Retirement and business succession planning is paramount to you and your company’s future

They are saving for retirement but they have little knowledge of how best to maximize their investments for retirement and forging a business succession plan. A qualified Financial Advisor will help keep your investments consistent with your financial goals and your risk tolerances.

To find a qualified Financial Advisor ask your business associates, friends or relatives for recommendations. You can also contact the Financial Planning Standards Council (www.fpsc.ca) or look in your local business directory.
After you find a few candidates in your area, call them and schedule an appointment to meet and interview them personally. You then need to ask all the right questions and be certain the individual you hire has the experience and qualifications to steer you in the right direction.
