Challenges

  • Two co-owners operating a home decor wholesale company in their early 50s
  • Both were busy managing the business, which had grown quickly over the past decade
  • $8.5 million in investable assets under personal and holding companies, across multiple financial institutions
  • Primary goal was to consolidate finances and retire comfortably in 5 to 10 years                                                                                 

Recommendations   

  • Consolidate accounts and streamline investment holdings from over 50 to 20. Objective is to improve economies of scale and allow better visibility over investments
  • Update portfolio to focus on wealth protection and cost efficiency
  • Review business succession planning and tax planning with TD Specialists
  • Create service matrix that includes monthly communication and quarterly portfolio review. Objective is to allow client to tune out noise and focus on their end goals

Results
