Single

Running a single-person household has a unique set of challenges. Not only is there the emotional pain of separation, a new host of financial problems can arise.

The absence of your partner can feel like someone removed a limb. Your other half is gone, and now the other half of the income is gone too. It’s like taking a 50% pay cut at work – except you have more responsibilities than ever before. The mortgage, groceries, and all the other bills still cost the same, but now you have only half of the money to pay them. If you have multiple children, juggling all of your time and energy can feel like an Olympic feat.

Successfully managing a single-person household involves recognizing the different priorities you now have. Some things you may have thought were optional before are now mandatory. Everyone knows how important life insurance is, but what about disability and critical illness coverage? This is something you may have waved off previously, but now, it becomes more important than ever before. If you suffer a serious injury, how will you take care of yourself or your children? Other health benefits may also become a priority. You may need help managing the financial issues of a divorce settlement or estate distributions.

Separation can feel overwhelming in every aspect of your life. A financial adviser can help you with some critical financial details so you can focus on recovering from your loss.

There will be a new tomorrow, and a trusted advisor can help you get there.

What our clients are saying...

  • We valued receiving a detailed report and explanation of our finances. When working with a financial planner, we expect to have our questions answered with adequate detail and to have a plan developed to help grow our money. Our expectations were clearly met and we would be happy to recommend Anthony to anyone looking for a Financial Plan.

  • We valued the fact that you sat down with us, heard what we wanted to say, asked for clarification and offered suggestions, and then came up with a detailed and well-reasoned plan in a short period of time and communicated that back to us so that we knew what we needed to do moving forward. Thanks!

    Our expectations for a financial planner are several fold: (1) Does the planner communicate well, in that they both listen but also offer suggestions and ideas in a clear easy-to-understand way, (2) Are they able to meet their client at the same energy/level and meet their specific needs? In our case we needed a tax minimization strategy within a short turn around time. (3) Did the planner actually do their job, in that were they able to provide ideas and suggestions that helped address the client's asks?

    We came to see you because we realised that we hadn't looked at how to minimize the taxes related to my Father’s estate planning and my mother’s future financial planning, and you were able to tell us things that we didn't know about, and offered us solutions that helped us with our future financial planning.

    You definitely met our expectations! In some ways, you actually exceeded our expectations. We were hoping that you could respond quickly, and you came up with a detailed and well-reasoned plan faster than we expected!

    Our only area of improvement we could think of was, given that the plan was very detailed, if we had an explicitly spelled out action plan with a timeline for completion.

    We are very happy and would definitely recommend you to our family and friends and in fact have already done so!

  • Anthony made the process very clear and explained each step along the way. He was very honest and straight forward. My expectation from a financial planner is that they are honest and transparent. Anthony definitely met my expectations and I would be happy to recommend him to my family and friends.

  • When working with a financial planner our expectations are to maximize our investments and have a solid plan for retirement. We now have a greater awareness of our current portfolio and options to best protect our estate. We were provided with good information to use in order to make better investment and estate planning decisions. We would gladly recommend Anthony to our family and friends.

  • We value the personal service and detailed explanations we receive from Anthony on an ongoing basis. We feel comfortable recommending Anthony to our family and friends as he is someone who we can trust and has our best interests in mind. He has been great at helping us work towards a comfortable and manageable retirement.

  • The financial planning process we went through was clearly outlined and explained to me. I wanted to have a better understanding of my financial position and to know whether I could retire early or not.

    I am happy to recommend Anthony to my family and friends.
