Are you ready to take control of your retirement planning? With our DIY Retirement Projections, you get access to user-friendly retirement planning software where you get to create your own plan!
That’s right – we encourage you to be your retirement planner!
And our fees are a fraction of the cost that some fee-only-planners charge since we do not offer advice, we do not have staff to maintain, we do not seek out assets under management but instead – we just want to provide a quality platform to support your retirement readiness.
Our Do-it-Yourself (DIY) Solution
As passionate DIY investors, we developed Cashflows and Portfolios as a value-add free resource for any Canadian to access anywhere anytime. That said, we know some DIY investors absolutely want to do more – including all the retirement planning and projections work themselves.
Using one of our low-cost solutions, now they can!
Example: Final Plan – Projections navigation menu.
What is it? You do your own plan. You control all the inputs, the data and the outcomes. We provide support.
Get unlimited access to our DIY Projections Solution via an online software platform where you can enter your own goals, financial numbers, and find out for yourself answers to pressing questions like: Do I have enough to retire? When could I retire? Will I run out of money in retirement – how fast will my portfolio go down in retirement? Create unlimited hypothetical scenarios (i.e., what if I sell my house this year or in 5 years) and update your plan as changes occur.
