How we work with our clients

Understand Your Situation

The financial planning process by asking questions to get a clear picture of who a client is and what they want. The questions are qualitative and lead to a better understanding of the client’s health, family relationships, values, earnings potential, risk tolerance, goals, needs, priorities, and current financial plan.

Identify and Select Goals

Your advisor will use their financial expertise to help you set goals. They’ll ask clarifying questions to help you identify those goals. Example questions would be: What is your time horizon? Which goals do you want to accomplish in five years, 10 years, 20 years, or 30 years? What is your risk tolerance? Are you willing to accept a higher risk to achieve your investment goals, or would you prefer a conservative portfolio?

Analyze Current Action Plan

Next, we analyze a client’s current action plan to see if things are moving in the right direction. If not, we will identify possible “course corrections” and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option.

Develop Recommendations

We select one or more recommendations that we believe will help you meet your goals. We evaluate each recommendation based on this criteria:

  • Assumptions made to develop recommendations
  • How recommendations meet client’s goals
  • Integration with other aspects of a client’s financial plan
  • The priority of the recommendation
  • Whether a recommendation can be implemented independently or needs to be implemented with other recommendations

Implement the Recommendations

Implementing the recommendations means we are putting the plan to work for you. While this sound simple, for many people implementation is the most difficult step in achieving their financial goals. Even though the plan has been prepared, it usually takes desire and discipline to put everything into action. Some people worry about what happens if they fail. Sometimes inaction can grow into procrastination.

Monitor Progress and Revise Plans

The process is called “financial planning” for a reason. Plans often evolve and change over time – just like life. Once a financial plan is created, it becomes a part of your personal history. Every financial plan needs to be monitored and tweaked from time to time to reflect present realities. Over time various life situations can change: marriage, children, career changes, and more.

What We Do

Financial Planning

Many people will offer you advice on which investments to buy. But there’s more to your financial life than your RRSP.

Estate taxes, income taxes and education funds for your children are just some of the other complex aspects of your total financial picture.

Retirement Planning

For most Canadians, retirement is a major financial goal that requires considerable financial commitment.

Whether you have already established a Retirement Savings Plan or are just beginning, it is never too late to begin saving.

Estate Planning

Many people assume that estate planning is only for the wealthy.

So, it must come as a shock to the families of all the Canadians who die every year without a will when the province takes control of the estate to decide how the assets are to be distributed.

Tax Planning

Taxes are a fact of life. They affect every Canadian in most aspects of their lives.

Whether it’s earning an income, making a purchase, owning real property, investing, running a business, or transferring your estate, life is full of taxable consequences that, if left unchecked, could consume an ever increasing amount of one’s livelihood.

Portfolio Analysis

Careful portfolio analysis is necessary to ensure that you have the correct asset allocation according to your objectives and risk tolerance.

Long term investment returns are always directly determined by the types of assets held in an investor’s portfolio.

Insurance Analysis

Proper analysis is vital to ensure that you aren’t paying too much for insurance and that you have the correct type of insurance for your needs.

The decision to buy insurance to protect against a certain risk is usually based on some determination that there aren’t sufficient personal resources to cover the resulting financial loss.
