What do you wish your parents’ generation understood about you & your money?

Things have changed since our parents were navigating the financial decisions that would help shape their adult lives. 

Millennials and zillenials are navigating a laundry list of challenges that are impacting their lives in ways their parents never had to:

  • Increased student debt and longer repayment periods after graduating from post-secondary education
  • Skyrocketing housing prices that make it difficult, and sometimes impossible, for many to enter the housing market and become homeowners
  • The ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including economic challenges such as rising inflation and cost of living

These examples illustrate just a few of the factors that shape the financial decision-making process for the next generation of adults. Unlike previous generations, they face these challenges at a later stage in life and at a higher cost.

For many of us, this means our parents were able to think about and plan for their long-term futures sooner and with greater returns on their investments.  

Many people tell me they want to make progress on their financial planning and life insurance journeys, but don’t know where to get started. Have questions? Get in touch! You can email me at danielle@allanfinancial.com or call me at 604.688.9151.

What do you know about life insurance?

It’s common not to think about life insurance until later in life. But if you wait until you “need” life insurance, it can be more expensive and challenging to get. When insurance companies look at your life insurance application, they look at age and health as key factors. 

The younger and healthier you are when you apply for insurance, the better your chances of securing a policy at a more affordable rate. 

We’re known for our custom life insurance solutions

What if you and your family could experience life insurance that would help you enjoy your life today? 

Our recommendations typically involve a life insurance product called universal life. Universal life gives you flexible payment options. It can also allow you to to build up an investment account within your insurance policy. The money you put into your policy covers the costs and any excess funds grow sheltered inside your policy account.

It’s never too early to start your life insurance journey. Have questions about what this could mean for you? Get in touch! You can email me at danielle@allanfinancial.com or call me at 604.688.9151.

Cleaning & Greening

You can take control no matter your stage of life!

Have you heard of Swedish death cleaning? It’s not about finding out what items “sparks joy” but rather making sure we’re not leaving a mess behind for those we love. Surprisingly, doing this can lead to treasures and experiences to be enjoyed now!

We also got into the nitty gritty of the green end-of-life options, what you can do about it now, and why you may want to reconsider what you think you know about your choices.

Disclaimer: We are not lawyers, and this shouldn’t be taken as legal advice. And remember that we’re usually referring to how things are in BC, Canada, so things might be different where you are.

Meet Chriselle

Peace of mind, designed specifically for you

Life insurance is not usually something that most people either really understand or care too much about. I love that I can change that – by creating a plan that is truly unique and designed just for them. I hope this not only brings peace of mind but also a personal touch.
