Group Retirement Programs

Overview

With the recent shift away from Government provided Pensions, more and more companies are looking to reward their employees by helping them save for Retirement. We custom-design retirement savings programs and consult in the design of both structured and voluntary retirement savings plans, as well as defined contribution and defined benefit pension plans. We will work with you and your employees every step of the way, from plan analysis and recommendations, to implementation and education, to regular ongoing reviews and support for your plan members. We guide you through the selection of money managers and administrative providers for the following types of plans.

  • Group Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP)
  • Group Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSA)
  • Deferred Profit Sharing Plans (DPSP)
  • Defined Contribution & Pension Plans
  • Defined Benefit Plans

Individual Pension Plans (IPP)

We also provide significant shareholders and business executives with a defined benefit Individual Pension Plan (IPP). These programs offer contribution levels which can be greater than a traditional defined contribution RRSP or Pension Plan.

Business Protection & Succession Planning

Overview

For most business owners, your company forms the basis of your family income, personal financial security, and establishes your legacy for the next generation. Business Protection Planning starts by considering the possible events that could jeopardize the momentum and value of your business, such as the death or disability of a key employee or shareholder.

We work intimately with our clients and their advisors to identify these risks, and to establish tax-effective strategies that can help protect against these difficult scenarios. This ensures that the value and viability of the business is maintained. A Business Succession Plan can help ensure that you, your family and business are all properly protected in the event of death, disability or retirement.

Business Protection & Succession Planning Concepts:
  • Key person insurance
  • Buy/Sell insurance
  • Loan protection insurance
  • Executive Compensation
  • Tax planning strategies for shareholders
  • Corporate Insured Retirement Plan
