Why You Should Be More Concerned With TAXES Not FEES

Retirement Income Planning, Calgary

Every dollar you save in taxes is not only an extra dollar that you have available to enjoy your lifestyle, but it is also a dollar you do not have to take from your retirement savings and it can be another dollar you can use to grow your income.

Low fees on investments do not equate to better returns or good advice. In your younger years when your focus is on accumulating wealth, low fees may be an advantage. However, in the retirement income years, good advice is what you will value. Advice that leads to proper planning and creating tax-efficient and sustainable lifetime income.

Proper tax planning strategies can save you thousands and in some cases millions of dollars in taxes. Don't get caught up in cheap investment advice. You get what you pay for.

It's the after-tax, and after-fee, rate of return that matters most on your investments. 

A better approach

Work with an advisor who can provide you with the best investment opportunities and also provide you with a financial plan that suits you and your unique situation and helps you reach your goals.

How often should you meet with your Advisor?

It will be more often in the early months as you are putting together a plan. Afterward, you can meet with your Advisor 2-3 times per year to review and update your plan. If you have a major life event then it would be a good time to meet with your Advisor and ensure you are on track financially and update your plan accordingly.

2 things to remember:

1. It's the after-tax and after-fee rate of return that matters, and...

2. Ensure you are receiving good planning for the fees you are paying, otherwise you might as well do it yourself.

Latest Testimonial

Partnering up with Willis & Nancy for our retirement goals has been the best decision we have ever made.

Previous agents or companies only seemed interested in obtaining funds from us with no further support or contact.

Willis & Nancy have worked with us at least twice a year to make sure we are set up for success. They have been able to provide us with a visual picture of where we currently stand financially in order to determine if we are ready to retire or need a few more years. It has alleviated the stress we were feeling about retiring and having no idea of what that would look like.

For the first time, we feel confident that when we make that final decision we will be able to continue on and be financially and mentally prepared.
