working
for you.

Our family-owned brokerage focuses on finding an ideal insurance and investment solution to fit your personal or corporate needs. We strive to deliver service that is over and above your expectations.

Insurance


We offer a wide range of insurance products from multiple insurance companies; including but not limited to: Life Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance, Disability Insurance, and Long-Term Care Insurance.

volpe-icon-lifeinsurance

Life Insurance
 

Life insurance can be used to provide financial security and income for those you name as beneficiary, pay any debts and final expenses, or leave a legacy for future generations or charitable organizations that you care about.

volpe-icon-criticalillness

CRITICAL ILLNESS
INSURANCE

Helps you to better cope with the financial and non-financial concerns that you and your family could face. Critical Illness Insurance Pays a Lump Sum Cash Benefit When You Are Diagnosed With a Critical Illness.

volpe-icon-disabilityinsurance

DISABILITY
INSURANCE

Disability insurance offers income protection to individuals who become disabled for a long period of time, and as a result can no longer work during that time period. We offer short and long term plans.

Wealth
Management


Wealth management combines both financial planning and specialized financial services, including personal retail needs analysis, estate planning, legal and tax advice, and investment management services. The goal of wealth management is to sustain and grow long-term wealth.

volpe-icon-segregatedfunds-1

Segregated
Funds

Unlike mutual funds, segregated funds provide a guarantee to protect part of the money you invest (75% to 100%). Even if the underlying fund loses money, you are guaranteed to get back some or all of your principal investment.

volpe-icon-etf-1

ETF /
Digital Finance

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund that’s traded on a stock exchange, like a stock, but holds a basket of investments, like a mutual fund. Most ETFs track broad, well-established indices like the S&P 500 or TSX.

volpe-icon-annuities-1

Annuities

In return for a lump sum payment, an insurance company agrees to provide either a lifetime stream of income, the right to withdraw up to a certain percentage per year, or even an elevated lump sum payment at some future time.

volpe-icon-mutualfunds

Mutual
Funds

You can think of a mutual fund as a company that brings together a group of people and invests their money on their behalf in this portfolio. Each investor owns shares of the mutual fund, which represent a portion of its holdings.

Group
Benefits


While Canada’s national healthcare program gives Canadians access to doctors and emergency medical treatment, it doesn’t cover everything. In fact, some new drug treatments can have very high costs. A group benefits plan helps to ensure your employees and their dependents are adequately protected.

volpe-icon-dental

Health & Dental

Without a benefits plan, employees must pay for day-to-day health, dental and prescription drug expenses with after-tax income. Employee benefit plans can be designed to cover these expenses using before-tax income—leaving more money in your employees’ pockets.

volpe-icon-groupdisability-1

Group Disability

Group disability benefits ensure your investment is protected in case an employee becomes sick or injured.

volpe-icon-group

Group RRSPs

A well-designed group benefits package can help to make your business more competitive, recruit top talent, retain employees and boost employee satisfaction and maintain productivity.
