Wealth Transfer

"Wealth Transfer" is a report discussing the in depth analysis of inheriting wealth across generations. Wealth Transfer touches on topics like the personal journey of learning, the inheritance experience, wealth transfer on hold, educating the next generation, and more. 

Insights into giving and inheriting wealth across generations

Within a generation, over $400 billion is expected to be passed down to inheritors in Canada. How are Canadian families preparing for one of the largest transfers of wealth in history? And will inheritors be ready?

 

“It’s up to the givers of wealth to proactively prepare the next generation to manage that wealth.”

 


Financial Literacy

Having achieved a comfortable level of wealth, it is understandable that you want your children to enjoy the opportunities available to them. But how do you balance that with raising financially responsible children? 

Financial literacy is an important life skill that evolves with a child's maturity level, yet it is not taught in school. We offer a Financial Literacy Kit - a useful package that offers strategies to help busy parents teach important age-appropriate savings, investing and credit skills.

Below are links to inserts from the kit that includes a comprehensive chart of ideas that steadily increases in financial responsibility, with the goal of nurturing an independent and money-wise young adult. We have also created age-appropriate reading material to encourage children to become involved and excited about building money skills and financial awareness.
