Create additional wealth

How we help

We can show you how insurance solutions may protect against the risk of future financial loss and help generate additional retirement income or cash flow.

Prepare for the future

At RBC Wealth Management Financial Services, we understand your needs and goals are always evolving. That’s why we work closely with you and your trusted professionals to identify potential wealth-creating opportunities.

Take care of those you leave behind

As much as we don’t want to admit it, life can be uncertain—and sometimes too short. Life insurance may create some of the wealth you’d no longer be able to provide if you die unexpectedly.

Typically, you would use life insurance for this purpose if you’re younger with financial obligations, such as a mortgage, education savings plans and childcare expenses. Your spouse might be financially compromised if you pass away.

Life insurance proceeds may also help pay for funeral expenses and taxation at death.

A solution on your terms

Depending on your needs, a cost-effective solution may be term life insurance. The benefit may help your family meet financial needs and obligations after you’re gone.

A term policy may include the option to renew your coverage during your term or convert it to a permanent plan. In most cases, this can be done without evidence of insurability.

Insurance may help with

  • Building estate wealth
  • Managing risk
  • Protecting your mortgage
  • Providing liquidity
  • Supporting dependants

Never outlive your retirement savings

Converting your life savings into a retirement income stream is a delicate process. A unique set of risks—such as longevity risks, market risks and the sequence of returns before and during retirement—have the potential to negatively impact a healthy retirement income stream.

Address risks with income segregated funds

Besides longevity and market risks, there’s also the risk of our savings not lasting long enough. Thanks to advances in healthcare, Canadians are living longer. Income segregated funds are designed to address these risks. These funds offer a guaranteed lifetime income stream to help protect you from outliving your savings.

Annuities may offer you peace of mind

If you’re looking for another way to receive predictable retirement income, consider purchasing an annuity. Independent from market and interest rate fluctuations, annuities create a steady cash flow with locked-in payments.

People often use annuities as an efficient way to cover fixed costs. The steady cash flow may also help you avoid the need to liquidate other investments or assets.

With a life annuity in your wealth plans, you will never outlive its income stream, and only the interest income is taxable.

Income wealth solutions may help with

  • Peace of mind in retirement
  • Predictable lifetime income
  • Protection from market risks
“I believe our estate planning specialist’s greatest attribute is their ability to simply explain to our clients how and why insurance is important to their family’s overall well-being. We always preach to our clients that investments are an important aspect of what we do, but it isn’t the only thing we do for them. We also want to make sure our clients have a financial plan, and they and their families are adequately protected if some unforeseen unfortunate event happens in their lives.”
