Vlad’s typical client would be a charitable minded individual or a couple looking to create a retirement plan and estate transfer strategies. Vlad helps his clients turn taxation into charitable donation. This approach is fully supported by Canadian Revenue Agency. There is a wide range of financial instruments and strategies that allow every Canadian to distribute their tax dollars to the registered charities that they personally support. The best examples would be properly structured life insurance policy or Registered Retirement Income Plan.
Vlad is well known among Ontario Environmental charities where he regularly conducts webinars and other educational events.
