Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple - we want to get to know you to help you make the best decisions possible. This goes back to our roots when Alphonse Desjardins (1854 – 1920), our founder, set about his idea for a “people’s bank.” His idea was simple – to provide financial services to working people. On December 6, 1900, Desjardins opened its doors for the first time. Today, Desjardins Group is the largest financial cooperative in Canada and the second strongest financial institution globally (Bloomberg 2014).

Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network (DFSIN) is a national network of financial advisors specializing in life and health insurance and investments. Its counterpart SFL Partner of Desjardins Financial Security in Quebec and New Brunswick.

Our focus is to understand your goals and develop a plan to reach them. We will meet with you to present an analysis and discuss recommendations. Together, we will implement the recommendations best for you and monitor your progress toward your goals, and when necessary, we will adjust your financial plan.

In an ever-changing world, we are committed to staying up to date on tax and estate laws to provide you with the best financial advice for your specific situation.

Our Process

A strong planning process is crucial to create a financially secure plan that seeks to protect your needs now and for the future in a tax-efficient manner. My goal is to assist you in building a solid financial structure that will stand the test of time and grow and build wealth for you and your family.

I have established a process to do this based on two key aspects of financial security: asset protection and wealth creation. A plan must help ensure financial security throughout your life for you and your loved ones. It must provide income replacement and asset protection if the unthinkable were to happen: disability, critical illness, or death. The plan must also aim to build the maximum it can via a solid, tax-efficient wealth portfolio.

With these goals in mind, we will work together to assess your total financial planning needs. We will consider important milestones such as major purchases, marriage, children, education, dreams, and retirement. This plan will entail a regular review of ongoing financial management strategies.

This goal-based financial planning approach is designed to help you:

  • Define customized short and long-term goals that ensure you choose only the right financial products and services
  • Identify roadblocks or gaps that might impact your financial planning strategy
  • Continually monitor your plan to ensure it meets your changing needs

Contact us to find out more about my financial planning process and learn how a sound financial plan can help you achieve your goals.

What is Financial Security Planning?

Financial Security planning is about more than preparing for retirement. It’s about working to achieve short- and long-term goals and helping protect the most important things in your life.

As a financial services professional, I will work with you to create a plan that includes solid insurance and investment products and is flexible enough to meet your changing needs.

The first step to achieving financial security is creating a strong financial strategy. We will work together to prepare a plan that helps you:

  • Prepare for a secure, comfortable retirement or minimize your current taxes
  • Pro-actively manage and control debt, from major purchases to preparing for a child’s post-secondary education
  • Provide for your loved ones or heirs in the event of death, disability, or critical illness
  • Protect your business and your employees through affordable benefits

Million Dollar Round Table

About the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT)

"As a proud life member of the Million Dollar Round Table with ten plus qualifying years, I offer my clients the confidence of best business practices"

- Kusum Sen

MDRT History

In 1927, 32 extraordinary life insurance producers, each of whom had sold at least USD 1 million of life insurance, dreamed of a forum dedicated to fostering a high-standard, professional approach to life insurance sales and service. Founded on the belief that growth is a result of exchanging ideas, the concept was:

"To receive, individuals must give."

Out of this dream emerged MDRT — an international, independent association representing the world's best sales professionals in the life insurance-based financial services industry.

As a positive influence in the life insurance industry, MDRT has developed a rich tradition of sharing knowledge to benefit clients, prospects, producers, and companies.
