Planning Your Retirement
TFSA (Tax Free Savings Account) is a very under-utilized investment vehicle by Canadians. One of the reasons why individuals do not invest in TFSA is it does not give you a tax deduction instantly, but they fail to realize that over a long-term horizon the growth amount is more than the principal amount. For example, if you invest $ 25000 when your age is 35 and if the rate of return is 8% the value of your portfolio at the 65 will be more than $200K. Here you can see that the growth amount is $175K and that is almost 7 times of the original principal amount.
Let’s understand how the tax rules will apply on $25,000 invested in TFSA, RRSP and non-registered (Open account only).
TFSA: Final Value of portfolio $200K = Zero tax
RRSP: Final Value of portfolio $200K 47.5% Tax =$95,000 (Approx.)
Open: Final Value of portfolio $200K 50% of Capital Gain Tax = $ 41,000 (Approx.)

WHAT CLIENTS SAY
REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
My insurance needs are very unique. I was also on a very limited budget. I had shopped around a little but all I was getting were raw quotes with no great details. I was later referred to Peel Financial Services and I got my perfect insurance.
There were so many options to choose from. Even though I am very healthy I just wanted to make sure I was starting at the right time. I'm happy with the insurance package I finally chose out of several great options presented to me.
I felt I had to reach my 40's to start considering life insurance. After doing a little research I realized the benefits of being insured even at a very healthy age. I love the rates I got. Thanks!
