How we help you succeed

Group of people holding puzzle pieces


A couple had recently sold their food and beverage business — and expected to receive proceeds from the sale over the next four years. They intended to retire during this time, and their son and daughter would both be attending post-secondary school.


The couple needed a roadmap to effectively work with complex moving pieces such as personal assets, their family trust, and post-sale proceeds. This would help fund their children’s education as well as their retirement. 


Our advisors were able to work closely with the couple’s accountant and tax team to put together an effective financial roadmap to support the family’s goals for the future. The couple decided to purchase property near the university that their son was attending to generate rental income. Additionally, they made strategic use of their post-sale proceeds and family trust assets to fund their daughter’s education in the United States.

Our team also mapped out how each asset in the family would tax-effectively fund the couple’s goals for their retirement. This strategy prioritized sustainability and considered variables such as financial market outcomes.
