High net worth investors (those who are fortunate to have upwards of a million dollars in investable assets) have the most to gain from a comprehensive financial plan that addresses their unique needs and wishes.  From tax-efficient wealth-building to estate planning, Andrew explains his processes and strategies - all through a commission-free product-sales-free lens as a proudly objective financial planner.

Jason Heath

Managing your LIRA and LIF

Defined contribution (DC) pensions and locked-in retirement accounts (LIRAs) have unique nuances for account holders to consider. Although they are similar to registered retirement savings plans (RRSPs), there are distinct differences. 

Jason will focus on topics to include:

  • What is the difference between an RRSP and a LIRA?
  • What happens to my pension if I leave a job and start another, or when I retire?
  • What are the rules around withdrawing from a LIRA?
  • How does a LIRA interact with an RRSP/RRIF and what happens to it in retirement?

This session will address tax, investment, and estate considerations for investors.


Melanie Ng - Lifestyle expert and former co-host/anchor of Breakfast Television

Making a career change

Many people contemplate a career change but simply don’t do it. Lifestyle expert and former co-host/anchor of Breakfast Television, Melanie Ng, discusses the considerations to think about before making your next move.


Ed Rempel

How to Design Your Retirement Income: An Overview

Certified Financial Planner (and multi-time Summit speaker) Ed Rempel takes us through the multiple ways to create your income in retirement.  Many Canadians understand they have to save and invest for retirement - but the more complicated part is actually deciding how to most efficiently withdraw that nest egg.  Learn the various ways you can create an income for yourself as you leave the workforce, along with some of the specific trade-offs to consider along the way.


Kyle Prevost & Kornel Szrejber

How Much Do You Need to Retire? Exploring the 4% Rule

Kyle and Kornel team up to explore the research behind why financial planners generally recommend taking out 4% of your nest egg per year in retirement.  We’ll explore the math behind how a retirement would have went if someone had hit “eject” on their job right before the great depression or back-to-back recessions like in the 2000s.  Learn how to bulletproof your portfolio and gain the confidence that you need to create an automatic retirement paycheque system - one that doesn’t leave you wondering if you should’ve worked one more year, or if you’ll run out of money one day.

Kornel Szrejber
