6 Ways a Financial Planner Can Help

1.Get You Through Cash Crunches

Has your income taken a hit with parental leave? Your financial planner can give you advice on how to manage through tighter times and strategies for catching up after things settle down.

2.Present Smart Borrowing Options

If you need to use credit to cover a reduction of income or the increased costs of parenthood, your financial planner can show you the best ways to borrow.

3.Revisit Your Investment Plan

Whether you want to adjust your contributions or start investing in a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP), your financial planner can revise your plan to accommodate your new priorities.
