income stream with the least possible effect on your capital value.
Accomplishing this goal is easier than you may think. If you are still in the saving stage, talk to us about regular Pre-Authorized Deposits into your investment account now and how it will make a difference when you need the income later.
For individuals needing income and cash flow now, we can help you find and manage the investments that will provide the cash flow you need while minimizing the effect on your capital
Life, Disability and Critical Illness Insurance
Life Insurance is an integral part of any financial plan. It allows you the peace of mind that you can continue towards financial independence even if you or a family member have to deal with the unexpected death of a loved one.
Critical illness insurance can help protect your finances if you cannot work due to a critical illness.
Disability insurance will replace a substantial portion of the income you may lose while you are disabled, reducing your stress and allowing you to focus on regaining your health and getting back to work.
We can help you choose and tailor the best insurance plan for you and your family that provides the coverage you need at a cost that will fit into your comprehensive financial plan.
