Can We Help You?

Insurance structures and products are designed for the long term but sometimes circumstances change.  If you would like a review of your insurance requirements and product portfolio, we would be pleased to assist.

We are frequently asked to assist in planning around such concerns as insurance trusts, creditor proofing, probate and capital gains tax, marital contracts, equity amongst family , charitable giving and shareholder agreements.  We welcome your enquiry.

Business Succession – Ours and Yours

First York

As much as we preach sound business succession planning to our clients, we have recognized the need to build our own plan to provide continuity of service and advice to our valued clients.

We would be happy to share our personal experience as well as the wisdom gained from our many years working with first, second, third and fourth generation families with every imaginable problem, business and life goal.
