Crystal Lodge - Emerald Room



Your financial wellbeing depends on making good decisions that fit your unique situation and goals. On Monday April 16th, Lighthouse Visionary Strategies and Squamish Savings present a hands-on workshop that will dole out real-world advice so you can make the most of what you have and plan for achieving your dreams for the future.

Wealth Planner Jennifer Underwood from Vancity will guide you to take control of your dollars to build a solid financial foundation and prepare for the big moments in life—travelling, retirement, buying a home, or leaving a legacy for the people and issues you care about.

This forum is not a sales pitch for services, but instead will offer a presentation jampacked with resources and tools, along with ample time so participants can start crafting their financial future in a provided workbook.

The two segments will offer:

Part 1: Budgeting to Achieve Your Goals & Dreams –  Learn how to make the most of your money by making wise decisions when it comes to banking, budgeting and investing.

Part 2: Saving for the Future & Building a Legacy – The crux of this workshop will provide a holistic view of what retirement lifestyle looks like for each individual. You will learn:

  • How to plan ahead for different life stages before and during retirement.
  • How to create projected cash flow to sustain your desired retirement lifestyle.
  • Types of retirement income and how investments, inflation and other outside factors can impact retirement plans.
  • Estate planning tips.

Lastly, we will finish the evening with an opportunity to ask your personalized questions and walk away with tangible takeaways and tools for your financial success.

Oh all that and when you buy your ticket, we will send you an introspective exercise that will have you exploring your current relationship with money and how to elevate awareness of the money mindset you want to create.

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Jennifer Underwood, Vancity – Wealth Planner

Continuing on after their 2016 merger with Vancity, she worked her way from teller and Accounts Manager to her current role as Wealth Planner in the Vancouver head office. Having acquired financial management certification from BCIT, she is currently studying for the Certified Financial Planner exam.
