If you’ve made the decision to invest some of your money, you may be wondering which option will offer you the best bang for your buck. Two of the most popular choices among investors are mutual funds and segregated fund policies

What are mutual funds and segregated funds?

Mutual Funds

Mutual funds let investors pool their money together in a fund that’s managed by a qualified investment firm. It’s a process that diversifies your investments, potentially limiting your exposure to market fluctuations. For many people, it’s a very attractive investment option because it’s cost-effective and can be customized to your unique risk tolerance.

Advantages of mutual funds

  • Lower fees: Mutual funds don’t have the insurance guarantees segregated funds have, but that’s why they’re a lot cheaper to purchase.
  • Variety of investment options: There are many different types of mutual funds, which means it’s possible to create an investment package to match your specific risk tolerance. 

Segregated Funds

A segregated fund  policy is similar – like mutual funds, there’s a pooling of investments. But unlike mutual funds, a segregated fund policy includes insurance guarantees that can protect much or even all your original investment.

Advantages of segregated funds

  • Maturity guarantees: One benefit of a segregated fund policy is that they include guarantees between 75% or 100% to your original investment. 
  • Death benefit guarantees: A segregated fund policy also comes with a death benefit guarantee. This means your named beneficiary (or beneficiaries) will receive either the market value of your investments or the guaranteed amount, whichever is higher at the time of your death.

RETIREMENT PLANNING

Retirees who have prepared for their retirement usually rely upon three main sources of income: Social Security, individual or employer-sponsored retirement plans, and their own personal savings or investments.

Together with our advisors, you can create a strategy in combining these elements effectively and with purpose.  We will tailor the retirement solutions to fit your families needs and aspirations as we develop your retirement roadmap together.

ESTATE PLANNING

It takes more than just retirement planning to preserve and enhance your wealth. We will work with you to ensure we maximize and protect your wealth in order to ensure it will pass to future generations efficiently. 

Our team will help you to navigate items pertaining to your unique family situation, which may include: 

  • Planning your Will
  • Ensuring Tax Considerations are Monitored
  • Enhance Philanthropic Endeavors
  • Take into consideration the Estate Recipients and their personal situation.

All segregated funds allow your beneficiaries to receive your money without having those funds flow through your estate. That means the money in your policy won’t be reduced by taxes and the fees associated with settling an estate. It also means your beneficiaries will get the money faster, since segregated funds policies are usually paid out to beneficiaries within a few weeks of the paperwork being filed.

In comparison, you can also arrange to have your registered mutual funds savings passed on to your beneficiaries when you die. If your beneficiary is your spouse, those savings will be transferred to them quickly, though other types of beneficiaries – such as friends or charities – may have to wait longer.
