RESP

Registered education savings plans (RESPs) offer an effective way to maximize the money available to your children or grandchildren when they enrol in a full-time post-secondary program. And anyone – parents, grandparents, other family members and friends – can open an RESP for a child. As the cost of post-secondary education continues to rise, it’s becoming even more important to start saving early for their future education.

Term life insurance

Term life insurance is a simple and affordable way to help you meet short-term protection needs over a defined period of time, 10 or 20 years. It is ideal for those seeking basic coverage when insurance needs/financial risks are highest but available funds are limited – for example, a couple with young children and/or mortgage.

Preserving your business

As a business owner, it's important to consider the various ways to cover the risks your business faces, protect your employees and build employee satisfaction and loyalty. We offer a number of solutions to help business owners like you protect and grow your business.

Disability insurance

Protect your paycheque

 

Disability insurance works when you can't. It can give you tax-free monthly income to help pay expenses if an illness or accident stops you from working.

  • Monthly income. Payments replace part of your paycheque each month.
  • Guaranteed rates for your coverage until age 65.
  • Personalized. Customize your plan to suite your personal needs.

What is disability insurance?

It can give you a tax-free monthly payment to help replace your income and cover your expenses if an illness or injury keeps you from working.

 

While a disability can often be visible to hte naked ee, not all disabilities are so easily recognized. Chronic pain or a mental health issue can also qualify as a disability.

Critical illness insurance

Focus on your recovery knowing that you have the money to help with your expenses if you're diagnosed with a serious illness.

  • Tax free payout. A one-time benefit payment that you can use for whatever you need.
  • Health experts. World-renowned specialists can help oyu and your family at any time for any condition.
  • Additional support. Get counselling and other services from professionals during your recovery.

Critical illness insurance can give you a tax-free payment if you're diagnosed with a serious condition. Your contract will define which conditions you're covered for, but some examples include cancer, heart attack or stroke. 

RRSP and RESPs

Contributing to a Registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) is still one of the most popular ways to save for your retirement. Contributions are tax deductible and taxes are deferred until you withdraw your money.

Preserving your business

As a business owner, it's important to consider the various ways to cover the risks your business faces, protect your employees and build employee satisfaction and loyalty. We offer a number of solutions to help business owners like you protect and grow your business.

Segregated fund policies

Segregated fund policies pool money from many individuals that’s invested in a variety of investments by professional fund managers. What makes segregated fund policies unique is that they offer valuable protection features available only through insurance companies.

Segregated fund policies offer many benefits to help you reach your retirement and investment goals. These policies can provide potential growth and flexibility for your retirement income portfolio. Certain London Life segregated fund policies (excluding preferred series) can be part of the HelloLife retirement income program.

I can help you find the right combination of segregated funds to suit your risk tolerance, investment knowledge, investment time horizon and investment objectives.

Mutual funds

Mutual funds allow you to pool your savings with other individuals in a portfolio of investments managed by professional money managers. Because of the large amount of money in the pool, mutual funds can diversify your portfolio more widely than you may be able to do when investing on your own.

Through Quadrus Investment Services Ltd., I have access to Quadrus Group of Funds. This exclusive mutual fund family offers clients a multi-managed, multi-style approach by some of the world's leading investment managers.

Health insurance

As Canadians, we’re fortunate to have public healthcare coverage – but that doesn’t mean your provincial healthcare plan provides you with all the healthcare coverage you need.

You may be left to pay for expenses such as:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Visits to the dentist
  • Eye exams
  • Paramedical services
  • Transportation by ambulance

Our group benefit plans can help protect you against these and other unexpected healthcare expenses. From basic coverage to the maximum protection available, our plan selections, optional benefits and valuable services can make it easy for you to prepare for your healthcare needs.

Participating life insurance

Participating life insurance, also called whole life insurance, provides lifelong insurance coverage with an opportunity for a tax-advantaged cash value component (a guaranteed amount of money that grows inside the policy) and death benefit growth.

These policies give you the opportunity to earn policyowner dividends which can be used to purchase additional insurance coverage or reduce your annual premium payments. Dividends when credited to the policy have a cash value. You can withdraw cash from these policies or borrow against the policy’s cash value.
