We Sell No Products Whatsoever
Our sole purpose is unbiased, objective financial, tax and estate planning advice
Fee-Only, Advice-Only Financial Planning
If you’re looking for a new investment advisor, we have third parties that are on our “short list” that we can introduce you to. We receive no kickback or referral fee from these third parties. They’re on our short list because we know them, we like them and we feel comfortable referring a client to them.
We provide financial planning for Canadian expatriates who have relocated to other parts of the world. We can advise on issues related to Canadian investments, real estate, income tax and retirement, with a particular focus on those expats who plan to retire back to Canada.
Employee Financial Planning
Many companies have started to add fee-only, advice-only financial planning as a perk for their senior executives. It helps keep top talent focused on corporate business because they know their personal business is well-organized by a professional who is on their side. Furthermore, the group benefits provider or pension administrator that works with the broader employee base may do an excellent job for most employees, but may not be well-equipped to counsel a company’s senior management.
Retirement planning provided by a advice-only financial planner is also one of the few employee benefits that is not taxable on an employee’s T4 here in Canada. As such, it can be a way to compensate an employee without having the employee taxed on that compensation.
We can build a retirement plan that is relevant to you regardless of your age or stage. How much do you need to save each year? How much do you need to retire? How much can you afford to spend in retirement? What is the best way to draw down your assets? We can help answer these questions.
Tax planning is a very important piece of your overall financial picture and requires special consideration. Our tax services include tax planning and tax preparation.
Clients who work with us on an ongoing basis will have their wills, powers of attorney, insurance and beneficiary designations reviewed on a regular basis. Estate planning tends to be an interrelated part of an overall financial plan.
Paraplanning (The Planner's Planner)
In the U.K and Australia, paraplanning is a popular service among financial advisers. Advisers commonly outsource the preparation of financial plans and other services to paraplanners. In Canada, there are few firms providing paraplanning services. We are one of them.
What’s your hourly “rate”? Is your time best spent doing financial plans or paying someone else to do it so you can instead be in front of your clients?
You might have an assistant who is capable of preparing financial plans, but how comprehensive and valuable is the advice that is being generated by this work?
The landscape is becoming more and more competitive, with companies looking to provide comprehensive financial, tax and estate planning advice in-house to high net worth clients. It may be that your company does not provide these services or perhaps not all of your clients qualify.
Doing some comprehensive planning for a high value client could keep a client that would otherwise look elsewhere for these services. Keeping a client is a lot easier than getting a new one.
What about prospects? Partnering with a third-party comprehensive financial planner could be the difference that helps you win a new account from the competition.
We provide one-time and ongoing financial plans of various levels of complexity as well as personal and corporate tax and estate planning advice. We’re more than happy to work with you and your clients on whatever level you feel works best. Our fees are based solely on time and volume discounts apply.
The purpose of this meeting is to understand your specific needs to determine if and how we can help. We then provide a quote for our services to be detailed in a written engagement letter that acts as our contract to you. Please note we cannot provide advice to you during this introductory meeting.
We work with many self-directed DIY investors. That said, we cannot provide investment recommendations for the purchase or sale of specific securities, nor can other fee-only/advice-only financial planners in Canada who are not licensed to manage your investments.
Please note our minimum consultation fee is $1,500 plus applicable sales tax. If you provide some information below and request it from us, we can provide a rough estimate on pricing prior to an introductory meeting.
