Portfolio Analysis

Is the process of breaking down and studying an investment portfolio in order to determine both its appropriateness for a given investor's needs, preferences, and resources, and its probability of meeting the client’s goals. We would be pleased to complete a review of any existing portfolio you may have and compare its performance and appropriateness to our recommendation.

Insurance Analysis

It is just as important to ensure you are not over-insured as under-insured. We can analyse existing coverage by understanding your personal circumstances including:

  • Age
  • Marital status
  • Dependents
  • Health history
  • Income – percentage required by family in case of death
  • Desired retirement age
