    Exercising your Options – Helping your clients make Pension Decisions
      
    For many people pensions, in particular defined benefit plans, remain a mystery. In this session we will look at the most common pension decisions and see how they can be analyzed so that your clients will appreciate the thought process that is involved and the importance of the lifestyle and financial context. This will be illustrated with actual case studies. The situations to be covered include:
  • Options at retirement – Which one to take?
  • Buying back service – does it make sense?
  • Canada/Quebec Pension Plan – when to start?
  • Special situations – plan windups and redesigns.

    Barry LaValley
    The Wealth Management Approach – More than just money
      
    Wealth Management is perhaps the fastest growing "brand" that advisors are using on both sides of the border. Yet, it is a misunderstood term. In this presentation Barry LaValley will talk about what true wealth management is and how an advisor can use the approach to create a relationship with clients that will resonate. This session is not about life planning, but about how the advisor can really gain an understanding of the needs and concerns of clients. Barry LaValley's approach to marketing and the discovery process, drawn from his book "Put the Life into your Practice-The wealth management approach" has proven to be very successful and is used by advisors and firms to implement the wealth management approach.

    Behaving Your Way to Investment Success
      
    When it comes to making investment decisions, emotions often get in the way, causing investors to make choices that aren't always aligned with their long-term goals. A prime example can be found in the surprisingly small percentage of non-Canadian content held in client portfolios. Despite the elimination of foreign content limits, investors in general still seem reluctant to invest internationally. We'll look at the reasons why investing in international markets makes sense, along with some ideas around how to frame the discussion with your clients. Making appropriate asset allocation decisions, including the level of exposure to foreign markets, requires continued discipline. For those clients who worry about emotions getting in the way, we'll explore how portfolio solutions can help you keep your clients on track.

    The Straight Goods on Individual Pension Plans
      
    The co-presenters will set the stage with what an IPP can and cannot do. IPPs generally provide a qualified person more deductibility than a pure RRSP but it doesn't play by the same rules. The presentation will chart out the pluses and minuses, when does it best make sense to look at an IPP, and a brief look at the history and steps CRA has taken to control IPPs.

    Canada's Public Pensions
      
    Faced with an ageing society and a doubling of the senior population by the year 2030, recent research has found that Canadians:
  • Do not understand the Retirement Income System
  • Do not know the details of Old Age Security and the Canada Pension Plan
  • Do not do much retirement planning
  • Do not include public pensions as part of their retirement planning
    In past years, SDC Income Security Programs concentrated on educating seniors about benefits available to them. Recently we developed a new way of doing business. Outreach Information Officers are reaching out to all Income Security Programs Contributors, with the goal of providing them with information that will help them to:
  • Understand public pensions and have confidence in them
  • Understand the role of public pensions in the overall income system
  • Take action towards their retirement goals
    Your Service Canada Centre located in the North Shore which serves North & West Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast and Howe Sound, houses an Outreach Officer who concentrates mainly on outreach activities in these communities as well as the Tri-Cities, Maple Ridge and Northern British Columbia.

    Introducing Estate Planning to your Clients
      
    This session is developed around a book authored by the speaker called "Where there's a Will there's a Way". This is an easy to read and understand book on Estate Planning designed for the general public. The book is filled with real-life stories and examples of how estate planning works. "Where there's a Will there's a Way" includes a workbook section that helps to organize your client's data for a proper estate plan. The work book section also makes the book an invaluable organizational tool for your client's to keep and maintain. For example, there is a section on the "Duties of an Executor" that is an essential document for anyone who has been appointed to be an executor. Utilizing the book as a method of introducing clients to Estate Planning, puts the Financial Planner in the quarterback position to develop the estate planning strategies and co-ordinate the estate planning team's efforts. This is a great way to add value to your practice and for your clients. It is smart way to be introduced to the next generation to own your clients assets. Furthermore, it helps build professional relationships with centers of influence such as Lawyers and Accountants that specialize in estate planning.

  • reduce the tax burden resulting from loans received by shareholders from their corporations
  • create cash in a client's corporation for investment purposes
  • create interest deductibility through use of a holding company
  • enable a significant donation to charity while eliminating the Canada Revenue Agency as a stakeholder in the client's estate, and leaving the client's heirs better off at the same time
  • minimize the impact of the U.S. estate tax, which will be a significant issue for U.S. citizen clients in particular, but for non-U.S. citizen clients as well. The strategies presented by Tim will involve the use of corporations and trusts, and will also involve advanced corporate reorganizations such as estate freezes. All of this will be explained in easy-to-understand language.

Coming into effect December 31, 2005, the CAP Guidelines affect DC Pension Plans, Group RRSPs, Group RESPs and DPSPs. A major impetus of the Guidelines is to provide plan members with investment advice so that they can make informed investment decisions. This is where you come in. Plan sponsors may outsource this responsibility to a qualified service provider. You are a qualified service provider. This session will review the guidelines, the reasons they were created and how they are creating a fantastic opportunity for an independent advisor to pursue a side of the business and provide needed independence and expertise.

    An Adventurer's Guide to The Importance of Risk Management
      
    Using images and tales from a decade of advantures including expeditions to Everest, Arabia, the Arctic, Africa, Hong Kong, Bhutan, Iceland, Greenland & Borneo, Bruce highlights the fundamentals of risk management and shares specific lessons learned in the high stakes wilderness arena. He reminds us that risk is dynamic, but also that a culture of safety is necessary; he also provides ways to spot and avoid human error, telling us to not focus only on big hazards that, actually, most big accidents are the result of a culmination of small mistakes. His scenarios ranging from ice climbing, rafting, kayaking, camel riding, and hostage taking are used to show that with preparation and planning, seemingly intolerable risks can be overcome, a key to success on nearly every major project. Bruce acts as a guide on how to determine risk and to act accordingly from there. "The greatest hazard in life," he says, "is to risk nothing at all."
