Today people are greatly concerned about their money and how they can keep most of their hard earned cash! Working with an advisor will allow you to achieve your goal faster.



  • Are you aware that up to 73% of Canadians retire on the poverty line with income of $15,000 or less per year?
  • Many Canadians have given no thought to retirement plans, and are finding disappointment that they will have to live well below their usual standard of living.
  • There are many roads that can lead to a secure financial retirement.

Insurance Companies have many options that have helped Canadians over the years. A guaranteed income product is one of those options for people about to retire, in their early years, or investing for their retirement.

Some serious questions can be asked, are you worried about:

  • market downturns?
  • having enough money to support your lifestyle after retirement?
  • concerned about outliving your money?

All these concerns can be solved by using a “Guaranteed Income Product”. These products safeguard one’s investment against market downturns.

Locked in investments growth may increase the guaranteed investment. This is important to offset inflation!
