What We Do
We provide advice for wealthy individuals who are committed to achieving personalized financial goals and success.
Wealth planning can involve a number of strategies devised and executed by BMO Wealth Management professionals, who specialize in key areas:
• estate planning
• financial planning and retirement planning
• tax planning
• post-transition planning
• business transition
Our professionals can work in conjunction with your own advisors, such as your lawyer and accountant. The result is a customized wealth plan that is tailored to your needs.
BMO Wealth Management offers comprehensive Estate Planning services to clients who appoint BMO Trust Company as executor of their estate. An effective estate plan preserves your wealth for your family and arranges for its orderly and tax-efficient transfer to your heirs. It can involve wills, powers of attorney and/or trusts. Our experts will work with you to create an innovative and customized estate plan, based on your needs and objectives that will form part of a complete and seamless wealth management strategy.
Financial Planning and Retirement Planning
BMO Wealth Management delivers objective, personal financial planning, including planning for retirement, as a component of every client’s experience. Working with your other advisors as appropriate, we help you articulate your financial goals and establish a plan to achieve them, given your current and future resources.
Whether your BMO professional performs a fundamental financial analysis or involves one of our dedicated wealth planners to produce a comprehensive financial plan, we can help you make better financial decisions.
BMO Wealth Management offers experienced in-house tax professionals who can integrate their tax knowledge with your overall wealth plan by working together with your existing advisors.
Whether you are taking an early retirement or have been displaced by corporate restructuring, you have important decisions to make that can significantly affect your future financial security. Your BMO professional can help take the guesswork out of your transition planning. Together, you can chart a course that is right for you.
