Toronto, Ontario (June 15, 2017) – The Empire Life Insurance Company (Empire Life) (TSX: EML.PR.A) today launched Life & Money Matters, a new website to educate Canadians on financial planning and investments. The site answers the most common questions Canadians have at different life stages about life and money, and helps them connect with a licensed life insurance advisor in their area who can help them with their investment questions and needs.
The site has articles, videos, tools and calculators to help Canadians better understand their personal situation and how to navigate through it. For consumers seeking advice or help with their investments or financial plan, the website offers a “Find-an-Advisor” feature.
“Research confirms that investors with an advisor accumulate 3.9 times more assets than those who do not have an advisor*,” says Mike Stocks, Vice-President and Chief Marketing Officer. “We hope to help more Canadians get answers to their most common questions and connect them with an advisor to improve their savings,” says Stocks.
According to a 2016 LIMRA research study, consumers grade themselves with a class average of a C when posed with the question of evaluating if they will be able to save enough money to have a comfortable retirement.** "27% of consumers give themselves a failing grade when it comes to saving for retirement and many of them feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start,” says Stocks. The Life & Money Matters website provides a great resource to help Canadians get started and find answers to their questions about life and money.
