Wealth Transfer

From tax-effective life insurance strategies to charitable giving solutions, we offer several options for ensuring that your heirs or favourite charities receive the full value of your intended gift.

Explore how we can help you transfer your wealth more effectively using:


Tax-Exempt Life Insurance

We can help you significantly enhance the value of your estate by passing along more assets than you could otherwise achieve through a purely investment-driven strategy. One of the main ways we can help you do this is through tax-exempt life insurance.

Like a pension or non-registered account, tax-exempt life insurance serves as another asset within your overall portfolio—with some unique advantages.

Under the Federal Income Tax Act:

  • Assets accumulate within a tax-exempt life insurance contract free of annual accrual taxation
  • When you pass away, any proceeds of the policy distributed to beneficiaries, including the initial insurance coverage and any accumulated assets, are done so on a tax-free basis, outside the scope of your estate

What's more, tax-exempt life insurance also provides:

  • The potential for tax-free income during retirement
  • Funds for paying the tax liabilities incurred within your other pools of capital

To learn about the different types of coverage and how you can use tax-exempt life insurance in your overall estate plan, please contact a Life-Licensed Investment Advisor.
