WEBINAR: Financial Planning for Intergenerational Wealth

You decide to see the Stampede this year and book a 2 week vacation to drive to Calgary and back. Picture this trip with no roadmap or forethought. You may get there eventually, but it will likely take longer and require more fuel than if you had carefully planned your route. A roadside emergency could not only cause delays, but force you to miss the entire event. Imagine spending your whole vacation trying to reach your destination and never getting there!

Without proper preparation, attempting to achieve your life’s financial goals is much the same. You may eventually get there but it will likely take longer and cost more money than if you had a financial plan to guide you. Failure to prepare for the bumps on the road and one could stall your trip to the point where you never achieve financial freedom.

A comprehensive financial plan takes into account all aspects of your personal and financial situation, ensuring your resiliency to all life events, and making the path to your goals clear. It involves six specific elements:

  • Financial Management
  • Investment Management
  • Risk Management
  • Tax Planning
  • Retirement Planning
  • Estate Planning

In this segment, we’ll outline the Financial Planning concept and discuss the areas of Financial Management and Retirement Planning.

Tom Cochrane said “Life is a Highway”; this episode should get you thinking about where you’d like go, when you’d like to arrive, and how best to get there.
