Comprehensive Financial Planning

A comprehensive financial plan can help determine your financial needs not only for today but also for the future.

Free Consultation

Our service begins with a free consultation, which will provide you with an assessment of your current situation and identify areas you should be focusing on. After that, drawing on our expertise in financial planning, we’ll create a precise plan detailing how you can reach all your financial goals. You will learn how to:

  • Take advantage of retirement savings plans
  • Use RRSPs effectively
  • Establish an appropriate cash reserve
  • Invest new savings
  • Develop an educational savings plan for your kids
  • Make comfortable decisions about investment risk
  • Adjust your current asset allocations
  • Establish a diversified portfolio of stock and bond mutual funds, including lists of recommended funds
  • Protect your goals in case you or your spouse dies

    Why Prepare a Written Plan?

    Financial planning isn’t reserved for those with big incomes or huge investment portfolios. The whole idea behind planning is to ensure that you’re doing everything that you can to accomplish your goals. The process of creating a written plan forces you to think through your financial objectives, the amount of risk you’re willing to assume and other key practices of sound investing.

    Anyone with a financial goal will benefit from the affordable and convenient financial planning offered by GP Wealth Management. With the help of a professional financial planner, you can develop a plan that is personal to you. It starts by downloading and completing a detailed financial planning questionnaire.

    Six Steps to Financial Planning

    Financial planning isn’t reserved for those with big incomes or investment portfolios. The whole idea behind planning is to ensure that you’re doing everything that you can to accomplish your goals. Here are the six steps to get you started.

    Setting Goals and Objectives

    Give some thought to your financial goals – some may be short-term in nature (buying a car), others long-term (planning for retirement). Assign each one a time frame and put them in order of importance to you. These goals are the building blocks of any sound financial plan.

    Data Gathering

    Begin by organizing your financial documents:

    • Investment statements
    • RRSP statements
    • Group Benefits Information
    • Latest Pension Information
    • Pay stub
    • Life insurance policies
    • Latest tax return
    • Mortgage information

    Assess your current financial situation by completing a Net Worth Statement and a Cash Flow Worksheet.


    Depending on the goals you have set out in Step 1, you and your financial planner will need to perform some further analysis to define a roadmap to help you achieve your goals. This may include analyzing your retirement, education, debt or insurance and estate planning needs.


    Now that you have established goals and objectives and your financial planner has analyzed your current situation, you will want to review the recommendations set forth by your financial planner. These recommendations represent the strategy towards attaining your goals. Very important stuff!


    Once the preparatory work of analyzing, determining and calculating is finished, the most important step is implementing the recommendations to ensure your goals are reached. This is where you and your financial planner execute the plan.

    Monitoring and Periodic Reviews

    Finally, monitoring and periodic reviews by both yourself and your financial planner are critical to ensuring your success. Your financial situation should be reassessed at least once a year to account for any changes in your situation. Achieving your goals and objectives are the ultimate measure of success and that is what a financial planner with GP Wealth Management will help you do.
