What is Retirement Planning?

First ask yourself “What is Retirement?” Retirement is “working” or “doing” what you want because you want to, not because you have to. Retirement is the transition from your regular work routine to a new life and new lifestyle.

Planning for retirement starts from where you are today, regardless of your age. A retirement plan can start as early as your first paycheque. Your savings and assets determine your retirement lifestyle.

Retirement planning is the process of preparing yourself for the financial transition at retirement by determining the actions necessary to achieve those financial goals.

What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of arranging for the fair and equitable distribution of all your assets to your beneficiaries with tax efficient considerations.

What is Succession Planning?

Succession planning is the orderly and efficient structuring of the transfer of a business to the next generation. This requires input from the business parties involved along with their legal and accounting professionals.
