A significant component of most investment portfolios, mutual funds may fit into your financial security plan. Mutual funds allow individuals to pool their savings in a diverse portfolio of investments managed by professional money managers.
Segregated fund policies
Segregated fund policies are long-term investments that offer capital guarantees. By pooling money from thousands of investors, professional investment managers invest in a variety of individual securities. Since they’re only available through an insurance policy, segregated fund policies have several features and benefits that make them different from mutual funds.
Financing a home may be the biggest financial decision you make. As your financial security advisors, we can help you make the right decision by helping tailor a mortgage to your financial security plan. We work with Canada Life Credit Planning Consultants, who have the knowledge and experience to help select a mortgage that works for you.
Along with helping you build and manage your investments, we can help you choose insurance products to minimize financial risk to you and your family.
Individual life insurance
There are two kinds of life insurance coverage – term and permanent. They offer different features to meet different needs.
Term life insurance is temporary coverage that lasts for a set period and automatically renews in most cases. With term insurance, the payments you make, called premiums, are set at an initial low cost and won’t change during that period.
Permanent life insurance can protect you and your family throughout your lifetime. It provides a death benefit and usually builds a cash value. The cash value accumulates within the policy on a tax-advantaged basis. If you need to, you can withdraw cash or borrow against its value. Withdrawals may be subject to tax.
Having the right life insurance protection can make a huge difference in your life, and the lives of those close to you. A financial security plan that includes life insurance can help ensure you leave your estate financially secure, and avoid debts and an inadequate income for your family.
Accidents and illnesses are unfortunate facts of life. Disability insurance coverage is designed to help protect your most valuable asset – your ability to earn an income, which can be jeopardized if tragedy strikes.
Critical illness insurance
A critical illness or condition, such as heart attack, cancer or stroke, can turn your life upside down. It can affect you physically, emotionally and financially. Critical illness insurance can protect both you and those close to you from the financial effects of a critical illness.
Health and dental insurance
Provincial governments continue to cut back their levels of healthcare coverage, leaving you to pay for expenses such as prescription drugs, eye exams and paramedical services. We can help you build a plan that supplements your provincial government plan.

While borrowing to invest can be a powerful means to build wealth, the risks involved make it a strategy that is not suitable for everyone. Leveraging magnifies gains or losses.
