“Most advisors only look at part of your financial plan when it comes to preparing for the future. Very few consider the big picture. I offer a clear strategy that works for every life stage so you can feel confident about your finances, and stay on track for the retirement you envisioned.”

“Russ took over my family’s insurance portfolio several years ago. He is an excellent insurance advisor. He is professional, organized, knowledgeable and provided us with a detailed insurance plan to cover my family’s needs. He and his assistant Ardella are also extremely responsive when it comes to taxes and other maintenance issue related to our insurance portfolio. Importantly, Russ is not pushy when it comes to selling insurance products and in fact, advised me not to over-insure, a true sign of his honesty and integrity. Unfortunately, last year I had to submit a claim. Russ was once again organized and walked me through every step. He dealt with the insurance company and ensured everything was in order. The claim paid out without any delay or complications. I highly recommend Russ Young and his team for insurance and estate planning.”

Hi Russ,

I would sincerely like to thank you for your help with my disability claim. The entire process was very smooth and seamless. I received my approval notice less than a month after submitting the required documentation, and your input and advice regarding the submission process was most helpful.

The monthly cheques I will receive will significantly reduce my financial stress now that I am only able to work part time.

The critical illness insurance was also very helpful when I was initially diagnosed, and the process of claiming was smooth and painless. The money I received allowed me to investigate alternative treatment options which really gave me the feeling of doing everything I possibly could to deal with my illness.

The regular meetings with you to ensure the ideal policies were in place for our changing lives, provided peace of mind and one less thing to worry about in these hectic times.

Thanks again for your help Russ.

Russ has been our personal financial advisor for more than 20 years.  Russ has played a vital role in developing our personal financial well-being.  He regularly provides updates and meets with us to review our situation and to make suggestions on any improvements he thinks he can make.

Joan and I have trusted Russ to manage all of our investments since 1998. In
that time we have come to respect all the decisions that he has made on our
behalf and now entering retirement we know that we are in very good hands
with The Young Financial Group.

TFSA vs RRSP – 2024

When looking to save money in a tax-efficient manner, Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSA) and Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSP) can offer significant tax benefits. The main difference between the two is that TFSAs are ideal for short-term goals, such as saving for a down payment on a house or a vacation, as its growth is entirely tax-free, while RRSPs are more suitable for long-term goals such as retirement.
