Having a Contingency Plan in place is vitally important to any business in which the owner plays an active role. Without a well thought-out game plan, the consequences to key stakeholders (family, clients and estate) in the business are dire.
The impact of your sudden and unexpected departure from the business due to death, disability or extended leave of absence from the business can be disastrous. As a professional, it’s your responsibility to make every attempt possible to ensure a plan is in place to protect everyone’s interest.
The objective of a Contingency Plan is to make sure your heirs know what you would like them to do with the business in the event you can’t do it yourself. It can involve negotiating something as simple as a letter of understanding or the drafting of a legally binding buy & sell agreement funded with life insurance. Whatever approach you choose, the main objective is to make sure there is a plan to follow if a triggering event occurs.
It’s also imperative in this process that you communicate the details of your plan with your executor or legal representative and include a copy with your estate documents.
When you’re investing, it’s nice to have options that provide the potential for a nice return, while at the same time, some protection of your initial investment. That’s what Segregated Funds offer. Segregated funds are an investment product that provides insurance protection. They can invest in different types of assets, like mutual funds, bonds, real estate and stocks.
Segregated funds provide a guarantee for you to get back some or your entire principal, at maturity. To do so, you need to hold the funds for a specific amount of time. Segregated funds also offer creditor protection and you can minimize probate taxes through beneficiary or beneficiaries you designate.
GICs AND GIAs
GICs offer you a guaranteed rate of return over a fixed period of time and are usually issued by trust companies or banks. GICs are protected up to $100,000 by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Guaranteed Interest Annuities (GIAs) are similar to GICs as they offer a fixed rate of return, but they are sold as life insurance contracts. GIAs are also protected up to $100,000 by Assuris.
By making a single lump-sum investment, an annuity can ensure you receive a stable stream of income for life, or for a specific time period. An annuity can guarantee you income for your entire life, providing you with some peace of mind. With an annuity, you don’ have to worry about market ups and downs impacting your retirement savings.
Several payment guarantee options are available to ensure the income continues to your spouse or other designated beneficiaries, if you pass away prematurely. These options can guarantee a minimum amount is paid out of the annuity, no matter what happens to you. You can also choose to index your annuity income, to help guard against inflation. In addition, non-registered annuities can offer significant tax advantages.
