Wealth Preservation and Transfer Seminar

July 31, 2017 Leave a comment

More than half of Canadians expect to leave assets upon their death however, 47% of survey respondents indicated that they have not had wealth transfer planning conversations with family members and/or a financial advisor (CIBC survey). More alarming is that 79% indicated they haven’t discussed the financial and tax implications of an inheritance with a financial advisor. For business owners, things could get more complicated – negatively impacting the value of the business.
The Ismaili Business Professionals Association (IBPA) in partnership with the Finance and Accounting Professionals Alliance of Ontario (FAPA) have organized a wealth transfer seminar that will cover business succession and estate planning, best practices and approaches to succession planning, identify unforeseen complexities during planning and implementation, scenarios where litigation may arise and potential solutions for effective transfer of wealth. Our panel of experts includes Tom McCullough, Stella Gasparro, Nizar Kanji and Feroz Ali Jessani

When: Sunday, September 10
Location: Ismaili Centre Toronto – Social Hall (49 Wynford Drive, Toronto)
Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM (includes lunch)
