Wealth Building

With success comes new challenges. Building wealth requires a balance between meeting today’s financial needs and investing for the future.

As you progress in your career and your income grows, you become better prepared to meet financial challenges. You may have already accumulated savings or investments in a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA), a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) or in your non-registered investment portfolio and you likely have a clearer picture of your financial situation than when you were first starting out. But could you be doing even better?

Building for the future
This may be the right time for you and an Investment Advisor to delve more deeply into your evolving financial life and explore how you can effectively build and manage your wealth. A careful review of your finances and investments will clarify your financial picture and prepare you for the future. For more information, please complete this

Some of the questions you may be asking at this stage of life include:
• What are the most effective ways to invest?
• How can I meet daily financial challenges and still maximize RRSP contributions?
• What’s the best way to save for my children’s education?
• Does it make sense to pay down the mortgage and other debt as quickly as possible?
• What kind of insurance coverage do I need?

Retirement Planning

If you’re like most of us, you dream of a secure and comfortable retirement, but are unsure that you’re on track to achieve it. The best way to make that dream a reality is to start planning now.

Canadians’ retirement goals are as diverse as our country. But no matter how simple or grand your retirement dreams may be, it will take careful planning to bring them to life. You can do that with the help of the Jordan Daiter Wealth Management Group.

How we can help

At The Jordan Daiter Wealth Management Group, we’re retirement experts. We know that anyone planning for retirement today faces unique challenges. Today’s boomers are not only looking at funding a long retirement as life expectancy increases, many will also face challenges such as rising medical costs, and the absence of guaranteed workplace pensions enjoyed by previous generations.

We know that you expect more from your retirement stage of life, and we’ll work with you to understand your own vision of retirement. Do you want to retire early, before 60? Or perhaps, like more and more of us, you are looking to ease into retirement by gradually decreasing your work time, or working part time beyond the traditional retirement age. Whatever your vision of a comfortable retirement may be, you’ll get the guidance and reassurance you need from The Jordan Daiter Wealth Management Group. For more information please complete this

Your customized plan
Using sophisticated planning tools and professional expertise, we can create a clear picture of your retirement finances. We can show you whether you’re on the right track to saving and investing for a retirement that could last 25 to 30 years or even more.

We will create an individual wealth analysis that reflects your retirement lifestyle goals, your financial objectives, your current and future financial circumstances and your potential to save and invest. You’ll have a comprehensive picture of your current and future sources of income — including government programs, company pension plans, RRSPs, employment income and investments. We will even factor in the future impact of inflation and taxes.

Once we have a clearer picture, we will work with you to devise a saving and investment strategy that will allow you to achieve your wealth management objectives, including retirement.

Putting your strategy to work
We can access products and services from across the BMO Nesbitt Burns and BMO Financial Group network that will put your strategy to work. And as you move through life, we will show you how to protect and preserve the retirement wealth you’ve built.

Advice in action
Rebecca is the owner of a chic clothing store in her city’s entertainment district. Now 37 and living on her own, Rebecca is hoping she can save and invest enough to retire earlier than the traditional retirement age. She has no children, and her first marriage ended years ago. Her business was thriving until it was hit hard by the recession, and she realizes she can no longer count on the sale of her business alone to fund the retirement lifestyle she has planned.

Rebecca has $240,000 in her RRSP. In some years she has contributed the maximum, other years less. She wants to know how much wealth she’ll need if she wants to retire at age 55, and how to set up an investment strategy for meeting that goal.

The Jordan Daiter Wealth Management Group can work with Rebecca to achieve her goal of retiring at 55. We can assess her specific retirement needs — including calculating the income she’ll require at retirement, how much wealth it will take to generate that income, and the amount she’ll need to invest now, and in coming years, to build that wealth. We can help her immediately refocus her finances and investments to reach her retirement dream, as well as her other financial goals.

Advice in action: Paul and Deborah

Paul and Deborah have a close-knit family, including three grown children. Now in their early 60s, they are financially successful. They have an extensive investment portfolio, own rental properties and like to relax at the family island cottage they built 25 years ago.

One of their key financial goals is to leave significant inheritances – including the family cottage – for their children. Because one son and one daughter are living on the other side of the country, it seems practical to leave the cottage to their other son, who lives only 100 kilometres away. Paul and Deborah want to treat their children fairly, so they want to provide equally for the children who won’t share in the cottage. They’re also looking forward to continuing to live the comfortable life they’ve established for themselves when they retire.

Our group can show Paul and Deborah how an estate and insurance plan can help them preserve their assets and ensure a fair distribution of their legacy among their children, and refer them to appropriate professionals who can assist them with legal, tax and estate-planning issues. With a plan in place, we can help them better structure their investments to meet their current needs and long-term goals, while maximizing tax savings. Their Estate & Insurance Advisor can also help the couple explore life insurance and other strategies to ensure fair distribution of their estate.

All insurance products and advice are offered through BMO Nesbitt Burns Financial Services Inc. by licensed life insurance agents, and, in Quebec, by financial security advisors.

It can also enable you to realize considerable tax advantages. A donor-advised fund can be set up while you’re alive or as part of your estate plan.

Philanthropic Planning

Financial success offers the opportunity for more than personal satisfaction. Put some of the wealth you've accumulated to work for future generations by leaving a legacy.

Giving back to your community or shaping the future by endowing developments in educational, cultural or faith institutions are ideal ways to leave a lasting legacy. Our team can work with you to create a philanthropic strategy, and decide whether to contribute now or through your estate.

Tax-advantaged Charitable Giving
With proper planning, you can reduce your total tax liability and maximize the value of your donations by donating the share directly instead of selling the shares and then donating the cash proceeds.

Charitable giving has always been an important part of social history and the spirit that inspires it is universal. A desire to give is part of the legacy we want to leave behind. In an effort to increase charitable donations, the federal government has created tax incentives when you donate appreciated securities to a registered charity. Securities that qualify for special tax treatment include shares, bonds and mutual funds listed on a prescribed stock exchange. As a result, with proper planning, you can reduce your total tax liability and maximize the value of your donations by donating the share directly instead of selling the shares and then donating the cash proceeds.

Here’s how it works: if you are planning to make a $20,000 donation and you happen to have shares worth $20,000 (that cost you $10,000) you can either sell the shares and donate cash or donate the shares directly. Let’s assume that you pay tax at 45% and that you’ve already donated $200 so far so that any additional donations generate a tax credit at the top rate.

• Sell shares and donate $20,000
• You’ll pay capital gains tax of $2,250 (45% tax on one half of the $10,000 gain)
• The $20,000 donation tax credit will result in a tax savings of $9,000 (45% X $20,000)
• RESULT: you’ve given away $20,000 but the tax savings were $6,750 (the difference between the capital gains tax of $2,250 and the donation tax credit of $9,000)
• Donate shares
• There is no capital gains tax at the time you make the donation.
• The $20,000 donation tax credit will result in a tax savings of $9,000 (same as above)
• RESULT: you’ve given away $20,000 but your tax savings are the full $9,000

Whether you donate cash or the shares directly, you will receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the donation regardless of how the capital gain is treated for tax purposes. You may also donate shares acquired through employee stock options and flow-through shares but since these rules are more complex, you should consult with your tax advisor to determine what’s appropriate for your situation.

December is an important month for charitable giving and year-end tax planning. This year, take a more strategic approach by combining the two. To make the kind of impact you want, giving requires as much planning as does saving and investing. The role of an investment advisor is to both identify and help you understand all of your options and assist you in making informed decisions around your charitable giving.

How we can help
The Jordan Daiter Wealth Management Group will work with you to create a philanthropic strategy, and help you decide whether to contribute now or through your estate.

We can also help you plan your investments to create wealth specifically for the purposes of philanthropy. We'll show you how to make philanthropy an integral part of your financial life, while continuing to meet all your other goals.

If you're looking for an innovative way to create a flexible legacy with at least $25,000 to donate, we can introduce you to the BMO Nesbitt Burns Charitable Giving Program. This is a convenient, tax-effective way to give money to your favourite causes without administrative responsibilities.
