Since the Great Recession of 2008, families across Canada and the globe have been eyeing their investment portfolios with extreme caution. When you invest in your future, you understand that there will be good times and bad. It comes with the territory. Just like watching the weather forecast in anticipation of its effect on your crops, eyeing the stock market can keep you sitting on the edge of your seat or wringing your hands. Will you have a bumper crop in both areas or will you experience a bust? The difference between the two is that you have the power to make necessary changes to your financial planning to ensure your family and farm are here for generations to come.
At Thomson, Schindle, Green Insurance, and Financial Services (TSG), we provide financial planning, insurance services, and insurance quotes to Canadian farmers throughout Alberta. Our knowledgeable team will meet with you at one of our convenient locations, chat about your current situation, and discuss options to bring back your peace of mind.
Options to Keep the Family Farm
When you opened your latest investment statement, did your heart sink? Are you starting to worry that your stocks, bonds, and other financial vehicles are taking a harder hit than you can recover from? Avoid giving into frustration. Talk to an experienced TSG broker to get the insight and plan of action you need to make the best decision for your family.
Here are a few areas we can assist you with:
- Assessing Future Transitions: We are here to help you with making the best decisions for your farming business such as crop inputs, purchasing new machinery, and even switching ownership as you age. You can read more here.
- Worst-Case Scenario Prevention: No one can stare into a crystal ball and know what their future holds. So, if you have employees, you should consider carrying Worker’s Comprehension insurance in the event of injury while on the job. If you prematurely pass away, it is critical that you have plans in place for your family to keep the farm going. Planning for the worst while expecting the best is a smart move.
- Being in Your Corner: You provide a fantastic service to your community, province, and country. Everyone can benefit from having someone to back them with advice and products that keep your farm or ranch protected.
