About Us

WHO ARE WE?

Taxevity is an independent family enterprise serving Ontario professionals, business owners and families from Etobicoke. We specialize in the niche of life and health insurance.

We collaborate with independent experts in other specialties such as financial planning, managing investments, tax planning, successful ageing and legal matters (e.g., drafting Wills). This gives you integrated solutions from a diverse team.

In contrast, "one-stop" shops often offer financial plans, investments and insurance. This may be convenient, but you face compromises:

  • poor retention: the genuine specialists tend to leave to be independent and work with similar minds
  • higher overhead: revenue may be split between the firm, the investment advisor and the insurance advisor. This can lead to pressure to sell expensive products. You pay.

At Taxevity, you benefit from independence, lower overhead and extra expertise.
