OUR SPECIALITY

FINANCIAL PLANNING FOR PERSONAL AND INCORPORATED BUSINESS

  • Why do you need a Financial Plan?
  • – Worry less about money and gain control.

    – Organize your finances.

    – Prioritize your goals.

    – Focus on the big picture.

    – Save money to reach your goals.

    For an incorporated professional, personal and practice finances are connected. Therefore both sides should be addressed: personal and your practice.

  • What does a Financial Plan for an Incorporated Professional include?
  • There are 2 main sides your practice’s financial plan should address: Growth and Preservation

     

    Growth:

    – Cash Management- Managing Cash & Debt

    – Tax Planning- Finding tax efficiencies

    – Health Benefits

     

    Preservation:

    – Investment- either back into the business or outside of the business

    – Insurance Planning/Risk Management

    – Retirement Planning

  • A few things to keep in mind for professionals are:
  • – Professionals are typically in the highest income tax bracket, therefore incorporating their practice can help manage and defer taxes at a lower corporate tax rate.

    – By incorporating- professionals can have access to dividends from their corporation, shareholder loans, corporately held life insurance and since money can be left inside a corporation- this money can be used in years where there are life changes such as pregnancy, buying a home or retirement.

    – Professionals should also ensure that they have access to health benefits.

    – Debt for a professional is not unusual, given the costs of education and equipment, therefore working with an advisor and accountant can help an incorporated professional find a way to balance their cash flow.

  • What does a Personal Financial Plan include?
  • There are 2 main sides your financial plan should address: Accumulation and Protection

     

    Accumulation:

    – Cash Management – Savings and Debt

    – Tax Planning

    – Investments

     

    Protection:

    – Insurance Planning

    – Health Insurance

    – Estate Planning

  • What’s the Financial Planning Process?
  • – Establish and define the financial planner-client relationship.

    – Gather information about current financial situation and goals including lifestyle goals.

    – Analyze and evaluate current financial status.

    – Develop and present strategies and solutions to achieve goals.

Knowledgeable, Passionate and Pro-active

LZ and NZ
<em>We started working with Gord a few years ago when we were experiencing a lot of frustration with another advisor, specifically around our life and critical illness insurance (personal and corporate/key-person). Gord helped us sort everything out and has been advising us on our investments ever since. He is knowledgeable, passionate and proactive, and he genuinely cares about his clients. We feel we’re in good hands with Gord and Charter Wealth.</em>

Uncommon breadth of knowledge

LN
I have known and dealt with Gordon Malic since 2002 and can personally attest to Gord’s skills, attributes and integrity. Gordon has a breadth of knowledge that is not common in the financial planning industry. There are many people who have expertise in a narrow range of financial subjects, but over the years I can confirm that Gord has in depth knowledge and experience in many financial areas, is an expert using life insurance as a solution and has a very good understanding of the Canadian taxation system. After all these years of dealing with him, I have found him to be at the top of his profession.

Trusted Advisors

Education

I’ll start off with Gord Malic is the best insurance advisor in the industry! I have known Gord for many years now, professionally and personally. Believe me when I tell you that if you are in the search for a person that will do what it takes day and night to give you the absolute best of himself and the financial services / insurance services,  Gord is the man. I have never witnessed or known someone to put in the hours that Gord does in the office. For Gord his career seems to be a more of a hobby rather than work, this kind of dedication is why he is just so knowledgeable and advanced in his area of expertise.  Every time I had concerns or questions Gord was able to really explain and get back to me in a respectable time frame. Over the course of many years that I’ve been privileged to know Gord he has become someone that I truly look up too, for myself being a man in his mid 20’s I’ve had lots to learn from Gord. We all have lots to learn from Gord.
