Individual and business owner financial planning

The successful integration of both the short and long term goals and needs of one’s family with the short and long term goals and needs of the business is crucial to the overall success of an integrated financial plan. gfcu’s Business Wealth Specialists are experienced at looking at the big picture, and follow a widely accepted process that assists individuals and families to plan for a better, more stable and prosperous financial future. gfcu’s unique business-owner Roadmap process helps to ensure the important questions are asked, and solutions determined; and annual reviews help to ensure your plans stay on track.

Group Retirement Savings Plan

A competitive retirement program can be an attractive benefit and the key to retaining valuable employees. gfcu can help you choose from a wide range of registered and non-registered retirement planning options that are both cost-effective and flexible.

Group Benefits Plans

Implementing a group benefit program is an excellent way to show your staff that you appreciate their efforts. Your business can provide valuable group life and health benefits for your staff, regardless of the size of your company – even if you have only two or three employees. Typical group benefit plans include: life, disability and critical illness insurance, dental insurance, extended health care insurance, employee assistance programs, and health care spending accounts.

Protecting your business: life and disability insurance

A little planning goes a long way when it comes to protecting your business from the loss of key employees, developing a succession strategy or protecting yourself with comprehensive life and disability insurance. At gfcu, our experts can provide the advice you need to ensure you’re properly covered. Our insurance solutions can also provide a tax-sheltered environment for corporate investments, help you attract quality staff, help fund your retirement and even maximize the value of your estate.

Tax Efficient Investment Solutions

If your company is investing excess profits into GICs or other taxable investments, these funds are often called “trapped” corporate surplus because you pay high personal tax if you remove the capital from the corporation, and you pay high corporate tax if you leave it in. gfcu’s Business Wealth Specialists can tailor investment solutions for your business that address tax minimization and tax deferral, while ensuring investment suitability and risk appropriateness.
