Darren Ulmer, CFP, CHS, Elite Partner Advisor at Sun Life Financial, Global Professional Speaker, and Author, will provide an update on the status of DB plans in Canada (whatever happened to my dad’s DB plan?). He will explore how DPSP plans seem to be replacing DCPP plans and why. He will also share information around “fees” in group RSP plans versus personal plans and how to communicate that value to employees. Lastly, he will discuss the growth of TFSA’s inside of group savings plans. Darren’s presentation, as well as promising to be current, promises to be very entertaining!
