The Value of Advice
Many Canadians believe they do not have enough assets to seek the advice of an advisor. This is far from the truth at Fransen Financial. Numerous studies have validated the fact that professional advice works for investors of all circumstances. To secure a healthy financial future for yourself and your family at all stages of life, it’s important to address a number of major issues that will ultimately help reduce financial stress, plan appropriately for your situation and, most importantly, grow your net worth. Aaron is here to help you navigate these challenges and help you stay on track.
Aaron’s whole wealth approach to retirement income planning will answer what is on most Canadian’s minds when it comes to retirement income planning and portfolio management:
- “When will I be able to retire?”
- “How much can I spend?”
- “How much do I have to save?”
- “What rate of return do I need to earn?”
Since May 2018, Worldsource Financial Management has been a valued partner of Aaron and Fransen Financial. Worldsource Financial Management works with advisors like Aaron who have built their clientele on a strong foundation of one-on-one relationships and the highest level of trust.
