A proper financial plan is critical to managing and taking control of your personal finances. From mortgage payments to tax savings, we can help you manage your money as effectively as possible, given your personal situation. Financial freedom isn’t so far out of reach when our financial advisors holistically analyze your finances, eliminate uncertainty, and cultivate lifelong trust.
Depending on your stage of life, chances are you’ll have a distinct approach to saving for the future. New graduates or young couples have different savings needs than retirees or mid-career families and, therefore, may go about it differently. Many people of all ages struggle to save because they aren’t sure how much they should put into their savings account. This level of uncertainty can severely hinder you from achieving your goals, but rest assured that no matter your personal situation, we can help you develop financial habits that will lay a strong foundation for your savings and reduce anxiety about the future.
Younger individuals and couples have a number of benefits in terms of financial management. Low insurance costs and a long investment horizon, combined with few responsibilities, can make for an excellent financial base. We can help you build on these advantages, while at the same time considering a debt load that might include student loans, car payments or perhaps a mortgage.
Couples planning for a first child enter into a new level of commitment—both personally and financially. Learn how to save for a child through specialized insurance and investment products, such as a Registered Education Savings Plan.
Mid-career professionals typically have higher incomes than younger investors—but they also carry more responsibilities. From mortgage payments to a child’s education, consider a financial plan that balances your needs and obligations.
Retirees have worked hard at their careers, and now is the time for relaxation and celebration. Chances are children have moved from home, the mortgage is mostly paid off and a few investments are coming to fruition. However, income levels may have dropped after retirement. Find out how to manage your finances in a way that allows you to fully enjoy the fruits of your hard work.
No one likes taxes, but through the advice of a professional financial advisor, you can access products and services that help ease the burden. Charitable contributions, life insurance policies and investment products can all be useful tools in an effective tax strategy. Working together, we will consider your personal situation and design a tax plan that fits your needs, especially as your income evolves.
Choose from a variety of products and services such as:
- Income-splitting for spouses or common-law couples
- Charitable donations, which benefits important not-for-profit work and allows donors to maximize tax credits.
- Life insurance products that build tax-advantaged capital for retirement.
- Investment products that provide for tax benefits
Preparing for succession after death is a difficult issue to discuss, but it is also an important part of any comprehensive financial plan. We can help you and your loved ones approach succession planning in a constructive manner that ensures they avoid problems and are well cared for in the event of your death. Financial security and stability can make it easier to cope with the loss of a loved one, so this process involves two main considerations: life insurance and preparing a will.
Life insurance can ease the financial burden and provide security for your loved ones in the event of your death. A lump-sum payment can be used for mortgage costs or to supplement lost income, helping your successors during a difficult period.
A written will provides a means to guide your loved ones through the succession process. By naming your executors and providing instructions on the distribution of your estate, your surviving loved ones avoid having to guess your wishes. Rather than provincial law determining how your assets are to be divided—a situation that can result in lengthy court proceedings—a clear, carefully considered written will provides clear instructions to your successors. Save your loved ones the stress of dealing with financial issues by planning for your succession while you are alive.
Buying a home can be one of the most exciting purchases of your life—but it is also a big decision that will have a major impact on your financial plan. Whether you’re looking at a one-bedroom condominium or a five-bedroom house, we will holistically analyze your circumstances in order to help plan a mortgage strategy that fits your needs and considers your other financial responsibilities.
When discussing a mortgage, questions on the right time to buy a home and whether it’s even a good idea will arise. By assessing all the costs involved–from taxes to renovations–we will work with you to determine whether taking out a mortgage makes sense for your budget. If it doesn’t, we can work it into your financial plan.
