Protect your wealth

How we help

Explore how insurance solutions may help you protect the value of your estate and fund your estate’s tax liabilities.

Preserve your lifestyle and your legacy

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you will live comfortably in retirement and potentially leave something for your family in your future estate. At RBC Wealth Management Financial Services, we can help you and your trusted professionals identify opportunities to protect and preserve your wealth.

Safeguard your estate

Without proper planning, the value of your assets could be reduced by a hefty tax bill. While the tax bill may be relatively low today, it may increase over time as your assets do. Your estate may not have enough liquid assets or cash on hand to pay this bill and may have to decide which assets to sell to fulfill the obligation.

Prepare for future estate costs

Life insurance may help leave your estate intact. It is the most cost-effective method of funding the tax liability associated with transferring your assets when you die. A policy benefit offers immediate and tax-free liquidity to help meet other estate obligations, which may include probate and settlement costs.

Rely on our in-depth knowledge to determine the appropriate coverage for your personal and corporate needs.

Life insurance may help with

  • Estate planning
  • Tax planning
  • Retirement fund creation
  • Wealth accumulation

Survive and thrive

Most people think of using insurance to protect what they own or provide for loved ones when they pass away. But what happens if you’re diagnosed with an illness, survive a severe accident, or can no longer care for yourself due to illness or age?

Protect your financial stability

Living benefits insurance provides you with funds if you cannot work, have to pay additional recuperative costs due to your medical condition, or can no longer live independently. There are three types of living benefits: disability insurance, critical illness insurance and long-term care insurance.

Living benefits help you when you’re unable to work, recovering or require care at home or in a retirement residence. These benefits help protect your financial stability, so you can focus on living well today and tomorrow.

Living benefits insurance may help with

  • Accommodating health-related needs
  • Income replacement
  • Long-term care expenses
  • Maintaining your lifestyle

Enjoy peace of mind

Everyone would like higher returns, but few are willing to assume the higher risks usually associated with those types of investments. With that in mind, you may want to consider a segregated fund.

Preserve your principal

Traditional segregated funds are an insurance-based solution that combines capital protection and growth. Although they are like mutual funds, segregated funds provide a maturity guarantee and a death benefit guarantee for added peace of mind. Regardless of market performance, these funds guarantee 75 percent to 100 percent of your principal at maturity.

These funds also offer you the flexibility for diversity and growth potential. Let us help you and your trusted professional find the traditional segregated fund that suits your needs.

Income wealth solutions may help with

  • Potential capital growth
  • Principal protection
  • Risk management

Create additional wealth

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


Estate preservation

Offset costs incurred at death by having life insurance proceeds pay them for you. The preferred status of tax-exempt life insurance may help you maximize the value of your estate and the value transferred to the next generation.

Securing your income

Traditional segregated funds help preserve what you have built and may capture future market growth. Income segregated funds provide guarantees for a stable retirement income, regardless of market changes.

Executive insurance planning

Consider providing life insurance coverage for your executives. This offers protection for their family if they die, and the business may benefit from an investment offering tax-deferred growth.

Key person protection

People play a crucial role in your company. In the event of their disability, illness or death, a costly void may be created. Life or living benefits insurance on key people may help mitigate these costs.
