Family Life Planning:

To have a successful succession plan it is very important to get your entire family involved in the process.
Everyone wants to do what is best for their loved ones, but how do you know what is best for your family if you
never ask them what is important to them. We continue to develop a process to better assist our clients and their
families in reaching a common goal for family financial life planning.


We have been initiating our goals to helping our clients in protecting their family, estate and assets. These steps
can be as simple as making sure your Wills and Power of Attorney are in place to a Financial Plan to Life
Insurance. We will continue to develop new solutions to new circumstances as they arise with our clients and
family. Our goal is to help our clients make decisions to reach their goals in family financial life planning.

Growing technologically, professionally and personally:

At the end of April Roman & Emily attended the “Insightful Wealth Conference” where they learned how to
streamline our processes in order to better assist our clients with their needs. Chelsey, Emily & Roman have
updated their knowledge with learning Maximizer and Windows 7 to further better our service for clients and
more efficiently. Emily, Chelsey & Stephen have also kept up to date with courses in order to be able to better
service our clients’ needs and be able to answer questions they may have. Our office has also attended various
Community Events which help support youth, our future leaders, in our community. We would like to give
thanks to our clients who came out to support Rob’s Run for Kids at Merritt Island on May 10th.

Roman recently attended the Leaders Council with Dynamic Funds where he got the opportunity to spend
time with award‐winning portfolio managers and heard their opinions on the markets and their portfolios, as
well learned why a legitimately active approach is a winning approach. He had the privilege to meet and hear
from Chris Hadfield, military pilot, astronaut and commander of the International Space Station, who reflected
on his time in orbit, on earth and how to make the impossible a reality. Key message learned was “Plan To Fail”,
this way when a failure occurs you are prepared to address the failure with positive results.

What’s New?

We here at our HollisWealth office on Thorold Road, additionally will be providing more service with regards to
debt management. We are investing in our clients by upgrading our skills in this area. With more and more
Canadians now retiring in debt, mostly because the system is set up so we’ll do just that, we want to ensure that
our clients don’t end up part of that statistic. So we are putting this plan into action.

Tip of the Quarter:

When it comes to most people thinking of their finances, they first think of their investments, risk level,
diversification, etc.

Yes, investments for retirement, education, and wealth accumulation are important. But, are you always
conscious of the other areas of personal finances that are more important to your family’s security than rate of
return?

In our office, Roman and Stephen are here to help clients realize, and be aware of, the other areas that should be
addressed. Items such as: Wills and Powers of Attorney completed or updated, having the proper amount and
type of life insurance, Health and Dental insurance in place, ensuring your tax bill is as low as it could be,
Lifestyle Planning for Retirement, a cash‐flow and expense report in order to manage all the costs of these
responsibilities.

Our Team is here to coach, quarterback, and run the plays in order to ensure your game of life is a success.

It will be our pleasure and honour to help you!
