Investment Planning from Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network

When it comes to managing your assets and securing your investment future, partnering with seasoned experts is essential. At Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network (DFSIN Toronto West), our dedicated team offers comprehensive investment planning and tailored savings solutions to address a wide range of investment needs.

At DFSIN Toronto West, our primary objective is to safeguard your retirement income, preserve your estate, and optimize your savings while ensuring your investment objectives are met.

Exploring the Various Aspects of Investment Planning & Management in Canada

When it comes to investment planning and management, there are a variety of different aspects to consider, such as:

  • Estimating your life expectancy: Having a clear idea of your life expectancy will help you manage your assets when working with a trusted investment advisor. Some of the things that will affect it include the life expectancy of your gender, your state of health, whether you or a family member has ever been diagnosed with a critical illness, as well as other factors, like what age you plan to retire.
  • Determining Your Financial Health & Well-Being Zone: Determining your financial health and well-being zone is one of the best estate planning places to start. This entails assessing whether you have the right life and health insurance coverage, estimating your financial security, and determining whether you’ve made all the right moves in planning for retirement.
  • Planning Your Retirement: Piggybacking off of the point above, taking an in-depth look at your retirement plans is essential. Doing so will give you a good idea of what type of resources you’ll need to be comfortable down the road. Do you want to travel when you retire, start a big new project or spend it with family relaxing? All of these should play a big part in planning for the future.
