Our focus is on lifetime financial security. So we go the extra mile to make sure that your financial planning needs – including estate planning – receive all the professional attention they deserve.
While many companies and individuals claim to do comprehensive financial planning, they are often specialists in just one or two specific areas and therefore perform only a partial service, such as investment planning. In isolation, such plans may not fit properly with your overall objectives or even more risky, they may not identify potential problems in other areas, such as taxation. One of the unique services available through a Sun Life Financial advisor is access to our Estate and Financial Planning Services (EFPS).
EFPS provides professional financial planning including: estate planning, retirement planning, taxation, investment strategies and money management related to tax and planning factors and contingency planning.
An EFPS specialist can:
Your Sun Life Financial advisor can provide access to an EFPS specialist. One of our salaried specialists will meet with you to collect detailed information, review your financial situation and prepare a written report with recommendations covering a variety of objectives. The specialist can then meet with you again to present and explain the financial plan.
EFPS also provides consultations for specific problems such as estate planning, retirement planning or related business issues. You can bring your lawyer, accountant or other professional advisors into the discussion to ensure all parties are aware of the total picture, not just their specific role. Co-ordinating family and business interests as well as legal and financial concerns is important when assessing long-range financial plans.
Our EFPS specialists are not licensed to sell financial products. They are full-time Sun Life Financial employees and are paid to be professional financial planners.
That’s the Sun Life Financial approach to financial planning.
