Wondering if you have the means to make your dream retirement come true? You may not have put much thought into your retirement while you were raising your children and paying off your mortgage. You're not alone.
But it's never too late to start planning.
First, meet with an advisor. Talk to one of our Investment and Retirement Development Managers or Financial Planners1 — they'll provide step-by-step guidance throughout the process of planning your retirement, based on your goals and stage of life.
Just as you plan a career, a nice retirement needs planning, too. Do you plan to volunteer, go abroad, or just take the time to live? These goals define your financial needs. Your advisor will optimize your investments based on your future lifestyle and retirement plan.
To be more precise, your advisor establishes a realistic assessment of your financial situation with you. We look at your sources of income, plans to convert your RRSPs to RRIFs, determine how to use your pension fund, and more!
